My place is your place

You have been named supreme ruler of the universe. Your first order of business is creating and instituting a holiday or festival in your honor. What day of the year is your holiday? What special events will take place? Describe YOU DAY in as great a detail as you can muster: the special foods we’ll consume, the decorations we’ll use…everything.

Summer already has too many festivals and festivities, so my day is in February. It is a day in which we invite warmth into our houses by inviting people into our homes. Children decorate the windows with paint to celebrate the beauty of winter. There is hot chocolate all around. In the morning we bake cookies, which we can all enjoy together.

In the afternoon people go out to other people’s houses. It is like a pub crawl, but into the homes of the people. There are bands playing, crafts workshops, little shops and garage sales. It is a day in which you can meet your neighbours, not just the ones next door. Everyone contributes, whether it’s by opening your house or organising the events.

The day ends when evening falls, with a sugar and cinnamon pancake. Or two. We are all back in our own houses and can look back on a wonderful day.

This post is inspired by the daily prompt.
