If you’ve ever woken up in the morning and thought, It’s not fair! I shouldn’t have to go to school today, then this post is for you. These are five days of the year that we agree should be all yours.
Nobody should have to go to school on their birthday! If yours falls during the summer break, then pick a day during the school year to make up for it. Take the whole day to do whatever you want to do, whether it’s listening to “Roar” on repeat or watching back-to-back episodes of “Adventure Time.” Don’t forget to have an extra piece of cake!
Spring Has Sprung Day
After a long winter of layering on coats, scarves, hats, and gloves, that first 70-degree day of spring feels like a miracle. Warm sun on your skin, baseballs waiting to be thrown, bicycles ready to be ridden—who can go to school on a day like that? Think of it as the reverse-snow day: when the thermometer hits 70, it’s a holiday!
Braces Coming Off Day
Having braces can be a drag. So when you finally reach that day when you get them taken off, it’s time for a celebration! Celebrate the date every year by eating peanut butter sandwiches and popcorn, or any food that used to get caught in your braces.
I Give Up, You Can Have a Pet Day
This holiday marks the date when your mom or dad finally said yes and let you have the cat, dog, hamster, or snake you begged for. Give your pet a little extra attention today and don’t forget to say thank you to your parents for bringing it into your life!
Star Power Day
This one’s all about your favorite band, book, or movie. As if you can be expected to sit still in school when One Direction or Taylor Swift is in town for a concert, or focus on your homework on the day the new “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” book comes out! Instead of spending the day fidgeting in your seat, you can celebrate with a Spiderman movie marathon or a warm-up karaoke party before the big event.
