The Alliday Show believes that everyday should be celebrated as a holiday! That being said, which holiday do you wish were everyday and why? Jodi - Labor Day, because I don’t have to go to work and it is a paid holiday.
Bill – Memorial Day, because it is the beginning of Summer and it is a paid holiday.
If you could create a new holiday, what would it be and how would it be celebrated? I would like every Monday to be considered
Will you be unveiling any new goods at Alliday?
Yes, we went to Tucson, AZ and bought a ton of beads in February and have been creating new things since then.
