I know I'm a little early with my Halloween wishes, but I love holidays so much (especially Halloween!) that I always wish they lasted more than just one day. I mean, if people spend so much time anticipating something, isn't it too bad that after 24-hours it's over?
What about birthdays? Getting birthday wishes is so delightful -- it makes you smile, makes you feel special -- so don't you wish it went on a bit longer than one day? How about a birthweek? That would give your friends, family, and co-workers a whole week to find time to give you cards, send texts and e-cards, buy gifts and celebrate with you!
Can you imagine a Christmas week? Okay, we kinda get a week vacay between Christmas and New Year, but what about the day itself? You know how excited you were as a kid to wake up Christmas morning and see loads of presents under the tree? But after a few hours (or minutes!) all that's left are torn wrappings and empty boxes. And you keep looking under the tree or feeling inside the stocking, wishing for the thrill of another few gifts to open. Well, I think that should be spread out over a few days at least.
Plus, work vacations. Shouldn't we get 4-5 days for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, etc.? These would be paid vacations of course!
I think we need more time to celebrate holidays and birthdays. Who's with me?
