In the Spotlight
By Sharmini Jayawardena
Hi, Happy 😆 Roald Dahl Day, All! Especially to those whom I cursed and meant it two years to date. That’s Gobblefunk for you! (There were those who got it when Messenger decided to auto-send to all my contacts and to them 👉🏽it wasn’t meant for you. Now break your neck figuring out who you are 😄)
Roald Dahl would have been 103 today.
And, this year, 2019, the Day falls on a Friday 13th🧟♂️😼😄 Whiffswiddel!
Sky 🌀 is the limit when it comes to celebrating a day, especially a day commemorating Roald Dahl. He has brought so much joy and mirth to many children and grown-ups alike, through his numerous out of this world stories. Some of these awesome stories have been made into movies 🎥🍿 that are equally delightful, such as The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory🍫🏭, Danny the Champion of the World, Fantastic Mr Fox 🦊, Four Rooms, James and the Giant Peach 🍑, Revolting Rhymes, Matilda, Esio Trot and The Witches.
Others are adaptations from the movies themselves like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and it’s Tom and Jerry animated version.
May be have a fancy dress 👗 par-taay 🎈🎊🎉 and serve Roald Dahl character inspired food? Or foods straight from the stories themselves. That would be a real treat for both, the person throwing the party as well as for the attendees!
Then, top it with a Dahl movie and finish off with a Dahl style witch hunt, The Witches style🧙♂️

Here are more fun stuff for Dahl Day celebrations 🎊🎉
Now, how can you not celebrate Dahl Day without treating yourselves to some of Quentin Blake’s smiffing* drawings that permeate every single book 📖📚 by Dahl?!
Ok you biffsquiggled Oompa-Loompas here you go….
PAR-TAAY 🥳🎈🥳 🎉🤩 🎊 🤩
