Today is...Make Up Your Own Holiday Day
Today is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. What is your holiday?
My personal holiday would be Fun Facts Day!
The record for the highest seasonal total snowfall was measured at Mount Baker Ski Area outside Bellingham, Washington during the 1998-1999 winter season, with 95 feet of snow.
Bellingham, Washington has the Bellingham Theatre Guild, a non-profit community theater that Hilary Swank performed at before moving to LA to pursue acting as a career.
Swank made her acting debut in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
Though both written by Joss Whedon, the movie and tv versions of Buffy the Vampire Slayer do not have continuity. Whedon wrote the pilot of the show as a sequel to his original screenplay, which changed dramatically in filming.
Joss Whedon has been nominated for one Academy Award: Best Original Screenplay for Toy Story.
Toy Story was the first feature-length computer-animated film. It was also the first film produced by Pixar.
Pixar started as a division of Lucasfilm in 1979 before its spin-out as a corporation in 1986, funded by Steve Jobs. When The Walt Disney Company bought Pixar in 2006, Jobs became Disney's largest shareholder.
Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4.05 billion. Around the same time, Disney and Lucasfilm announced the future release of new Star Wars films, starting with Episode VII in 2015.
J.J. Abrams, who previously directed Star Trek, will be the director of Star Wars Episode VII.
