Big Change. Last Minute.

By Beth Beutler
1     Have you ever heard of the Festival of Enormous Changes at the Last Minute? Probably not. It's another one of those wacky holidays that someone made up to fit a particular day of the year. How fun, though, might it be?
 
2     What do you think this type of "festival" commemorates? Take a look at the date to which it is assigned- December 30. Although December 30 is not the last day of the year, it is close. What holiday will happen soon? That's right--New Year's Day.
 
3     The end of December and beginning of January seem to be a time when people are thinking about change. It's a very popular time to make what is called a "resolution," which is a decision to make a change or improvement in one's life. So perhaps the Festival of Enormous Changes at the Last Minute makes fun of New Year's Day and New Year's resolutions. Maybe by the end of a year, people look back and realize the things that they did not get done. Therefore, they may do something on the near-to-last day of the year to feel like they at least made an attempt.
