Every March 5th, my dad celebrates the anniversary of the day he got his first pair of glasses. It's become an important holiday, and one that I feel bad about missing, especially when it is a milestone year! Often the celebration includes my mother baking a cake and putting an old pair of my dad's glasses on top of the cake (after cleaning them thoroughly!) and his employees presenting him with gag gifts and cards. This year I am in Iceland and my parents are in Arizona, but I thought of him on his special day and made him a little something. Happy Glasses Day, Mike Sevig! May your celebration be a spectacle for your spectacles!
Have you or anyone you know made up a holiday to celebrate every year? If not, why don't you? It is never too late to start a new tradition, no matter how strange a tradition it might be!
