Crazy Mixed Up Day was one of my favorite holidays growing up. Crazy Mixed Up Day is a Harkins’ Holiday that occurred once a year. The rules of Crazy Mixed Up Day were simple, the kids ruled for 24 hours! My sister and I could stay up as late as we wanted, sit at the head of the table, eat whatever we wanted, watch as much TV as possible and ground our parents!
Crazy Mixed Up Day started with a trip to the grocery store where we were allowed to pick any three things we wanted with the understanding that they would be thrown away at the end of the day. When I was really little I really wanted a pacifier since I had just given it up the year before. Other years I stocked up on cookie dough, ice cream, and cakes. One year we even went to Disneyland!
What I think is so special about this holiday is that it lets kids be crazy kids. My parents enjoyed watching the craziness and found comfort knowing they would be back in control the next day. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to have my own Crazy Mixed Up Day when I have kids!April 14, 2011
