Celebrating the Small Ones

Celebrating the Small Ones

We all know the big holidays: Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, Fourth of July, Chanukah, and Valentine’s Day. The list goes on and on. Haven’t we celebrated these holidays enough? Hasn’t Thanksgiving received enough attention?! This year why not take some time out to celebrate the little guy? Throw an Arbor Day party, a Columbus Day celebration or a Flag Day bash!

At Paper Eskimo we encourage people to find an excuse to throw a party and make a memory. These smaller lesser known holidays give you a new opportunity to celebrate. They are unique and quirky. Throwing, say, an Arbor Day part also give you room to express your own awesome individual tastes. There aren’t a bunch of previous established themes and styles associated with the day so you are totally free to make up your own. So what is the deal with lesser known holidays anyway?

Arbor Day

Arbor days was born in Nebraska City, Nebraska on April 10th, 1872. On Arbor Day people are encouraged to embrace and celebrate nature. They are also asked to plant trees! You can host your Arbor Day party outside, serve good wholesome nature based food, and maybe even give away small individual seedlings as a party favor. Sounds like a great opportunity to celebrate life and do some good for the world!

Flag Day

Flag Day is celebrate don June 14th. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that Flag Day is all about celebrating our great American Flag! It may seem a little redundant with the Fourth of July coming up in a month but you can give Flag Day it is own unique twist. Make it not just about the history of our great nation, use it celebrate flags everywhere!

Columbus

Another (kind of) American themed celebration. Columbus days occurs on the second Monday of October and honors the discovering of America (or Cuba, Whatever) by Christopher Columbus. What a great theme for a party for a children’s party. They can learn all about the history of North America’s discovery and they can play cool adventure themed games that they will be sure to remember for years to come.
