December Teen Board Question: If you could invent a book-themed holiday, what would it be and how would you celebrate it?

If I could invent a book-themed holiday it would be National Faction Day in honor of the Divergent series. Everyone could celebrate by dressing in clothes according to their faction, eating Dauntless cake, and do activities with their factions. For example, Amity could have a campfire, Dauntless could go zip-lining, Abnegation could volunteer at local soup kitchens and Erudites could read! --- Kate F.

What would the two of you do?
