Each month, the Severna Park Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Ms. Weiss’ class at Folger McKinsey Elementary School answered the question:
If you could make up a new holiday, what would it be?
I want a new holiday: National Friendship Day.
The Kids Yes Day Holiday. Every kid gets what they would like and there is no school.
Lazy Monday. You know how everybody’s always tired and lazy on a Monday morning? Every Monday is a day off! So stay in your pajamas and be lazy!
Pet Day where you do something for a pet or a pet shelter. For example, donating money to a pet shelter or getting your pet a new toy!
World War I Day should be on the day World War I ended, and we could celebrate World War I day annually.
I think Son Day because all sons should be appreciated by everyone! I think that so we will have assistants and we can tell our assistants to get something.
Children’s Appreciation Day where adults appreciate children.
Children’s Day U.S.
Baby Day. I would make a Baby Day to celebrate all the babies in the world.
If I could create my own holiday, it would be Play Outside Day.
Fun Day! Everybody has fun, and if you’re not having fun, go have some fun!
If I could create a new holiday it would be Fall Day. I choose this because the first day of fall is my birthday, and who wants to have school on your birthday?
My holiday would be State Day! Celebrate your state’s features.
National Labradoodle Day.
I think that there should be a new holiday called Fifth-Grade Day. I think that because fifth-graders are amazing.
No School Week. There are only two breaks in the year.
I would make a present day when everybody comes in and gives everyone presents.
Pay Day, a week off before school and two weeks off after Pay Day. You get to give people gifts, but the gift is $5 and you give a note telling the person why you chose them.
Well, there has to be a Harry Potter holiday!
