New Year's Day

A red-letter day is a special day. Some red-letter days, like Christmas, New Year’s Day and Canada Day, are official holidays in Canada. Others, like Halloween and Valentine’s Day are unofficial. We use the expression “red-letter day” because, in the past, important days were written in red on calendars.

Did you know that there is something special to celebrate every day of the year? Today’s a new day! Make it special!

There are days like Pizza Day (February 9) and Banana Split Day (August 25), to celebrate food. Days like Polar Bear Day (February 27) and Pet Day (April 11) are about animals. And days like Dance Like a Chicken Day (May 14) will surely make you laugh.

red-letter day: (expression) a special day or a day you will always remember.

Many unofficial red-letter days are a bit wacky and just for fun but some are very serious and raise awareness. Two examples are Earth Day (April 22) and National Child Day (November 20).

official holidays: (plural noun) days of celebration when most people do not work. wacky: (adjective) crazy; bizarre.

There’s probably a red-letter day to celebrate almost anything you can imagine. If not, you can invent one! In fact, there’s a day for that, too! March 26 is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day!

raise awareness: (expression) make people think. to make up: (verb) to invent.

Josh’s mom has proclaimed July 9 Turn It Off Day! This is her way to get her kids, aged 10, 13 and 15 to put away their electronic devices for 24 hours. She chose July 9 because July 8 is Video Games Day!

Kinsley is 3 years old. She is a very picky eater, but she absolutely loves peas! She puts them in her cereal for breakfast. She likes them with fruit for a snack. And, her latest? She asked her grandmother to put peas on her ice cream! “What? A chocolate sundae with peas? You’re joking! Are you sure you’re going to eat it? “Yes, Grandma! I promise!” And she did!

So, now March 15 is “PPP Day” – Please Pass the Peas Day! On this day, celebrate by adding that little round green vegetable to everything you eat! Enjoy! Chapter 2 – Red-Lette r Days

A Day to Celebrate

New Year's Day

A red-letter day is a special day. Some red-letter days, like Christmas, New Year’s Day and Canada Day, are official holidays in Canada. Others, like Halloween and Valentine’s Day are unofficial. We use the expression “red-letter day” because, in the past, important days were written in red on calendars. Did you know that there is something special to celebrate every day of the year? There are days like Pizza Day (February 9) and Banana Split Day (August 25), to celebrate food. Days like Polar Bear Day (February 27) and Pet Day (April 11) are about animals.

Many unofficial red-letter days are a bit wacky and just for fun, but some are very serious and raise awareness. Two examples are Earth Day (April 22) and National Child Day (November 20). There’s probably a red-letter day to celebrate almost anything you can imagine. If not, you can invent one! In fact, there’s a day for that, too! March 26 is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day!

See page 111.

• Write the month before the day: Examples:   January 22 – March 11 – September 9, 2010. • When only the month and the day are given, either cardinal or ordinal numbers may be used: Examples:   May 16 or May 16th; March 2 or March 2nd. • If the year is given, do not use ordinal numbers: Example:   October 3, 1999.

Practice Exercise 1. What is the date today? 2. When is your birthday? 3. Look at page 15. Use ordinal numbers to write the dates we celebrate: a) Hug a Teddy Bear Day: b) International Day of Peace:

Ordinal Numbers 1st = first 2nd = second 3rd = third 4th = fourth

Here are three made-up holidays.

I would like to proclaim July 22 Wash and Cuddle a Baby Elephant Day for my friend Helen. Helen is passionate about animals. On this day, in 2017, she got the chance to help bathe and hug a baby elephant while visiting Malaysia. “It was fabulous,” she said. “It was an experience I will never forget!”

STRATEGY. Use the illustrations to help you understand the texts.

Unfortunately, most of us will never have the oppor­tunity to wash or cuddle a baby elephant, but we can celebrate this day by learning about this amazing animal.

“Young people are obsessed with video games and cellphones!” she said. “This gets them to do other things, like reading or playing sports. I wish there could be a day like this every week!”

made-up: (adjective) invented. to cuddle: (verb) to hold close in your arms. devices: (plural noun) something electronic like a cellphone or video-game system.

Josh’s mom has proclaimed July 9 Turn It Off Day! This is her way to get her kids, aged 10, 13 and 15 to put away their electronic devices for 24 hours. She chose July 9 because July 8 is Video Games Day!

3

Have you ever eaten a peanut butter and pea sandwich? Or perhaps a hotdog with ketchup and peas? Kinsley is 3 years old. She is a very picky eater, but she absolutely loves peas! She puts them in her cereal for breakfast. She likes them with fruit for a snack. And, her latest? She asked her grandmother to put peas on her ice cream! “What? A chocolate sundae with peas? You’re joking! Are you sure you’re going to eat it?

Mmmm! Yummy!

“Yes, Grandma! I promise!” And she did! So, now March 15 is “PPP Day” – Please Pass the Peas Day! On this day, celebrate by adding that little round green vegetable to everything you eat! Enjoy!
