you're looking for something to do today then maybe you should show
your appreciate to Z-named people, because today is Z Day!
may not have known it was a holiday but it is and we should all
celebrate it together. Let's get right into celebrating Z Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Not all holidays are as widespread as others but even the
of holidays have a reason for the celebration. I've read about other "Z
Days" that are unrelated to this specific holiday so I thought it would
be better if I explained things first. Ah yes the Z, or Zed
some call it, the twenty sixth letter of our modern Latin alphabet. The
caboose to our letter train. What would we do without you?
football players would have to ig and ag to avoid being tackled. When
we're hungry we might opt for a slice of pia. And when we wanted to
take a nap, we'd catch some ______. Sounds pretty odd doesn't it?
we need this special letter and I'm not really sure about the origins
of this holiday but most people with names that start with a Z end up
being last, each and every day of the year, in alphabetical terms
anyway. So it only seems right to show your appreciation to
rare folks, and other random objects, with Z-names. Don't
you A-named people, you will get your first class selection privileges
back tomorrow and for the rest of the year. Be nice and let others have
a turn for once ;). Yes it's time to celebrate all things Z
So how are you going to celebrate this holiday? Well, if you
have any opportunities to put things in alphabetical order then go
ahead and pop the Z's up front. This would be a simple task if you were
something like a school teacher. Be a rebel and go for
alphabetical order if you want! Kids love opposite days like this.
But maybe you don't really have a chance to put things in
alphabetical order so you could draw some pictures of random Z-named
things. Get really abstract and creative with your Z art and put it
somewhere for the world to see. Or maybe you work with
with a Z name and could treat them extra special today. Take your Z
buddy out to lunch or help them out with their work today.
you could even buy something that starts with a Z like a Zenith watch
or a Zune. There are plenty of different products out there that start
with a Z! You could even go to a zoo if it's open and check
the zebras. Now if only they'd let you ride one... Or you
catch your favorite zombie flick and try not to get the hunger for
brains yourself. Heck, dress up as a zombie and give hugs to
people with Z names! Or if you're really crazy you could
Z on your body and celebrate for the rest of your life! That would be
the ultimate way to show your appreciation for this wonderful letter.
It's all up to you really; be creative! Show your
people and things that may not feel as loved because they're sporting
an uncommon letter in their name.
