Participation in these holidays is not mandatory. For example: You don’t have to wait until Legend of Zelda Week to write about Majora’s Mask, nor must you only post about Final Fantasy stuff in its given week. This is just a fun guideline, as a point of community interaction, and perhaps a help to those who would like to plan ahead or have a prompt to draw from.

Enjoy!
