April 26th Alien Day
You might think this day is about the little green men from Mars but you’d be wrong. Today is about Ridley Scott’s planet LV-426 in the movie “Alien”, a 1979 20th Century Fox release. We all probably remember it best for that Alien that popped out of people’s chests as though they were giving birth. It is what it is and like most series, it got less believable over the many remakes but the original is still a fan favorite.
How to celebrate – Watch an “Alien” movie. Visit planet LV-426. Pretend like you are an astronaut.
November 18th National Princess Day
Movies have had a lasting effect on our society. They have made us laugh and cry, fighting mad and fearful, curious and astounded. So why then, shouldn’t they make some of us Princess’ as well! That is just what “The Swan Princess”, released on November 18th, 1994, did for all those would be Princesses. Seldon Young, the producer of “The Swan Princess” believes all little girls, and big girls, deserve to be a Princess at least once in their lives. And so National Princess Day was formed, on the day the movie was released. After all, we once had “Queen For A Day” so why not “Princess For A Day”?
How to celebrate – Treat your daughter, wife or sister as a Princess today. Form her royal court and bow to her every desire today. (It’s only for one day) Realize that when you make your daughter Princess that makes you King (Or Queen) so hey, you get a promotion as well!
