It's a Seuss-eriffic weekend! Follow the link to see this week’s entertainment suggestions. What are you planning to do? Will you celebrate Dr. Seuss in some manner?
1. Friday is Dr. Seuss Day and Read Across America Day. In honor of one of our most beloved writers, head to the library or bookstore this weekend and pick out some books to read, including, of course, Dr. Seuss books. Many libraries across the U.S. will be holding special events, so check the newspaper for listings.
2. Speaking of Dr. Seuss, the big new movie this week is “Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.” This PG movie is based on Dr. Seuss’ lovable book, and it stars the voice talents of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms and more. Also opening in wide release is “Project X,” an R thriller.
3. Friday is World Day of Prayer, a day when women gather to pray. This year’s theme focuses on Malaysia. Check the newspaper for listings on any public services, or head to the official website, http://www.worlddayofprayer.net.
4. Friday kicks off Celebrate Your Name Week. There are plenty of fun things for the family to do with this day and week: some suggestions are to research the meaning of your first and last names, play word games with your names (e.g., try to spell another word or words using the letters in your name) and whatever you can think of.
5. And don’t forget about sports! This weekend will see plenty of action, with college basketball, the NBA, NHL and NASCAR in full swing, and MLB spring training is ramping up. Check your TV guide for game times, or head online to your favorite sports site.
