How to Make a Snow Day

How to Make a Snow Day

Being new to Colorado, I recently inquired among our teachers and staff about the local customs that children have to help bring on a snow day.  Some call them superstitions, but by whatever name, children all over the world try to increase the chances of a school closing due to weather in interesting ways.  Here’s the e-mail thread that ensued.

Good Evening Everyone!

I’m trying to plan, and could use some help in acclimating to Colorado customs.  What is the local practice in praying for a snow day? In Kansas, we slept with our pajamas on backwards.  I don’t remember the scientific data on its effectiveness.

What are the Colorado customs?  Asking for a friend. 😉

The only thing that’s ever worked for me is to pretend that it’s not even snowing outside… then you’ll wake up to a blizzard.

My kids tell me that in addition to ice cubes in the toilet and pajamas on backwards and inside out is to put a spoon under your pillow. Let’s hope it works!

PJ’s backwards, spoon under pillow and the ice cubes….but…supposedly the ice cubes are supposed to freeze the pipes and cause a rupture under the roads with ice slicks…so….

I’m not sure if there is an official custom, but I sure appreciate the levity! Here are a few other ideas that we could adopt for MSCS….
