Decoration in Singapur

Weird holidays

With its ~365 different days, the year offers plenty of opportunities to do justice to creativity all over the world. There is probably not a single day on which something, sometimes very curious, is not celebrated somewhere. And why not? Any occasion to celebrate is a good occasion!

Personal discoveries

On my travels, I have sometimes been lucky enough to unexpectedly burst into a festivity: There were romantic weddings on the beach, carnivals with feather decorations, traditional mountain festivals in a village of 100 people, a Star Wars procession, donkey races, cycling for the Thai queen, from self-made lanterns and colorful flower decorations in the streets to huge light installations on the water. And indeed, the unplanned celebrations have somehow always been the most beautiful to me.

Besides the known greats

Of course, you can get caught up in the big, traditional anniversaries and start preparing for Halloween, Christmas or New Year's Eve all year long - there are plenty of creative decorations and amusing activities for those, too. But apart from calendar and religious occasions, there are also a surprising number of funny, unnecessary, strange and interesting holidays - which sometimes really make you wonder how they came to be. And yet it's nice to commemorate even the small everyday things.

Although no days off are introduced in honor of the chocolate cake (January 27), the hiccup (March 16), the dirty dish (May 18) or the CAPSLOCK (June 29). Nevertheless, they are wonderful occasions to celebrate kissing (July 06), dancing (April 29), playing (May 28) or smiling (June 15)

Every family and every circle of friends has its own rituals and it is also possible to integrate such positive actions as planting a flower (March 12), an extensive pillow fight (April 7), jumping in puddles together (January 11) or inventing new tongue twisters (November 14).

And if you need a reason to do something crazy again, you can also go for a walk with your houseplant on July 27, have a picnic with your teddy bear on July 10, or ask silly questions on September 28 and do everything backwards on January 31.

Best of weird holidays

So that one does not miss the best highlights of the year, there are so mad collections like on with additional information to each listed event. You can find the current links daily under the calendar of my website.

In any case, I hope you have fun discovering and trying out some new traditions and would be happy to hear about them. Maybe we can even introduce something annual ourselves: How about a day for taking pictures and spreading happy smileys? :D
