Joke Contest — New Holidays

The theme for this month’s contest is New Holidays.

New Joke Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).

New Cartoon Caption Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).  The next Cartoon Caption Contest will be announced March 1, 2011.

Your challenge this month is to create a New Holiday or change a Current Holiday.  You might tell us how the new holiday is to be celebrated.

Here are some examples:

Ex-Day where you give flowers to your Ex.  This is a two-day holiday in Texas, since that’s where all the Ex’s live.

Stranger’s Day.  Give gifts to people you’ve never met.  Spend the day visiting friends while in disguise.

Change Labor Day to the one day per year when people work.  All other days of the year will be holidays.  Congress will borrow money to pay for the hand-baskets.

Create as many lines as you can.  Submit your best lines with your name, city, state, country.  Your first three lines will be considered for Top-Three recognition.  Lines submitted beyond your first three will be eligible for Honorable Mention.  Please submit your entries by February 15, 2011.  Send them to
