Pretend To Be A Time Traveller Day

For those of us into Sci-Fi here at Orchard Training, we are celebrating today: Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day, which is celebrated annually on December 8.


Time travel has captured our imaginations for generations. Authors keep coming back to the topic over and over again and as reader we love reading it for pleasure. Therefore, there should be no surprise that there is a day to pretend to be a time traveler. Why are we celebrating this day - well after the year we have had why not! We certainly could do with some fun and some travel - even if it is only inside our heads, our front rooms or on the hall carpet. How are we Sci-Fi fans going to celebrate today, here are some ideas:

English: Write a time traveler story. Choose your time period and decide whether you are traveling to the past or the future. Be overly shocked when someone says, “I’d kill for a double mocha latte right now,” or “That car is the bomb!” Don't forget to have your character’s misuse technology because they have never seen it before. When someone offers them something like earphones to listen to a new song, have them sniff them to see if they smell good.
