Sillidays: National Skyscraper Day


 One of my most favorite things ever is celebrating “unofficial” holidays. I’m sure by now you all are well acquainted with Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th, for those who arrrrren’t sure! =0P). Well, there are websites full of these “real fake” holidays, which range from National Waffle Day (August 24th) to Elephant Appreciation Day (September 22nd).

In the spirit of good ol’ fun, I’ll be making these “Silliday” (aka Silly Day) illustrations in celebration of some of these random days. However, the frequency of these illustrations will be based on you! I will start with one fun “Silliday” illustration celebration per week. If you like it, share it! The more ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ these posts get, the more frequently these holidays will be posted.

As a former New Yorker, I felt that this was a terrific fun holiday to celebrate. My favorite skyscrapers were, without a doubt, the World Trade Center Towers. It still feels strange crossing the Verrazano Narrows Bridge or seeing the Manhattan skyline from another vantage point and not seeing the gigantic Twin Towers proudly standing tall. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the fact that they’re forever gone. So National Skyscraper Day makes me a tad nostalgic for the Empire State, and the people in it.

What does National Skyscraper Day mean to you? What is your favorite skyscraper? Share your thoughts!


For the month of September, Friendship Month here on Playing Grown-Ups, I will be posting on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Stay ‘tooned tomorrow for a brand new post!
