I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

International Pillow Fight day

On every first Saturday in April there are HUGE pillow fights in major cities all over the world. We had really wanted to go to the Boston Pillow Fight but with preparing for Easter we weren't able to. So I Planned with a couple friends to have a pillow fight in my yard. Everyone had shown up except for one of my friends. We waited a short while then decided we would go to her!
So we all marched a block or two to my friend's house with pillows to surprise her. She was just coming home from her Grandparent's house so as she rounded the corner I had her sister hand her a pillow while we were hiding and then we mauled her! She was VERY surprised!
Some one saw us fighting and I said "Happy Pillow Fight Day" She looked rather confused and Said back "Happy Pillow Fight day" !

Betcha can't guess who it was we surprised!
Look! Spider Man! ^

No Housework Day

So We are trying to get ready for Easter and I haven't done any housework. I am instead helping mom with the cooking for Easter dinner. I will say, I much prefer cooking to housework!
Have a great relaxed day, and don't do any housework!

Window Safety Week

April first through seventh is window safety week. Here's a list of Window Safety tips:
  • Be sure the windows are never painted or nailed shut. A window must be able to open to provide escape in an emergency.
  • If small children are around only open the top part of windows - or only high windows - if air is needed. Otherwise keep all windows shut and locked.
  • have children play away from any windows. Falling through a window could be fetal for a child.
  • In attempt to make any possible fall less harmful try to have shrubs, mulch, or grass underneath windows outside.
  • Try to keep any thing that children can climb on away from the windows.

Happy Window Safety week!
