Are you ready for the biggest, largest, giganticest holiday of the year? No, we’re not talking Flag Day. June 1 is International Dinosaur Day!
It is true: The third Tuesday in May is also International Dinosaur Day. This year, that would be May 19, 2020. But we’ve made our choice. We prefer the sauropod-like immobility of June 1, because it never moves year-after-year. And that makes it is easier for our dinosaur-size brains to remember to celebrate.
So, how will you celebrate June 1?
For many, the first time we think of celebrating dinosaurs is when we host our child’s birthday party. And we support that – it is, after all, the gateway party for dinosaur enthusiasts. It is almost inevitable that if you have a 3-to-7 year-old boy, you’ll be hosting a dinosaur party at some point. (And attending many more!) Of course, right now, most of us are not attending any parties at all. Still, we have collected several great ideas for young dinosaur enthusiasts, parties or no parties! And let’s face it – after several months at home, any new idea for entertaining the kids is absolutely essential!
However, it goes without saying that the people who celebrate dinosaurs the best are adults, who don’t necessarily need a reason to celebrate dinosaurs – they just do!
Regardless if you are a kid or adult, here’s one great way to celebrate International Dinosaur Day. Place some AtmosFX Window Projection Material in your front window and project Dinosaur Encounter Digital Decoration onto it. It sends a signal to fellow dinophiles that June 1 is a very BIG day.
Of course, we know you all will find other clever ways to celebrate June 1. For instance, AtmosFAN Lyle Coram turned the tables on his family and projected Dinosaur Encounter into his house, with playfully terrifying results.
In fact, it was this video that, years later, inspired another AtmosFAN Amanda Mullarkey. She is of the opinion that everything is better when a dinosaur is included. With that in mind, she put together a Christmas projection display for her home that – what else?! – included dinosaurs!
And of course, we’ll never stop loving the photo of AtmosFAN Lisa Boggs who, when her husband returned home from overseas deployment, met him on the tarmac in a dinosaur suit!
All to say, there is no correct way to celebrate International Dinosaur Day. And that even includes those of you who prefer to celebrate it on Christmas, the third Tuesday of May, or any other day! Just make sure you do so again on June 1. That, itself, proves how ginormous International Dinosaur Day is – you get to celebrate it as often as you want!
