Writing Prompt: Create Your Own Holiday

Writing prompt for creative writers: If you had the ability to add one holiday to the calendar, what holiday would you create? Why would this day be considered important? In what way would people celebrate this holiday? Would you be offended if the holiday became an opportunity for retail stores to hold sales? How would you keep the value of your own holiday? Would there be special foods associated with your special day? Would you take the day off from work to celebrate? Would you want the whole world to celebrate with you, or is this holiday just for you? Share your newly invented holiday with us by posting it here. Better yet, turn it into a poem, short story, or essay!

If you’re holding on to work that you’d like to see published, Writer’s Relief’s submission services can help.
