1. Choose What You Want To Celebrate

It can be absolutely anything! Did you have a great bagel today? Celebrate Bagels! Since every day presents something to celebrate, we chose “everything” as the subject of our holiday!
2. Name Your Holiday
Name your holiday after what you’re celebrating! We chose to celebrate everything, so our holiday is called Everything Day!
3. Choose How You’re Going To Celebrate

This is where you can get creative with your holiday. Do you celebrate by doing a silly dance? Maybe you make cards to give to loved ones. What if you did both? What are the decorations like? It’s entirely up to you! On Everything Day, we announce something we’re grateful for every day and we do a silly dance — we do this all day.
4. Choose A Traditional Holiday Food
No holiday is complete without a traditional food. With that in mind, you can choose anything you want! We love grilled cheese sandwiches, so we picked grilled cheese as our traditional Everything Day food.
5. Make Up Songs
You can make up your own songs to help celebrate your holiday! They can be silly or sentimental. If you don’t want to make up a song, you can choose some songs and make a playlist of songs that you already love!

Does your holiday have characters? For Everything Day, we made up Everyday Earl and the Grilled Cheese Gang. Everyday Earl is a mechanic who wears blue coveralls and a green bandana. Everyday Earl loves to dance and party, and he likes to shout “Every Day” before bursting into dance. The Grilled Cheese Gang are a group of misfits who will steal your cheese if you go to bed on Everything Day without announcing your favorite cheese to have in a grilled cheese sandwich.
7. Choose a Date
Now that you have a new holiday to celebrate, you have to pick a day to celebrate it! Is it one day, or is it a whole week? It’s entirely up to you!
8. Make A “How To Celebrate” Guide

Until your new holiday becomes a global phenomenon with years of tradition, you’ll likely have to tell people how to celebrate it. Make yourself a handy guide to explain your holiday to newcomers.
9. Invite Your Friends
Invite your friends and family to celebrate with you! Holidays are meant to bring people together in celebration!
Now that you have everything you need to make up your own holiday, let us know how yours comes out @CAMPSTORES on Instagram! Happy Everything Day!
