HOLIDAY DAY
Winter Camp XXIII - 1999

This day, with Steve Clark leading and Lou Pezet as adviser, is not quite firm yet. It will either be a series of activities relating to a single holiday, or a group of holidays compressed into a single day. If you have an opinion, now's the time to share it

Oh and we need pinatas, definitely pinatas.

On Thursday, 25-Nov-99 00:36:47 EST, Steve Clark said

If there are any other troops in camp we could do a parade for them??? Also, we should have birthday cake since that is sort of a holiday and we have at least two birthdays up at wintercamp....

On Wednesday, 24-Nov-99 22:55:01 EST, Steve D. said

Watching is bad. I like doing. If we're going to do anything involving a parade, we should do something cool like build a float, or make our own balloon and parade it through camp or something.

On Wednesday, 24-Nov-99 22:46:44 EST, Steve Clark said

We could watch a Christmas parade (or a sports game) in honor fo Christmas too.

On Sunday, 14-Nov-99 23:39:48 EST, Steve Clark said

Maybe we can celebrate Vetran's Day or Memorial Day by doing somethign in memory of those who have died for our country.......also I want to have fireworks in honor of Fourth of July

On Thursday, 04-Nov-99 10:34:20 EST, Steve Clark said

One thing I am certain of is that the is no mistle toe!!!


On Monday, 01-Nov-99 00:36:46 EST, Steve Clark said

Another varient on the Halloween idea is that we take candy around to all the other troops that are camped up at D-A that weekend. Or we could have a pumpkin carving contest (or maybe that could be a different activity)

On Monday, 25-Oct-99 10:39:06 EDT, Steve Clark said

Oh yeah and we can all put our shoes out (like they used to in Germany and Italy and Ireland and so on and so forth) so we can get Christmas goodies in them.

On Monday, 25-Oct-99 10:36:09 EDT, Steve Clark said

We could do like a human nativity scene or something then I guess????

On Monday, 25-Oct-99 10:34:33 EDT, Steve Clark said

Every year there is always this group of people that go out early in the morning and go swimming in the snow (I think it is in Alaska) . . . anyways does anyone know if that is a Holiday? Caz I want to do a polar bear swim.

On Thursday, 21-Oct-99 07:52:17 EDT, Lou said

The other thought is to take some regular holidays and do traditional activities. I know that in Ireland St. Patricks day is not about going out and getting smashed. And us americans have just used the name Cinco de Mayo as and excuse.

On Wednesday, 20-Oct-99 16:51:56 EDT, Steve said

I'll put up some Lincoln's and some Jefferson's.

On Wednesday, 20-Oct-99 14:48:00 EDT, Steve Clark said

We might be able to do President's Day. Like in conjuction with some event but the winners get some dead presidents (of course that is if someone wants to put up a small reward for the winning team. . . someone as in not me).

On Tuesday, 19-Oct-99 13:17:54 EDT, Lou said

I think we should come up with some fairly unknown holiday's to base events around. (but nothing depressing)

On Tuesday, 19-Oct-99 13:03:53 EDT, Steve Clark said

Would Cinco de Mayo be a good holiday to create lunch around then?

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 22:31:53 EDT, Steve Clark said

Oh yeah we could pull for a Secret Santa thing in the morning, or at the beginning of the week.......I like the beginning of the week better because we can drop hints to our person all weekette long and we will have all weekette long to make it(before we give it to them)......any thoughts on how or if we should do that

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 22:29:02 EDT, Steve Clark said

The main thing about the Chanukkah Dessert is that we keep kosher........I got the one recipe from my grandma.......I will see if she has any other recipes to suggest as well

Some of this schedule I am not sold on so please contine to suggest stuff in replacement or in addition to or whatever......of course you have to wear green the whole day or be susceptible to pinching......

Certainly you will include Cinco de Mayo? You could have a pita...

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 16:19:43 EDT, Steve D. said

So is the plan to pick an assortment of holidays both little-known and well-known? I have a book of holidays like that (comes in handy for the news).

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 14:45:47 EDT, Ron Donohue said

We might try for a Guy Fawkes Day (England), the main feature of which is a huge late night bonfire.

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 12:50:46 EDT, Steve Clark said

I think both for ease of planning and for variety of activities that we do a group of holidays compressed into one day. Steve and/or Ron, can you email me with some possible activities dealing with Boxing day or Canada day, or post some. Thanks in advance. P.S. I will post a list of activities that I have thought up when I get home tonight.

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 10:30:24 EDT, Lou said

I see a possible Holiday/Dr. Suess crossover.

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 08:51:14 EDT, Steve said

If we take a holiday,
Just one day out of life
it would be, it would be so right.
C'mon, lets celebrate.

On Monday, 18-Oct-99 00:08:14 EDT, dave said

NO! That would be appropriate for "Decade Day" or "Music Day."
Decade Day was not selected and I hesitate to refer to it as music.
I'd rather listen to Germans Banging on Pipes(kudos to Lou).
[that may be the title of the forthcoming Suburban Lourou's CD...]

Some what?

On Sunday, 17-Oct-99 16:54:58 EDT, Steve D. said

Cool, maybe we can play some early Madonna.
