Competition: Round Twenty
Posted 04 April 2004 - 07:03 PM
"O! How this spring of Love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day."
Enough of this English Major stuff. April ain't just Poetry Month, folks! It's International Guitar Month. National Anxiety Month. National Humor Month. National Garden Month. Math Awareness Month. National Welding Month!
And, oh, the Food Holidays in April. Click on your Calendar and start typing. (Sorry, we missed April 2 -- PBJ Day)
April 14: Pecan Day
April 16: Eggs Benedict Day
April 17: National Cheeseball Day
April 19: A High Holy Day -- Garlic Day
April 22: Jelly Bean Day
April 24: Pig in a Blanket Day
April 25: Zucchini Bread Day (Er, in April?)
April 26: Pretzel Day
April 29: "Shrimp Scampi " Day
Here's the challenge: Choose one of these Food Festivals and pretend that it's a bank holiday, a day off holiday, an over-the-hills-and-through-the-woods kind of day. Are there traditional songs, sides and sports on TV? How do you decorate the table? Do you pull names for the family gift exchange?
Have a wonderful month, you amusing (but anxious) math-aware, guitar strumming, gardening, poetic arc welders!
I know what I'm using for a tablecloth on the 24th.
Get festive here.

I'm afraid to ask these folks to dinner on the 16th --Eggs Benedict Day. On the other hand, I bet Hollandaise is a great hair conditioner.
Wiping whipped cream from my decolletage, I urge you to party on here.

I'm closing this contest at midnight, May 1, in a time zone of your choice.
