Obscure Holiday’s: November

Published November 1, 2015 by NoctuaKnight

Have you ever heard from some crazy friend that some obscure holiday is today?

“It’s National plush animal lovers day!”

“Today is national hug a tennis player day!”

“I think tomorrow is national dress like a nerd day… so.. be yourself!”

There are tons of Nationally obscure holidays like that and today, I am giving you the opportunity to be the crazy friend that mentions them. And also some ideas on how to celebrate them. (For November at least! Tell me if you like it ๐Ÿ™‚ )

November 2ndLook for circles day:ย I mean I suppose this sounds sort of lame, but imagine getting unnecessarily excited about it and pointing out random circles with an unnecessary amount of energy to your friends and acquaintances, and even strangers. The point is people will be happy you are putting in such an effort to look for circles. So happy that their happiness may bubble out of them and they will laugh. Bonus points if you wear a circle themed outfit!

November 3rd-Sandwich day: Eat a sandwich for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a sandwich for dinner. Inquire what kind of sandwich everyone else is eating. If they don’t have a sandwich, ask them why “It’s national sandwich day, why would you skip a sandwich opportunity today of all days?” Switch the conversations back to sandwiches as often as possible.

November 7th- National book lovers day: Not too obscure but how cute is it they have a day for that. Read books. Talk about books. Adore Books. Be a book.

November 8th- Cook something bold day: Invite all your friends over for a potluck encouraging bold dishes. Or just cook something bold yourself. (What even is bold cooking? Eccentric? An extroverted dish? Spicy? This: Dish?)

November 13th- Sadie Hawkins Day:ย Wear Khaki pants. Dance. Ask people if they like your sweater. Listen to this song: Sadie Hawkins Dance

November 16th -Have a party with your bear day:ย Get a teddy bear and party. With balloons.

November 21st- World hello day:ย Learn hello in all kinds of different languages. Say hello to a bunch of people.

November the day after the day after thanksgiving-buy nothing day: Don’t buy anything.

I hope you enjoy celebrating these obscure holidays this month. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for reading.

NaBloPoMo (That means “National Blog Post Month!)

Published October 28, 2015 by NoctuaKnight

November is insane. Just a heads up. There are all kinds of different events that happen in November. Not including Thanksgiving and the fact that Christmas starts in November. (hahaha)

Any and every writing challenge to ever exist takes place in November. (Well, maybe not EVERY challenge) Most of you have probably heard of the crazy writing challenges that come up in November that just look like a conglomeration of random syllables. NaNoWriMo stands for National novel writing month. There’s also NaPlaWriMo (National playwright month) and (drum roll) National Blog Post month.Each of these challenges requires you to write something every day.

For the novel, your goal is to work towards writing a novel or work on a novel by writing a little bit every day. Same concept for playwright except you are writing a play. (shocker)

For the blog post however you have to publish a blog post every day.

I think I’m going to take part in the madness. (Not all of the challenges, I am not going for triple madness.) I think I will try and conquer the blog post challenge and publish at least one post per day.

Although if I miss some days, forgive me, because November is shaping up to be a pretty important month, school-wise. I’m working on my senior research project all through-out November. (We are supposed to find something we love and tie it into literature, exciting. I’m thinking of doing psychology and how it applies to the Harry Potter series ๐Ÿ™‚ ) The research project kind of takes priority over my blog, sorry guys. But I will try and do something most of the days.

Okay, well that’s all I have to say about the crazy writing challenges. ย Thank you for reading my readership! ๐Ÿ™‚
