    I'l get to the point. cephs are awsome, and as an awsome thing, they deserve to be celebrated. and not in the way that cephalopodmas celebrates them, as a digusting thing to fear. that is why i propose that we make april 4th international ceph day! an unoficial holiday, but then again so is halloween and talk like a pirate day, and of course, arbor day. I'll leave you to build off of this post.

    actualy it doesn't have to be april 4th. i just picked a random day.

    for more information on talk like a pirate day go to www.talklikeapirate.com

    Cephalopodmas is on December 22. If we need another day to celebrate cephalopods, how about August 8 (8/8)? Or some other octo/deco multiple.

    Perhaps we could lobby the appropriate UN committees and get an upcoming year designated as the International Year of the Cephalopods. The dolphins already got one.

    mabe we could make it a ceph month. fill it full of conventions and stuff. August would be a good month, and if that doesn't work we could use october.

    and seriously. "get your special squammous something fetid"?

    cephs are beautiful creatures and are anything but fetid.

    and if your days are full of tentacles they certainly won't be full of terror!

    I'd wondered about that Kat, it has Douglas Adamsish overtones!

    The eighth of October seems fitting, but I would have to concur that cephalopodmas sort of "mowed the grass away from in front of our feet", as the Dutch proverb goes...

    Lost in translation :smile:

    My family has been celebrating 8 Aug as Octopus Day for the
    past few years. It usually involves making octopus-shaped
    pancakes for breakfast. I suppose that 10 Oct could be Squid Day.
    As a bonus it would nearly coincide with Thanksgiving (in Canada
    at least), when we give thanks for aout cephalopod friends.

    I think that we should bunch all of the cephs together into one day to make it easier. I also believe that Cephalopodmas is an insult to cephalopods
