Have you made it through all of my holiday postings?

If your answer is “yes,” then you know what you should do?

I know that I will!

While working on all of my holiday posts, I kept debating whether or not to create foundation programs for pop-culture-based celebrations. The thought of writing at least a dozen more holiday posts made me want to cry. But then I had a flash of inspiration:

LET US CELEBRATE THEM, ONE AND ALL!!!

I shall call this program ::dramatic pause:: The Family Fandom Festival where all ages and all fandoms can come to the library and celebrate their holiday nerdery together.

A flyer for The Family Fandom Festival for libraries featuring many pop-culture celebrations.

This event could be done in so many ways – especially depending on who in your community would enjoy cosplaying during the holiday season (and not just as Antasay Lauscay). Here’s a list of holidays that I selected, but you can definitely find and incorporate more – after all, the more the merrier!

Get some meat lovers pizzas, dust off your Vader helmet, and ring your bells!

*whispers* so much pop cultuuuuure…

DISPLAY & ACTIVITIES

Here are two scavenger hunt sheets that you can also use for a display. Click on the two image collages for a letter-sized version that you can download and print:

Imagery from pop culture holiday events for a scavenger hunt or display.
Another set of images from various pop culture holiday celebrations for a scavenger hunt or a library display.

SONGS

You have so many options here! Whether you have a sing-along portion of the event, or put together a playlist for background music – you’ll be sure to have fun with lots of these:

And in honor of my all-time favorite princess Carrie Fisher:

And there you have it: the final post of Library Holidaypalooza!

Hopefully you learned something (I know that I did) and have been inspired. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll rethink holiday programming at your library as a result. If not? At least I know that I tried.

If you happen to have started at the end of this series, then you should start here, or you can check out the holidays tag.

…OR IS IT?!

(It totally is. I am utterly sick and tired of coming up with holiday programs)
