MAY 2011 CHALLENGE - AWARENESS & HOLIDAY SCAVENGER HUNT

Post Fri Apr 29, 2011 3:30 am


MAY is a month full of International Awareness holidays. If you go online and look around, you will find that your country has dozens of these "holidays" for Awareness.

I find it funny that we have these holidays to encourage Awareness, yet none of us is really Aware that the holiday exists. LOL.

I gathered an extensive list of Awareness hoidays for another Scavenger Hunt. We can help spread the word about these observances and help encourage the world to be more sensitive and aware.

RULES FOR THE CHALLENGE -

1. Your subjects can be holidays from this calender. When you open it, scroll down to find a complete list. Go here and scroll down http://members.shaw.ca/high5/02cal.html OR you can use the list below or go back and forth if you like. Edit - Here is another website to try but the list is much shorter http://www.blendradioandtv.com/Holidays ... /index.htm

2. Fresh shots taken in MAY 2011 only. Post 31 photos, each one portraying a Holiday/Observance Day.

3. You can post in the order of your choice or you can go along with the Calendar (more difficult challenge)

4. Please try to visit and comment on most of the entries by our Challenge-mates.

5. Have FUN!!!!

Thanks Lynn - I think I'll be following off this list and not the website. I think it's a grand idea.

Lumpy rug day! Really? :-) Well, this challenge sounds like a lot of fun and very interesting too, as I had no idea there were so many awareness days.

Thank you so much, Lynn,
this is a great idea and a very challenging challenge for me, so I'll give it a try even though I know I will be hard working this month.
Let's be aware :-)
