Ones Upon A Day

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day (also known as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day) because the armistice that ended World War I was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (in 1918). However, tomorrow’s date even has the 11th year! Ron Gordon’s hobby is drawing attention to “calendar holidays,” meaning days that are notable because of their date numbers. He held contests in honor of Odd Day and Square Root Day. Now he’s doing the same for 11-11-11, the date he calls “Ones Upon a Day.” The pun in the name is also the theme for the contest:

The contest: Write the best (short) story or poem. It must start with “Ones Upon a Day”. Have fun, be creative and clever, and maybe you’ll be one of our winners!

Prizes: We’re giving away the date in dollars ($1,111.11) to be divided among the best 11+11+11 entries. We won’t make you rich, but you can always brag about how “Ones Upon a Day” you won a contest!
