You are so right Sweetie Pie (love the name). It's a great idea. I'm going to have to look into it.

I wonder if all these days were somewhat generated by advertising. I remeber when I worked for a small town newspaper there was always n advertising campaign centered around a holiday or any day that gave it a theme.

dahoglund, I do believe you are right. I think advertising and marketing is behind all of the holidays. But, they are fun.

Princessa, that's my kind of holiday. That and National Chocolate Day.

Delores, I'm wondering if I shouldn't do a hub about food holidays. They all sound so good to me. Scream Day should be a scream.

What crazy fun days. I think we need Scream Day more than once a year! At least I do! Fun hub.

Angela, I think a Scream Day per month would be great. We all need to let off a little steam.
