Today, August 31st, is the best holiday everrrr! Semantic Shift Day is the day that you redefine all things that do not exist in a way that makes it so you can say they do exist!
This holiday started last year, you can read the first post here:
This year let’s spread the word and make this new holiday big.
What can you do?
Post this or something like it on your social media sites or website:
Happy Semantic Shift Day – August 31st
On Semantic Shift Day we re-define the non-existent into existence for one day. This means everything now exists under your new definitions and you should attempt to use some of these newly defined words that normally represent non-existent things like fairies, leprechauns, Santa, free will, and so on …throughout the day. See here for more info on what this holiday is about and the point it makes: https://breakingthefreewillillusion.com/semantic-shift-day/
The point of this holiday is to demonstrate the absurdity and confusions that arise when people shift words or terms around to mean something uncommon, or when they neglect a key concept implied in the word which the majority of people hold.
