Melissa Awesome’s List of Ways To Celebrate ‘Shark Week’
It's the most wonderful time of the year, it's shark Week! I'm a firm believer in the saying "live every week like it's Shark Week" so when it really is Shark Week, there's really no excuse to not celebrate. And this year there's even more of a reason to celebrate because this year marks the 25th anniversary of Shark Week! So unless you're a bitter person and hate shark week like our very own Big Boy, you don't want to miss my favorite ways to get down on Shark Week!
6) Join this cool cause to save the sharks!
Sharks populations around the world are crashing, and if we don't do something to help now they could go the way of the dinosaurs (the big scary "E" word!) and we don't want that to happen! For one sharks are a huge draw to divers as an attraction, and areas with higher shark populations drew in more people, and more people means more money for the area (sounds crazy, but this video explains more). Also if for no other reason than the fact that if sharks were to become extinct the balance of our oceans ecosystems would be severely thrown off.
5) Buy some of these sweet shark cupcakes
These cupcakes are made by Georgetown Cupcakes in DC, and for Shark Week you can order a dozen of these bad boys, and they will ship them to you! Since 15% of the proceeds from these go to Oceana the biggest organization for ocean conservation, you won't feel guilty at all about eating these sweets! (Because I need to find all the reasons I can to eat some delicious sweets!) Plus your kids/nieces/nephews/friends kids/neighbors/roommates will love you. Also if you don't feel like splurging on these, you could make your own fun Shark Week themed cupcakes.
4) Put a replica of the famous Chompy the shark on your house or place of business
Discovery Channel does it every year, so why can't you?! Then your friends or coworkers will really know that you may in fact be formal, but you are here to party...because it's Shark Week! (Don't know who Chompy is? Meet him here!)
3) Have your friends over and watch Jaws!
What would be really cool would be if you had a projector and a giant white sheet, and could have an outdoor screening of Jaws. However if you're like me you probably don't have that, so just a movie night at your house would be a good idea. Dun nuh. dun nuh, dun nuh (trying to type the Jaws music, but it's not really working...you get my point)
2) Shark Week Drinking Game!
Does this really need anymore explanation? I'm in college, and this sound like a good idea.
1) Watch Shark Week on Discovery Channel!
Shark Week began on Sunday, and what's a better way to celebrate Shark Week, than by actually watching Shark Week? Invite some friends over, grab some popcorn (or shark week cupcakes) and have a party. Believe it or not, I've actually gone to a Shark Week themed party, and it was incredible.
So all of this being said, how will YOU celebrate Shark Week?
