Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day
Embrace your unique talent and celebrate it, no matter how quirky it is on November 24 or Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day.
Sing out loud from the rooftops, dance on the streets, paint a picture, jump through hoops or wiggle your nose. Our unique talents are some of the things that make us who we are and in many cases define our personalities and our outlook to life.
This unofficial holiday of unknown origins encourages people to wholeheartedly accept their special talent and showcase it to the world.
How to Celebrate?
This one's easy. Whether you sing, dance, juggle, look like a celebrity or can do headstands for an hour while singing the national anthem and balancing a basketball on your feet, do everything in your power to let the world know about your unique talent. Here are some ways how:
- Host a talent show at work or among your friends and give them a chance to show off their skills.
- Make a video of you performing your talent and post it on a video sharing website - share your unique talent with the world.
