Do you know any peculiar people? Are you peculiar yourself? Some of us are and we are proud of it! I mean, what is good about living a life where you look like and act like everyone else? That’s boring. And since there are apparently so many of us it is only fitting that we have a day of our own to celebrate our… differences!
Some people use disguises, the old watermelon on the head trick is one way to show your difference. And it is fairly practical, you have a snack to munch on during the day and you are recycling at the same time.
Others strive to be like historical people who were odd. In fact, most of the people who stood out in history were… peculiar. To say Einstein, Caesar and the Ringling Brothers were not odd is to not give them credit for what they accomplished!
Some show their oddness by what they do or what hobbies they have. Collecting snails might qualify… or maybe, dancing on popcorn… or maybe, giving singing lessons to monks! Whatever it is that makes you different than everyone else be proud of it!
Just don’t take it too far. Be un-ordinary, extraordinary, unusual, strange, odd, uncommon, intriguing, different, abnormal or quirky. Just don’t step on anybody else’s chance to be themselves.
How to celebrate – Find some way to show how unique you truly are. Pick up a new hobby. Be proud of who you are.
