Hi there!

Wanted to get this out there by the 1st day of the month.  For May, I wanted to go with a loose, almost-anything-goes theme, just to make it easy and hopefully increase participation.

To participate, all you have to do is take a photo of your Dal(s) celebrating one of the myriad different occasions that make up May--so May Day, Memorial Day, Cinco De Mayo, Children's Day, but also Star Wars Day, National Egg Month, National Hamburger Month, Pet Ownership Week, and so on.  I've included links to websites that list what kind of observances are held in the month of May for inspiration.  
 
Any other dolls are welcome to be in the photo(s), as long as a Dal is there too.  You may post as many photos as you have time for, and the deadline to get at least one entry in is May 31.  Post your photos directly to this topic.  Each photo counts as an entry into the drawing for a prize at the end of the month.  If you have any questions, please feel free to either post them here in the thread, or send me a PM.

Fun challenge!

I have a photo for May 4-- Star Wars Day!

(Full disclosure-- I've never actually watched any of the Star Wars movies, other than a bit of the original that my dad had on VHS when I was a kid... I remember thinking R2D2 was cute, but otherwise being disinterested. Now that I'm a sci-fi loving adult, I should probably watch them, but haven't yet... But I found this while cleaning out my aunt's house and Henri wanted to pose.)

Did you know that May is Wear Socks with Sandals Month? I didn't either, but according to Keen Footwear, it is. Here is Fiori showing off her socks and sandals:

Yay for Star Wars Day! Chewbacca looks thrilled to be in the photo with Henri. (I can't believe you haven't yet seen any Star Wars movies! I was raised on that series...one of my favorite childhood memories is waiting in line with my dad to see it Star Wars on opening day. My mom and sister were off getting lunch. Then when they came back in line, it was our turn to go eat.)

-------------------------------

I love Fiori's sassy pose showing off her cute socks!

So apparently May is also Egg Month... who knew? I took this as the Easter decorations were being put away.

I'd have thought he was a chocolate Chewie too Laughing
>gasp< no Star Wars movies?? Yes, you need to watch them!
It's depressing to me that quite a number of the May holidays are about gardening and flowers, and ... [usual rant about our cold climate] ... and now further, that wearing socks with sandals is something I do most of the time anyway because [rant about cold climate] !!!
These are all cute! Hope to get some time to do a few -- I made a list.
(Did we do May holidays somewhere, once before? because I think I remember shooting the minis in the dryer for Lost Sock Day, and something with Penny and a penny for Lucky Penny Day. Some remakes in order, perhaps!)

Yes, we definitely did, because I remember some of the holidays, too. I think it was a few years ago, because I definitely remember having a lot fewer Dals when I was taking those pictures! Some time we need to do a different month-- all these off-the-wall holidays are too funny. (Sorry they're not cooperating with Canada's climate, though, Alliecat.)

I bet every month has off-the-wall holidays! Some of those will be the most fun for doll photos.
(It's not all of Canada. The west coast gets spring in March. We're just in a crappy-climate corner, is all.)

I actually got a free calendar at my bank this year that is a holiday-a-day, all the random stuff. Apparently my birthday is brownie day-- yum!

Starting off with a couple of remakes then...
May 9 is Lost Sock Memorial Day (hey, I even posted it on the right day!)

May:  May Celebrations 47025412254_416fe31bb9
Ever have the laundry come back minus a sock, and then 2 laundries later it shows up but another one is missing...?
...yeah.


May 23 is Lucky Penny Day.  
It would be lucky to find one now, since Canada did away with pennies.
So here's, um... Penny!
May:  May Celebrations 47762720052_4492543036


And May 18 is No Dirty Dishes Day.
I can celebrate that.

Love your photos, Alliecat, especially the dishwasher one. Smile

It really is true that there are unique celebrations in every single month. Looks like April 26, my birthday, is also World Intellectual Property Day. dargosmydaddy, I would much rather have Brownie Day as my birthday.

Today is World Migratory Bird Day!

I don't have many realistic Dal-sized migrating birds. So Bergamot has to worry that this Canada Goose might have a nest near by and might attack!

It was a very crummy day weather-wise (I took the one outdoor photo last week), and I was feeling kind of crummy, too (round 2 of spring allergies Sad), so a good day for some dolly therapy!

I keep wanting to at least participate by getting a photo or two in. Sadly, I am overwhelmed with real life and it's keeping me from the dolls. I'm very happy to check this thread and see what your dolls are up to. Love all the fun photos--looking at these Dals having their moments in the spotlight is good for my mental health.

Keep 'um coming!

Very Happy

Maffick's turtle boots are so cute. She looks so happy with the burger and cookie; and that spray of flowers in the back look so pretty!
