No you aren’t imagining things I did just say Happy Valentines Day in April but this Valentines day is different. Firstly it’s in April, secondly it is Happy Boys Valentines day and thirdly it came about thanks to Maxx.

So what is Happy Boys Valentines Day? Well even though we celebrated it yesterday I’m still not 100% sure. I think it is to celebrate Happy Boys and just has Valentine’s Day added on to the end but I could be wrong! What goes on in the mind of a 4 year old is a mystery.

Happy Boys Valentine’s Day came about when it was Valentines Day and Maxx was a little bit upset that he didn’t get any presents to celebrate so he kept asking when is Happy Boys Valentines Day. After trying to explain there isn’t such a day and Maxx getting very frustrated at how unfair this was his mum told him it was soon! Much to my amusement, I couldn’t wait to see what Happy Boys Valentines Day was…
Well Happy Boys Valentine’s Day has been a lot of fun we put up some banners gave Maxx some cards (Thankfully he can’t read properly yet) and he got a couple of presents. He got a very cool ant farm which I had a lot of fun making we are just lacking the ants. All in all it was just a very fun day which we used to celebrate Maxx and he loved it.

I don’t see anything wrong with having fun and encouraging a child’s creativity and imagination, after all it was a day full of fun and laughter. I just hope he doesn’t make up any more holidays this year or we might have to cancel Christmas!

Has your child ever made up a new holiday? Did you celebrate it?
