    Default Why don't people make up holidays? What holiday would you create?

    I feel so inspired by Frank Costanza's Festivus- which that episode was based on one of the writer's family who really celebrated the holiday.

    I mean- I think that people should make up their own holiday that they and their close friends get together and celebrate each year.

    I am going to get a few friends together and see if we can't brainstorm and come up with a holiday- complete with decoration theme, menu, traditions and mythology, that we can celebrate together every year. I think it would be cool to have a holiday that is really personal and fun that is your own.

    Traditions can lose meaningfulness and or relevance as the years progress and generations go by- why not reinvent tradtions and make things your own and make them more relevent- make them fun?

    I wonder if anyone here has ideas or has a holiday that they have made up and celebrate with friends.

    I don't celebrate my own holidays but me and a group of friends have made our own traditions for some already existing events/holidays. It's nice to know that you'll always be able to catch up with a certain people on a particular occasions despite anything else that's going on. Great idea imo.

    All current holidays are technically made up.

    You should really take a look at my calender. Every page has one or two NTish holidays listed. Most of them were expanded from any kind of original significance and fairly undistinguished among commoners. I celebrate with others around the internet and even in my town.

    I'd add an extra Saturday to the week. Extreme Saturday.

    There would also be a day where everyone would inherits musical skills and take turns guitar soloing in a giant field.

    I concur on this.... Festivus needs to take off just for the sole fact that if a Seinfeld episode can create a holiday..... well, i wouldn't say ANYONE could generate that kind of cultural momentum, but at least you know its possible!

    All hail Festivus

    I don't believe there can ever be too many seasonally based holidays. So there should be more. Maybe a revival of some defunct pagan celebrations?

    I don't really make up holidays, but I do themed Friday nights when I'm
    bored.

    A guy at work, in response to my question, "What do you think of Valentine's Day?" said that all Hallmark holidays are bullshit, and there should be only one holiday, and it should be called Leave Me The Fuck Alone Day.

    I actually kind of like that idea.

    We haven't thought of a date for it yet, but if anyone has suggestions, bring them on.

    "Everybody Must Fuck Day"

    It's a floating holiday. Whenever I feel like it.
