The first fifty or so 2012 Wondermark Calendars have already been spoken for!
I’m finishing up the verses now and hope to start printing the pages next week. It’s gonna be a beauty, I can tell you that right now.
But since the design’s not quite finalized yet, there’s still a chance to make some last-minute additions. So in the comments, suggest a holiday that you’d like to see on the 2012 Calendar. I’ll pick my favorite few from each month, and canonize them so that everyone who picks up one of the calendars will be sure to celebrate it in the coming year.
The calendars already include all the standard U.S. and Canadian calendar holidays, plus Wondermark’s birthday (April 25) and my own (September 21). Your suggested holidays should not:
- be the same date as any existing holiday (there isn’t space to print duplicate text on given days)
- be just your own birthday or anniversary or something
- be longer than a couple words
- be real
- Be short
- Be funny
- Include a brief explanation that I’ll archive here on the site for people to consult throughout the year.
“January 5, Poop-on-Cats-Day. This is when everybody gets back at their cats by holding them down and pooping on them. Traditionally followed by January 6, Wash-Your-Cats-Day, and January 7, Hospital Day.”
Except not that exactly BECAUSE NOW THAT’S TAKEN.
Leave yours in the comments! UPDATE: Okay that’s it for now! I’ll post a roundup of my favorites soon. Thanks for all the great suggestions.
