Time for a new officially-sanctioned Small Rebellion!
Ever notice how we usually only celebrate something if the calendar gives us permission? You know, if the fine print on a particular day says “St. Patrick’s Day,” we dress up in green and eat corned beef. If it reads “independence Day,” we grill up some food and ignite some fireworks.
Kids, on the other hand, celebrate everything. Kindergartners celebrate Groundhog Day, Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and even the 100th Day of School! But kids have it right. You see, every day is a holiday. It’s just that on most days, what to celebrate is up to you.
The Mission: Make up your own holiday. (Adultitis-infested calendars of the world be damned!) Declare one of the days this week a holiday, give it a name, and do something to celebrate it.
And then share your holiday online with the hashtag #smallrebellion3.
