Every day, we do things because we have to - from the time the alarm goes off, there are appointments to make and responsibilities to handle. But on August 27, we are given a rare invitation to throw off the constraints of schedule and routine, and instead, have a day filled with "why not?"

He continued that "pomp and parade, shows, games, sports, bells, bonfires, and illuminations" should be part of that day's celebrations "from this time forward forever more."
