I went to a Catholic high school and there I discovered Holy Days I'd had no clue existed. I'd get to school and find out it was an all school mass kinda day. The holy day would just sort of sneak up on me and BAM it's the Feast Day of Saint Someone or Other.
That's how I want my special holidays to work. I want them to sneak up on people and BAM! It's a holiday.
Like The Feast of the Porkception. To celebrate this holiday, you eat spectacular bacon dishes that other people prepare for you all day long. You're parking the parking garage? someone's waiting with a platter of super crispy bacon. At the first meeting of the day, you get a plate full of bundukies placed in front of you. At lunch, it's bacon quiche. And so on throughout the day.
Or how about The Sacred Day of Stories? No matter where you are or what you're doing, you should always have a book with you. During this holiday (which I feel should occur monthly) everyone stops what they're doing, sits down and reads. It should be a Holy Day of Obligation. Instant peace.
Now, the last holiday is the one I'm the most excited about - The Feast of Our Lady of Sleep. On this day, which should also occur monthly, your alarm automatically shuts itself off and BAM! You get to stay in bed - all day if you want. And your work waits for you while you catch up on all the sleep you've lost trying to fit everything else in.
All right...I'm waiting. When can celebrate the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sleep? And what holidays would you create?
