Get the creativity flowing...๐Ÿ™‹๐ŸŒˆ

Well let me tell you I did some research on holidays.

There are some extremely funny ones that people have actually passed. Regular folk like you & me have passed holidays. You may not get the day off but it's recognized nationally. There's a pretty simple way to do it AND it gives you a years calendar on all the weird holiday's people have passed. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Like bobbybob, I was thinking Zipwire..... in an old closed down slate mine in Wales(Uk) it has the longest zipwire in the world!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

Oh no way, that and bungee jumping not for me , Im Afraid ๐Ÿ‘Ž I like to keep my feet in the ground, I donโ€™t even like flying ๐Ÿ˜ณ

You wouldn't get me doing zip wire or bungee jumping!! I don't mind flying though!! Xxxx

Luna_Child
Luna_ChildReading Rabbits in reply to Mydexter

Oh gosh I don't like flying either! I have to sit by the window, take a tranquilizer and I white knuckle it the whole way. ๐Ÿ™„ I'm a nervous wreck. I Amtrak it whenever I can. I love the ๐Ÿš† train and seeing the country side. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I would assume that with zip wire, which sounds exhilarating, I understand you're hooked up as safely as possible so your feet land safely? I'll try if you try. Lol. I'd definitely try that. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š It sounds fun! I totally understand. So maybe a National Keep Your Feet on the Ground Day! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ

Seriously because of COVID it makes good sense. We are all at wits end. Here it's so bad , because we are the smallest state the "experts" are saying by the time this ends ๐Ÿ™, the whole state would have had covid. The numbers per day that are positive far surpass the any other time during this entire nightmare. It's frightening and the numbers are staggering!! I'm terrified for my parents! Thankfully Pfizer and whoever else made Rhode Island one of the first 4 states to get the vaccine which I hear is 95% effective. I hope this all done by summer which is probably a bit too optimistic but I pray for it. Our Governor has placed some schools on virtual or just " out"because they've exhausted resources to run the classrooms. Superintendents are doing it. Schools should have never been put back in session. The experts blew it. They said it was for kids socialization and while I'm everything for kids best interest this has frustrated them beyond since they can't play or sit next to each other talk to each other even through wearing masks and social distancing they can't be with their pals. Plus a lot of teachers and kids are sick now with covid-19. The older high school kids are not cooperating because they jump in their cars as a group after school and pull their masks off. I'm not surprised! Some adults are doing the same thing so needless to say being such a small state more restrictions are put in place.

My heart, Love & Healing Prayers go out to everyone here who has lost family or friends or both through COVID or are suffering with it now. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜žโค๏ธ

There is too much hate. People don't understand life can end on a dime. Why can't their be peace? It's ashame. We are all people regardless of color, nationalities, religion,

I agree that Hb, who I've gotten to know here is an amazing young lady who carries herself with dignity and self respect. She's always thinking of other's wins the prize here a long with some others for one of the truly selfless national holiday ideas.

Definitely too much!

National Quietness Day. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have a selfish reason for this. My brain injury left me with the inability to filter out background noise. I can't concentrate on anything when there are background sounds. I get sensory overload where my brain shuts down and I become really ill for several hours. You'd be surprised at how few places are 'quiet. ' Almost every shop/cafe or anywhere else - even doctors surgeries etc . play background music. There is traffic noise, planes, (there are military helicopters around my area!) you name it, it's making a noise. None of this ever used to bother me. I have become aware that people with several different conditions find noise troublesome.

I am sure you didn't want a sermon from me as an answer, but I am glad to get it off my chest!

(I am currently working with a hearing therapist to try and reprogramme my brain!)

Luna_Child
Luna_ChildReading Rabbits in reply to Marnie22

I'm sorry about your brain surgery and your inability to filter out back ground noise. I cannot imagine how frustrating that must be. Frustrating is putting it mildly I would assume. My cousin had Robotics surgery on a hernia and this involved the Anesthesiologist and long story lost woke up from surgery and now grieves the loss of hearing and Tinnitus in one ear. I don't know what that's like and sending prayers to you for all you've been through.

Sending you big hugs ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ™

I really feel for you,and send my love,I have totally the opposite problem,though not as serious as yours,I can't stand quiet,I have really bad tinnitus and this noise in my head is so distracting,but it does get a little better over time,with CBT and trying to reprogram the brain to accept the noise as normal, keep at it,all the best ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

Luna_Child
Luna_ChildReading Rabbits in reply to Judyspal

I'm sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ž

I have to tell you my cousin had Robotics surgery on a hernia and long story short was left with Tinnitus and almost total deafness in one ear. What she explained and I'm sorry I cannot understand because I haven't had Tinnitus or deafness , is so frustrating and sad. My heart goes out to you also. It's been rough when your career is listening and talking to people. It could have been worse. Much worse. Still a loss she grieves.

Big Hugs ๐Ÿค—

National free tv licence for over 75s day.....

Luna_Child
Luna_ChildReading Rabbits in reply to Veteran250

May I ask what a TV license is as I am in the states and I have never heard the term.

Is it free cable? Maybe I appear so incredibly stupid ๐Ÿ™„ however learning new terms from another country is very educating.

Thank you! Yes National Free TV Licence for 75s a day seems like a great awesome idea! ,๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ™‹

BoomerSwimmer, you know I love this idea having 3 myself!!! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฆด๐Ÿ’“

So the National Dog Day, would be a day to be "everything dog" to your dog maybe taking your dog to work or everyone has the day off with pay to do everything with your dog spending the day together ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ• and doing doggy stuff, cuddling, walks etc..spells L.O.V.E. to me!! ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿพ
