LSC219 - THAT'S A Holiday? {5/8/09}
LSC219 – THAT’S A Holiday???

I just can’t believe we are into the second week of May already! Mother’s Day is almost here, and Memorial Day is later in the month, but will be here sooner than we know it. But there are many other holidays in May too.

For this challenge we are making projects that reflect and represent any May celebration or holiday. I have listed a few fun ones, and some traditional holidays as well, but you are welcome to Google “May holidays” as there are MANY more! (Who decides this stuff anyway?)
Did you know May 8th (this post date) is NO SOCKS Day and HAVE A COKE Day?? Sounds good to me!

And Moms will like May 10th – CLEAN UP YOUR ROOM Day!

Please upload only NEW creations for this challenge.
Your project should clearly show the theme of your chosen May holiday or celebration. No other limits. List your holiday in your description, please.

Keyword: LSC219 (no spaces)

May is:
American Bike Month
Asparagus Month
Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month
National BBQ Month
National Egg Month
National Strawberry Month

During May:
Save the Rhino Day (May 1)
Teacher Appreciation Week
National Pet Week
Mother’s Day (second Sunday in May)
Twilight Zone Day (May 11)
National Dance Like a Chicken Day (May 14)
Armed Forces Day (third Saturday in May)
Pack Rat Day (May 17)
Circus Day (May 19th)
Memorial Day (May 30th-observed last Monday in May)

Again, there are many more – these are just to get you going!

GREAT challenge, Judy!

I needed to make a Mother's Day card for Mother from my siblings, so I went with a "traditional" holiday!

Here's today's submission

angelladcrockett 05-08-2009 03:30 AM

Okay, I kinda cheated....I had just posted my card lastnight when I saw this challenge. It fit my card, so I jumped on the bandwagon!!! I will try tonight to choose a holiday and make one from scratch! Thanks, Judy!
