When we were walking home from the BIG HOCKEY GAME last weekend Mike and I came up with this idea for a National Holiday called Hockey Day! The idea has evolved into a Provincial Holiday called Glowing Hearts Day to honour and remember our great success, pride and patriotism during our Olympic Games.
So I started an online petition (you can see it by clicking HERE) and sent it out at the end of the workday yesterday. It's still before work hours this morning and already we have 128 signatures. I've sent it to Vancouver bloggers, media, MLA's and so on, and I'm hoping it "goes viral". It's a fun experiment unto itself!
Many people in BC have lobbied long and hard for a holiday in February, so we actually want this holiday to be approved, and are recommending we harmonize it with other provinces Family Day.
The nicest part of this exercise is seeing people's wonderful comments when they sign the petition:
