Celebrate the Unusual

Crazy Hats

Creativity (n): the ability to use the imagination to develop new and original ideas or things, especially in an artistic context.

Creativity comes in many forms and one of the things that I love the most is the bizarre and unique holidays that literally fill every day of the year. Everyone knows about, if not celebrates, the common holidays throughout the year but tell me….who has celebrated Toothache Day or Tell a Fairy Tale Day?

What I love about all the crazy and unique days you can celebrate is that it opens up a whole new world of things to get together and enjoy with family, friends and co-workers. Wondering what kind of fun things you could be celebrating? Here are a few examples:

*Cherry Pie Day – who wouldn’t love to eat a slice of pie with friends or co-workers just because?

*Swap Ideas Day – how about arranging a party where the whole focus is swapping creative ideas with your friends?

*No Housework Day – I don’t know about you but I think everyone should celebrate this day.

*National Goof Off Day – Oh yeah, this sounds like a lot of fun

Another thing that I like about these unusual holidays is it also gives people in sales and marketing fun ways to touch base with their clientele. For example, instead of giving notepads, magnets or pens with your contact information on them when you drop by a client’s why not try something like giving a small bag of herbs and spices with a note attached that says “ABC Company can SPICE up your business” and then give it to your clients on August 29th which is national “More herbs, Less salt” Day. *Make sure you notate somewhere that the date correlates with the Holiday or your clients may not understand why you are giving them such a unique calling card.

At PEC we think that life is meant to be fun, exciting and creative.
