National Short Film Day:
We have been living in a pandemic for over nine months now. This has affected all our sources of entertainment. But films and television shows have kept us afloat. On December 28, celebrate National Short Film Day. This day also commemorates the art of motion pictures and short packages of fun. Short films for a very long time now have entertained the public at large. We today look into its history and understand how you can celebrate it.
The invention of Cinema was one of the greatest accomplishments of man. He started from a no sound production to today the inclusion of VFX. There has been a humongous improvement in this field of art. The journey started when Edison and Dickson created the ‘Peephole Device’ in 1892. The audience largely called it the Kinetoscope. Moreover, only four years before that, in 1888 the first short film was created. It was 2.11 seconds long. Fast forward to 2011, we started celebrating Short Film Day. An up roaring film movement began. Furthermore, people across countries started reminiscing the beauty of film.
How to Celebrate:
There are multiple ways to celebrate this day with your families. You can start by watching multiple iconic short films. You can look for some award-winning films and sit in your living room with your family to view them. Also, get a little creative. Direct your own short film. Dress up, create backgrounds, and get to work. If that seems like too much, maybe host a short film night. This will be your bonding moment with the family.
Pledge of Allegiance Day:
Loyalty is any country’s treasure. Moreover, people swear their allegiance to their country. On this day, people recite the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ with their hands on their hearts. So today, brush your memories and remember your Pledge of Allegiance.
Back in 1885, Colonel Balch wrote the Pledge of Allegiance. Although only a few celebrated it, it was the beginning of the saga of loyalty. Only seven years later, Francis Bellamy wrote the now recognized pledge. This was widely adopted. Moreover, even Congress accepted it in 1942. These historical events have majorly increased the devotion of countrymen for their country. We are one nation. Our allegiance lies with this one nation. We stand unified on the grounds of diversity.
