I have to begin by saying that this post is inspired by Parents magazine. Or rather, their tweet. Their tweet read, “Friday is National Donut Day! Free donut at krispy kreme find one near you http://bit.ly/nYw4I. “
WHAT? National Donut Day! You are probably thinking the same thing that I was thinking. What in the world will they think of next? I also was wondering if this diminishes the value of what I would consider traditional, real holidays – i.e. Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, etc.
Then, I mentioned the holiday to my husband and Little Buddy. Little Buddy lit up like a Christmas tree (our favorite holiday)! He was so excited and asked how we were going to celebrate. So, now I believe I am part of the commercialization of odd-ball holidays that my Daddy would have said were never meant to be holidays.
I’m thinking of how I can incorporate these cute, fun “holi”days into our homeschool plans. It will definitely keep things fun and interesting. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
For National Donut Day, we don’t have a Krispy Kreme near us. Our celebration will be pancakes with a hole in the middle, playing tic-tac-toe, and maybe some tubing (since we are at the lake).
Thanks Parents, I think it will add to our homeschool experience and definitely will make Little Buddy happy. Glad I follow you on Twitter.
