Friday, May 16, is Wear Purple for Peace Day! I’ll be covered from head to toe in varying degrees of purple clothing. Will you? Though the origin of the day is unknown (at least, unknown as far as I can tell), Holiday Insights says:
The goal of Wear Purple for Peace Day is to make the world a peaceful place and, of course, encourage alien species to make contact with earth.
Do you want to meet aliens for another planet? Me, too! So, lets all wear purple for peace today.
Aliens from another planet? Who knew? Reminds me of that scene in Independence Day.
Well, hopefully not that kind of alien. Anyway, if you haven’t had a chance to throw on that purple scarf or tie today, you can still celebrate with a few atmosphere changes. First, set the mood with the Aqua Mood Light. It comes equipped with thirteen different colors and a remote control that allows you to choose which color your prefer, including effects. (Today, we’re obviously going with something on the cooler, darker end of the color spectrum.) Just drop the waterproof LED light into a fish tank, vase of flowers, or even your pool for instant atmosphere. Requires three AAA batteries (not included).
If you can’t handle all-around lighting or you want to add another dimension to your lavender ambiance, pull out your trusty Plasma 360 Tesla ball and wow your friends with science! (Or, y’know, you can blind ’em.) Careful, though; it’s made of glass and most definitely breakable.
Now, if you’re actually having an event for Wear Purple For Peace Day (waiting for aliens to arrive, maybe?), people are going to get thirsty. When they get thirsty, they’ll have drinks, and when they have drinks, they’re going to need coasters. Specifically, these great purple Block Target Coasters, of course. They come in sets of four with an included stainless steel holder for when they’re not being used for, y’know, thirsty people’s drinks.
Finally, capture the moment and all your purple-wearing friends on camera (or maybe any aliens who arrive!) with the great Fisheye One Purple Camera. Equipped with a 170-degree wide-angle lens and a built in electronic flash, this special camera uses regular 35mm film, so load it up and start snapping away!
Is anyone else waiting for aliens by getting to the spirit and decking their homes and themselves all in purple on Friday? Let me know in the comments!
