I missed my own holiday! Can you believe that? Last year, I declared January 9th to be national “Lay Down Your Wand Day”. It was inspired by my first novel, Searching for My Wand, and the idea behind it was to take a day when you did whatever you wanted. It’s meant to be a day when instead of granting everyone else’s wishes, you just pamper yourself. But, I missed it, and because I missed it, you probably missed it, too. After all, it hasn’t exactly caught on, at least not yet.
I say next year, we prepare for it. Perhaps we’ll even have a parade. We can dress up as good witches and carry our wands before ceremoniously laying them down. In the meantime, happy belated “Lay Down Your Wand Day”.
