The Complete Book of Quilly Filly Sill Day
Quilly filly Silly Day is a day to
be silly. It is celebrated on May 1st. People from
New York and New Jersey are the only people in the
world who celebrate it. They made this day because
they thought it would be fun having a silly day.
Most people make a very funny face and eat baby
food. Some people do this: If you are a boy you
dress in girl clothing if you are a girl you dress
in boy clothing. When you are a kid you can ask
YOUR parents if it is all right to get in very fancy
clothing then play in the mud. Kids love this
holiday! Some parents kind of like this holiday.
People like spiking their hair and wearing funny
glasses. On this holiday there is no work (but you
can still work if you want to.) In all the public
pools, they throw in change. If it is a big pool it
can have $100.00 - $500.00. If it is a pretty big
pool it can have $50.00 - $100.00. If it is a small
pool, it can have$10.00 - $50.00. Last, if it is a
super small pool, it can have $1.00 - $10.00. When
the day is over, they sing a funny song. When the
song is over, they do one more funny thing and then
go to bed. That is the complete story of Quilly
Filly Silly Day!!
Rainbow Day is a very happy and
colorful holiday. The people who live in Color Town
celebrate it. What they do on Rainbow Day is they
visit Roy B. Biv. The R stands for red. The O
stands for orange. The Y stands for yellow. The G
stands for green. The B stands for blue. The I
stands for indigo and the V stands for violet. Roy
G. Biv is a person who lives on a rainbow and he is
the color king. We like him very much because he
knows all the different colors. This holiday
happens on July 17th. How they celebrate is by
familys getting together and having picnics at the
park. Each family member gets to pick a color of
the rainbow and they wear it. Everything has to be
that color except for the skin the face and the
hair. What I wore this year was yellow. My mom and
dad both wore red. Anna wore violet. Lisa wore
indigo. Edgar wore blue. Joey wore green. Freddy
wore orange and John wore red. What we had for the
picnic was turkey sandwiches, potato chips, carrots,
celery, cookies and water. Sometimes Roy G. Biv
comes and eats with us. He lives on Color Street on
a rainbow which is the most colorful place I have
been at. This holiday happens at Sunny park and
that is located right in the middle of Color Town.
I like this holiday very much. My favorite thing
about it is the colors that people wear.

Generational Day is celebrating
generations of family before us. All families are
to bring their children to their ancestors grave so
the children can pray and remember family before
them. Afterwards a feast is held.
Generational Day is held on June
first. That day schools and work are closed so
everyone can remember generations before them.
Generational day is a time of
peace and family. That day you are required to
visit at least one family member. With that family
member you play "pick a Grave". Here are the
instructions: The dad chooses the grave called "the
official grave". Then the child closes their eyes
and trys to pick the official grave from the pile.
If they get the official grave, they get a point.
The first person to 10 points wins, and then they
get to choose the official grave.
Parents sometimes have gifts for
their children. For example, a gift might be the

Once upon a time there was a girl
named Hope. Hope loved to write. One day she heard
about a holiday about writing. She loved it.
Writing day is celebrated on June
3rd. Everyone in the United States of America
celebrates it. Schools, stores, and jobs are closed
so people can write. Everyone goes to a library and
gets a piece of magic paper. The thing you are
writing about will come to life. If you write about
a puppy, the puppy you are writing will come to life
and you get to keep the thing you wrote about! You
have to write at least 15 stories. The stories have
to be at least 1 page long. If you are the first
one to finish writing 15 or more stories, you get a
blue ribbon that says, "Writing Star". When you go
out the door, a person will check if your stories

Fishmaka is on December
31st. It is a ritual to stop pollution in and
or on Atlantis. This holiday is only celebrated on
Atlantis. All living organisms in Atlantis celebrate.
Fishmaka is the
Atlantean version of a cross holiday between Christmas
and Hanukkah. At night, Fisha Claus comes to every house
as long as they have an Octora lit. Every family lights
an Octora (a frozen octopus with 8 candle holders). They
decorate a big coral tree (20 feet tall and 8 feet wide)
and place it in the middle of Atlantis.
If all the Octoras are
lit (by the way, the Octoras are placed on your own
personal coral tree), then it will stop pollution. Fisha
Claus comes and leaves a present for each candle lit
(each kid gets that many presents). It hardly ever works
because they need a water proof match or wick. They
prepare for this holiday all year in Atlantis.
Animal day is
celebrated May 1-3.
All people are
invited, and pets are too. School is closed. It is a
day to buy pets. If you already have one, buy another
one. The idea is so every animal has a loving home and
resident. It is going to be hard work, but try. It’s
simple, just go into one of the large pet stores in your
county, and once you get in, you get a stamp on your
hand, so you can buy a pet. You also can’t come out
empty handed, you have to buy at least one pet. It
would be nice if you bought two pets, but it’s up to
you. The way you get out is, you show them your stamp,
and your new pet. You also have to buy food. How would
an animal live without food? The first thing you do
when you get home is feed your new pet. Your pet also
has to live for a year. If your pet lives for ten
years, you don’t have to pay for the food for a year.
This holiday is
celebrated all over the world, because almost everyone
likes pets. All pets need a home and love. That’s why
it is celebrated all over the world. If you see an ugly
dog, it can be smart though. So the rule in the pet
store is “ Don’t judge a book by its cover”. You have
to follow it too. That’s why Animal Day is celebrated!

Zach, who always like weird stuff similar to the stuff
in the book.
Hiding-From-The-Teachers Day is funded by Heidi N. Seake.
He bought that children weren’t laughing a lot in his
day, so he decided to tickle them. But as soon as he
thought about tickling people across the world, he
forgot this at once. Instead, he thought he would make
a holiday. After dinner, he came back. He never knew
that there were snoops in every corner, but he felt
something was wrong. He finally decided that he was
being spied on. He wasn’t mad, but jealous. He asked
the snoops to come out and he discussed how children
could practice to be snoops too. After a while, the
snoop master said, “Well… hiding from your teachers?”
and that hit him. Hiding from your teachers make you
laugh and helps you be a snoop. From that day on,
everyone under age 18 hides from their teachers on
National Hiding-From-The-Teachers Days by trying to turn
nocturnal after school on January 9th.
Usually, they succeed and sneak to school at midnight.
The best hider becomes Principal and the 2nd
best hider becomes Vice Principal. Each person finds a
place to hide in secret. Then they wait. When they
hear footsteps, they quiet immediately. No teachers
know about this. The children laugh out loud (almost).
As they spy, they are practicing being snoops. Other
children are eating their lunch. Later, there will be
other people eating. That will be how school goes.
They go home to hide from their parents.
The meaning of this
is to promote children’s laughter ands help them with
their snoop skills.
Social Wild Life
Illustrated and written by Jason Weitze
Social Wild Life day
is from January 10th to January 14th.
A lot of people in New Jersey celebrate Social Wild
Life day’s. This event takes place outdoors.
This holiday happens
because long ago people didn’t have all the things we
do. They didn’t have all the technology as we do now
and they weren’t as fortunate as us. So, we have these
special few days called Social Wild Life day’s.
Everybody in New
Jersey celebrates by going outside for 3 days. We all
basically celebrate how fortunate we are to have people
who lived back then. The only difference is that we are
not going to be in the same situations as they were.
For example, they lived in houses and we stay in tents
or tree houses. The only thing that makes it hard is
staying away from wild animals and finding wood to make
their own fires. Over this three day weekend they hunt
for food, play cards, climb trees, play tag because it
is fun to d with all the trees, and make up their own
game. This Holidays symbols are a tree house, a tent,
and a fire in the winter.
Festival is a festival that talks about snowflakes.
There are more than 1,000 booths. There are booths that
you can make snowflakes, eat snowflake shaped food, and
much more! Everyone all over the world celebrates it.
They go to New York city to celebrate it. The price is
free. To get out, …you have to see at least 100
booths. The festival is so big, it spreads over the
whole entire New York city! About 1,000,000 come each
year. They come on December 23, and count down like on
New Year Eve. After the countdown, snowflake shaped
confetti is thrown into the air. Fireworks display in
the air and after the last firework comes down…the
Snowflake Festival begins!
Health Day is always
celebrated on the first day of summer vacation. Every
person has to celebrate. Health Day is a day to learn
about your body. It’s celebrated everywhere in the
world. This is how you celebrate. First, you get a
checklist and every time you visit a station, you learn
about a body part. People celebrate Health Day so they
will live longer. Did I tell you that you have to eat
healthy food on Health Day? At each station, they serve
food good for that body part. For example, the bones
station serves apples and milk. The body station serves
everything healthy! So next time you have to eat
veggies, remember, they are good for you!!

the World Month
Around the World Month is when you have one month to fly
around the world to at least three continents (flights
are free). Everyone from the world must participate in
the celebration. We celebrate this celebration every
three months. We do this because people learn more about
different continents that you have never been to. After
your trip, every country will be asked to fly to the
center of their own country. There will be a party. The
party is to share what you did. There will be a house.
Inside that house will be a voting booth. The voting
booth is when you vote on the continents you went to.
The continent with the most votes is the Continent of
the Month. If your continent is chosen, you get a free
ticket to go to your favorite place in the world. That
is what Around the World Month is.
National Hike Your Head Off Day
National-Hike-Your–Head-Off-Day is celebrated all around the

topped mountain in the area and then a parade takes
place on the top. The parade starts at
and ends at 11:00 am. This holiday is celebrated on
November 6th. On this day, people don’t have
to go to work or school if they don’t want to. When the
parade ends, all the floats, carts, etc. immediately
disappears. In a moment a table appears with a cake that
looks like the mountain they’re on. All the tree trunks
are made out of pieces of brownies. All the leaves are
made out of green jelly. All the rocks are made out of
gray icing. It is gigantic. People had to bring their
family’s favorite recipe. This holiday is celebrated
because of the first person to climb Mt. Everest. When
he came back down, he got a trophy the size of a truck,
shaped like Mt Everest.
Friends and people gather together to dance and listen to
cheerful songs, earn a present from each other, and also
find new friends. The pets also gather and earn presents
and find a lot of animal friends. This holiday is
celebrated February 1st, April 2nd,
July 3rd, and November 4th from
1:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Friends go the city and share a meal
or two together. Then they do a lot of fun things
together like walk around the city with their pets and
go to a lot of places together. They sometimes even
visit each others houses after the big party is over!
You celebrate this holiday to forgive the friends you
know for having bad times together and for people that
you met and the people you already know to promise that
forever they should be good or best friends. This very
special Holiday is usually celebrated in Times Square

Flying Sheep Day is celebrated on May 3rd. It
takes place on any farm in
The people who celebrate it are the kids and also the
sheep of New Jersey. The reason why they celebrate it is
for all the wool and cotton that they can use for
sweaters that can make us warm on the coldest days and
nights of winter. The kids and sheep play tag and
computer games like Kidpix Deluxe 3. The only way to
leave is if you play 8,888 seconds of tag and 9,999,999
seconds of eating popcorn or hay. You have to eat
9,999,999 bundles of fresh hay like cinnamon hay, sour
hay, sparkling hay, chocolate hay and apple hay. That’s
the holiday of Flying Sheep Day.
Mewtock Day is celebrated on
April 1-11. When this day comes, Dragery all around the
world have a party with lots of food and games. Dragerys
are mutated creatures that are half cat, half eagle, and
half lion. People also celebrate this event too. The
reason this day is celebrated is because Dragerys
thought their sun god Fockishy made summer. A fact that
happens on this day is that there would be a dance to
show the young ones how Fockishy made summer. The legend
for how Fockishy made summer goes like this: Once
there was only darkness and no one could see, but one
day a god was born and used all his power to make a warm
light which will only show in summer. Then, the
young ones would do some games like needle in a haystack
or tag, then they would have a big food bake with pie,
chicken, roast beef, and any other food the family
agrees on. Then when it's night time, the kids do a
trick on their parents and if it works they get a prize
and get to sleep in. One example of a trick is tying a
rope to your parents glasses and tie a loop around your
parents ankle but make sure they can step on the ground.
Then they will fall on their back once they have picked
up their glasses. If the kids do perfect tricks on all
ten nights, the have to try one on Fockishy's goblin. If
you catch him, he explodes into what your heart desires.
DOLPHIN NEW YEAR
Dolphin New Year is celebrated on January 22nd.
The dolphins will all gather at the
National Dolphin School, while some can earn or find a
lucky ticket to go to Dollin’s Funhouse. Every dolphin
has to celebrate and honor the brave, faithful, and
courage soldier dolphins who protected their world. The
elder dolphins tell stories to the younger ones about
the true dolphins and legends about them. They tell
about their ancestors too. The little dolphins will
play fun games like Soldier Tag, Hide-n-Seek, War, and
some other games. They can even make up their own
solder games. The tradition also has songs like, “God
and the Star Spangled Banner (dolphin style).” There is
an ice cream party, and if a dolphin gets the golden
disk, he/she could win the band of dolphins (and he/she)
an awesome FOOD FIGHT!
Killey, Butterfrea, and Angela (Dallia’s friends) get to go
for free to Dallia’s Fun House. They are workers.
That’s why kid workers are who they are. When you
leave, they will give you a goody bag, a cookie or
candy, and a special charm in a velvet bag as when you
wear it in a chain (for boys) or a necklace (for girls),
it will give you good luck. Also, when you are leaving,
you will learn a fact about dolphins. For example:
“Killer whales are a type of dolphin.” Your fact will
be typed up on a short piece of paper.
The meaning of this holiday is making yourself feel special,
honoring loved ones, telling the truth, remembering
heroes, and a time to celebrate any of your traditions!
School is even off on this day! Even you can celebrate
Dolphin New Year!
Ceci Day is a day mostly known across the nation. It is
celebrated five (5) times a year. It is celebrated on
January 10th, February 20th, March
31st, April 6th, and June 1st.
Every Japanese, Chinese, American, and European person
and families must participate in Hillsborough/North
Branch Public Library in of course,
Jersey. The people must buy gifts for everyone who
comes and should buy as many gifts as possible. And
when you get a gift, you accept it. All people have to
open their presents AT HOME ONLY!! They are also given
a gift by the hosts as the librarians. The meaning of
this celebration is to celebrate the existence to live
and have a joyful life living. Because there’s a
library, you must buy books. Easy, medium, hard,
pop-ups, or even picture books are the kind you can
buy. But if every person speaks a different language,
the librarian picks people who can translate the words.
It is one of the nation’s favorite holidays.
YOUR FAVORITE WATCH DAY
Wear Your Favorite Watch Day is celebrated on December 16th.
My family is the only family that celebrates it. We
wear our favorite watches and then we go into the family
room and we eat, talk, and do everything there. We
celebrate the holiday so we can see our family member
watches. We also celebrate it so we can be together and
we don’t have school or work. If we have two favorite
watches, we wear both of them. We do not use
electricity on this day. We can play checkers, but not
use electricity. We use candles at night and we go to
midnight. Sometimes we stay up late. We cook the day
before this day so we have enough food. We eat
sandwiches and cookies. We play with dolls and things
like that. We first do work and then we play. We give
watches to other people, but the watches have to be
The Mid-Summer Festival is very important to fairies. It is
celebrated on July 10th, the day with the
most sun. All who believe in fairies, including
fairies, have a special ball! People dress up as
fairies and pixies. They celebrate at a
Palace, decorated with butterflies hanging from the
ceiling and on the wall. Remote control fairy dolls fly
around sprinkling sparkly pixie dust everywhere!
Fairies celebrate at the King and Queen Fairy’s castle.
This holiday’s purpose is to celebrate light. I like
this holiday because I love fairies, unicorns,
butterflies, and dressing up like fairies.
Video Game Day is celebrated on February 27th.
Kids stay home from school to play their favorite video
games without anyone to stop them. Luckily on this
holiday, any kid that does not have one, will be given
on by the mayor. Any kids that do not like them will be
home schooled. After the mayor gives out all video game
systems, he goes from house to house delivering video
games to every kid who wants one. He also gives $25.00
to every house. During this day, school staff waits
3:00 p.m. and the parade starts much like the Macy’s Day parade, but
has floats of video game characters like Mario. There
are also video game booths where kids can use their
$25.00 to buy games. They also sell Mario shaped
hamburgers since the parade goes until dinner. During
this parade, kids who are being home schooled gets
presents from Manic Dude. The reason people celebrate
this holiday is so that kids who love video games can
play them. Also, so that kids can receive video games
and video game systems without wasting money. The true
meaning is just to play your favorite video games!
