Wonderful Wacky Holidays

I discovered the Wiggle Your Toes holiday when I was doing research for The Complete Idiot's Guide to Backyard Adventures which was published in 2008. (Unfortunately, the book is no longer published. However, I do have a few copies available in my eBay shop.) While my Wacky Holiday chapter did not make it into the book, there is an appendix of A Year of Holidays to Celebrate. Of all the wild and wacky holidays I found, this has got to be my favorite. This might be the crazy year to seriously celebrate --

Wiggle Your Toes!

August sixth, wake the kids with “Wiggle your toes!” Then celebrate by wiggling
your toes all day. Pick a nonsensical reason for having to wiggle your toes – all day long. Maybe each “please” requires a toe wiggle before getting the requested item. You or your teens can send out an email or card a few days before August sixth to dear friends or family or just a friend that needs a reason to smile and announce that on the morning of August sixth, before rolling out of bed – they should remember to celebrate the day – and “wiggle their toes”!

You may want to add other times during the day when they should wiggle their toes – say for instance every time someone says “Have a nice day”! All those wiggles could cause a few giggles and suddenly the day is just a little bit brighter. If you’re good at verse, then make up a poem about wiggling your toes and add it to your message or recite it several times during the day, especially when someone is least expecting it. Enjoy!
