The Holiday of the Soul
            If I could create a new holiday, I would create «The holiday of the Soul». During this day people will do whatever they want. They will relax and won`t go to work or school. They will read books, speak to each other, listen to music, give each other presents and have fun. They will think about their inner feelings, forgive their enemies and make new friends. People will celebrate it.

The Holiday of Kindness
            If I could create a new holiday, I would create «The holiday of Kindness». During this day people will make good deeds. They won`t go to work but make some good things: help each other, help old people, feed homeless animals, talk, praise someone, hug someone, forgive someone and so on.

The Day of Friendship
I think we must have a Day of Friendship. On this day all people must make up with their enemies. The whole day people must go for a walk, talk about something and   spend all the free time with friends.   To my mind, this holiday will be celebrated on 28 of January. I think it is a very good holiday which pulls together people and makes them kinder.

Laziness Day
 I’d like to introduce a new holiday. I think the best name for it is Laziness Day. We will celebrate it on the last Sunday of the year. This holiday is good, because it’s great, when we begin a new year with new forces. You can ask a question – “How to celebrate it?” Easily – on this day you will do only the following things – get relaxed, sleep and eat only the tastiest food.

Modern Gadgets Day
I think it will be good if someone creates a holiday of modern gadgets. I think all of us are using modern gadgets nowadays, and we couldn’t spend a day without them. That is why I think that we need to have a holiday in honor of it. In that day people have to go to the square of their city with their gadgets. And then they should switch them on, rotate displays to the sky and wait for the fireworks. In my opinion, it would look very beautiful from the helicopter.                                                                                         Anton, 7 “B”, School #4, Soligorsk, Belarus
                     
                                        
 Water Day
At first I’d like to tell you about a holiday witch I invented. I called it Water Days. It will be in summer from the 5th to the 6th of August. On this holiday you and your friends should go to the country and pour water on each other to whole day. On the next day everyone will be able to visit the water park. There will be big discounts. So, that is all I wanted to tell you about my new holiday. I think it will appeal to many people, because it is interesting and very entertaining.                                                                                       Dima 7 “B” school #4, Soligorsk, Belarus                                              

Sweets Day
I’d like to have a holiday of sweets. It is a holiday for all sweet teeth from all over the world and not only. On this holiday all people should eat their favorite sweets and parents mustn’t forbid children to eat many sweets on this day. I’d like to celebrate this holiday on the 31th of August to raise children’s mood. To my mind it would be a cool holiday especially for children.

Relaxing Day
I’d   like to tell you about Relaxing Day.  This holiday is celebrated on 27th of May. On this holiday people don’t go to school or to work. Usually they stay at home and relax, watch films, read books. You can also visit your friends. I think it is a good holiday, because people can relax from something.
