The challenge this time? Simple. Using about 250 words, invent a new holiday by answering these questions:
When does the holiday occur?
What does this new holiday celebrate?
Why does it celebrate what it is does?
How ought people celebrate the holiday?
I look forward to your responses, which are due before Monday, 11 October. Save your submission as as Gauntlet 5 [Insert Your Name Here]. For example, my file would be named Gauntlet 5 Mr Chance. Email your response to the challenge to mchance at theregisschool dot org.
