Everything has a holiday these days. Case in point: head on over to the Days of the Year website, and you will find a day to celebrate almost anything from hot dogs to origami and everything in between.
So who is to say that you can’t create your own holiday? Maybe it wouldn’t be recognized by the larger world, but you can share it with your friends and family. You can create that special day to celebrate something special or even something ordinary! There are no rules when it comes to creating your own holiday, but here are a few tips to help you celebrate whatever you want in the right style.
1. Make sure your holiday is about something that is special to you. It will be more meaningful to you and your loved ones if it is something you are known for and love. It could be something like celebrating your favourite TV show’s premiere every year or an annual family tournament of a board game. As long as it is special to you, it is perfect to celebrate for a holiday.
2. Do something to celebrate. Since most people have traditions for major holidays, your holiday should have some sort of tradition for you to celebrate. The best part is it can be anything! You could create a holiday to honour the first snowfall and celebrate by having a snowman building contest or a holiday to celebrate the first day of summer by buying brand new flip flops. Go crazy and have fun!
3. Include your family and friends. The best part about holidays is sharing them with your loved ones. Your own personal holiday can be celebrated together and help bring your family and friends close. If you live far away, include family members through social media or design your own custom holiday cards with SendOutCards!
Remember that holidays are meant to be fun and to bring people together, so have fun creating your own holiday and the traditions that go with it. Then you can savor the memories that will be created!
