It’s “Make Up Your Own Holiday” Day- Let’s Have Some Fun!!!


I have fun writing and reading about some of the holidays that exist, such as Make Up Your Own Holiday“Something On a Stick Day” or “Weed Appreciation Day.”  Often many of you ask me where I find these days, and, of course, the answer is On the Internet!


Well, March 26th is “Make Up Your own Holiday” day.

No known origin that I can find but who cares! The Kansas Jayhawks got knocked out of the tourney in the 2nd round (bummer) so I have to find something to celebrate!


So just for fun how about letting us know what holiday you’d make up.

How would you celebrate it?


How about .....

Only Eat Chocolate Day

Say “No: to Everyone Day

Only Do What You Want Day

Call 5 Family Members Day


Of course, this is just for fun!  But if you could, what holiday would you create and how would you celebrate it?

Hi Kathy - I'm sitting here surrounded by my animals, so I'm getting the day I needed, but I don't need to be selfish about it. How about kiss your furry friends on the lips day?

Kathy, last week, I DID make up my own holiday! It was on Dick Greenberg's birthday, but I didn't know that til later. I designated March 18th National Kiss a Frog Day! It was somewhat tongue-in-cheek as I was highlighting the fact that it was National Wildlife Week, so I wrote about good frogs and bad frogs AND frog princes (my husband!)

I didn't know who designates holidays, so Beth Atalay commented on a site to go to where you can apply for one. HOWEVER, they are EXPENSIVE! I think that if mine had been accepted (haven't heard yet), that it would start at about $1499.00!

Don't think I wanna spend that right now.

Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor (503)755-2905, you could always play for free and announcing your very own holiday in the rain. I had no idea it would cost that high. Yikes..

Ron and Alexandra- I don't think there are as many Gold Stars being given out, but instead unless you screen for just Featured posts, you will see a lot of "Best" Q&A, Best Questions, Best Answers, and Best in certain groups.  Ron & Alexandra Seigel 

Dick- you know, I've loved all of my dogs and cats. And when both of my Brittanys went blind, I collected their pee and gave one of them daily shots for diabetes.  But.... I just can't kiss my furry friends on the lips.  But... I'm very happy that you have your furry friends around you!!!   Dick Greenberg 

Gayle- did not know that you can apply to have a special day!!!But at $1499, I think I'll pass as well!!!

I can still celebrate, since Notre Dame is still alive in the tourney. I think my wife will celebrate when basketball is over.

A no brain-er for me.  A full day of golf with my son, grandson and best friend.  Good times and the company can't be beat.  Otherwise a road trip with the wife

I like this Kathy Streib !  My kids are all grown and my 3 grandkids from my oldest daughter are all grown too, accept one at 13 years old. I'd love a day, not a holiday , just our own day at the beach or in the woods somewhere to celebrate the fact how amazing it is to be alive in these times and to enjoy each other telling stories all day around a campfire with no distractions and no technology. And to thread the underlying convo, thinking about the awesomeness and the odds of the shear fact we're family. Great idea and a great post!
