Daily Prompt: Festivus for the Rest of Us
by Krista on December 15, 2013
You have been named supreme ruler of the universe. Your first order of business is creating and instituting a holiday or festival in your honor. What day of the year is your holiday? What special events will take place? Describe YOU DAY in as great a detail as you can muster: the special foods we’ll consume, the decorations we’ll use…everything.
Supreme Ruler of the Universe! Wow! That’s a giant promotion. As my first order of business, I will create a Festival in my honor. It will be called ‘The Supreme Festival of the Universe’. I do love a good festival.
Instead of just one day, my festival would be a week, (7 days), of delightful fun, good food, learning, and socializing. It will be similar to a Renaissance Faire, but would include, not one, but all cultures who wish to participate. Yes, even the Martians form Mars are invited.
Even though Fall is my personal favorite season, this festival would have to be held during the first days of spring; a time after everyone/everything has been cooped-up for the winter, some barely surviving. I’m assuming that as Supreme Ruler of the Universe, I will have control of the weather. The week of my festival would be held the first week of May and the whole week will be sunny, with highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s everywhere in the Universe.
Each culture participating, will have a space to lecture about their culture, show off skills of their culture, furnish the best foods of their culture, and decorate their space with items from their culture. All attending the festival will only be allowed to have fun; no violence or intended harm are allowed. If anyone dares to disrupt the festival with violence, they will immediately be zapped from the universe.
Peace, Love, and Goodwill will reign under my rule.
