HOLIDAILY

WHAT'S IN A DAY?

 

Holidaily celebrates invented holidays from people of all ages, around the globe. This community honoring project plants annual love in the calendar we all share.

Humans mark time, and feel connected, by engaging in community-witnessed rituals, like graduations, Mother's Day and Father's Day, birthdays and funerals. When a couple elopes, sometimes family and friends feel the wedding didn't happen, even when they see the pictures - because it didn't happen for them!

 

Humans create holidays to honor our shared lives. We need to celebrate together. 

 

Every holiday was created by someone. It's your turn!

6 STEPS TO

CREATE YOUR HOLIDAY 

1. Are you honoring a person, thing, feeling, action, or something else?

2. How will people celebrate? 

What will they do? 

3. Choose a name.

4. Choose a date.

5. Tell people! 

6. Submit your new holiday to potentially be included in Holidaily!

Connector's Day

My birthday

I am an unstoppable connector for others. If I know someone wants something great,

I will open my network on the spot. Connector's Day honors the person

who introduced you to that person

who then changed your life. 

I honor connectors by:

Sending two cards, from me

and from the pivotal person I met, 

to the person who introduced us.
 

LOVE is ART is HUMOR is ART is LOVE.
