Make Your Own Holiday (Mar. 26)

March 25, 2009

A fellow mom mentioned that tomorrow (March 26) is Make Your Own Holiday, and I had to laugh about it, because her teenage daughter wanted to “make” Christmas.  I have a 2-year-old who would be all over that idea — he’s constantly asking when we’ll put up the Christmas tree!  I can think of a few other days to celebrate … maybe “Be Nice to Your Mom” day, or “Kids Wash the Dishes Day,” or something along those lines.

Lest you think I’m making this holiday up, I cited some sources, including the Christian Science Monitor and the original reference guide to quirky holidays since 1957, Chase’s Calendar of Events. (It includes 12,000 quirky holidays and counting, thank you very much!)  You can even send an e-card marking the day.
