Video Games Day: July 8

Each year, Video Games Day falls on July 8. There’s also another holiday called National Video Games Day that lands on September 12. You know what that means – two days of celebration for all you lucky gamers out there!


About Video Games

Video Games Day celebrates popular video games that stormed onto the market and changed the way kids play games. From Atari to Nintendo to Xbox, video games provide hours of playing time on your TV set and computer screen.

In your grandma and grandpa's day, they had stick horses for toys and playtime. Today, kids (big and little) have an enormous array of video games to play. Before you get tired of one game, another one hits the market.

How to Celebrate

What better way to celebrate Video Games Day than by playing video games?! If you are off from school (or if you are a big kid off from work), make this a marathon day for video games. Better still, invite a few friends and hold a competition. Just make sure that you have enough controllers!

This angers me that they made such a big deal out of it. Like DisneyanimeLover said: "I think it's fine to talk about.

Should these things really be taught or talked about in sixth grade? Should the Holocaust? Should Slavery? Should the Civil Rights movement? Because each of those subjects are definitely more inappropriate than the LGBT and what they stand for and yet it continues to be taught by teachers and learned by children in grades as low as fourth grade. Compared to those events in history, the LGBT discussion seems more like The Cat In The Cat than an inappropriate topic. And besides if a student feels they are mature enough to want to boraden their perspective and thoughts then they should be allowed to do it and not be oppressed or told they're wrong because their views differ from the status quo. Should children really be taught sexuality outside of Specs Ed class? Be honest here, none of us would want our kids to go to school and be lectured on the LGBT.  Well, actually that's not entirely true. ^ It depends on the parents. If they are conservatives, then that'll be true. However, they're lots of liberals who wouldn't mind.  My school educates us on LGBTQ+ quite often, and the students don't mind. Most enjoy it. I've only heard one family complain, and they were conservative.  The teachers are people with political and social opinions as well, which makes it hard to teach fairly. What curriculum would there be?
