Hi and Lois Sunday page digital proof, July 30, 2006.
In this charming Sunday page, Dot has written the backstory for a new holiday. Likely inspired by Disney’s “Little Mermaid,” she created a legend where the Great Mermaid brings presents to kids all over the world inside a giant whale. This happens every year on the first Sunday of August.
There is a stretch of months between the spring and the fall when there are no gift-receiving opportunities for kids. We thought it would be fun to invent “Aquafest” to fill this void.
Here is a list of all the major annual holidays.
