Weird and Wacky Holidays

When most of us think of holidays, we think of days like Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years or Labor Day. Most of us don't think of Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, National Superhero Day or Save the Rhino Day. Yet these observances are just as official as any other holiday. We just don't get to take these days off school.

Where Do these Wacky Days Come From?

Anyone can apply to their government or to the United Nations to have their day formalized. Unless the day is racist, sexist or otherwise hateful, it is usually accepted. This has led to some pretty strange holidays but making these days official also takes up a lot of time in the US congress. Let's check some out!

    all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

    So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

    Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
