In the Spotlight

By Sharmini Jayawardena

Hi, Happy ๐Ÿ˜† Roald Dahl Day, All! Especially to those whom I cursed and meant it two years to date. Thatโ€™s Gobblefunk for you! (There were those who got it when Messenger decided to auto-send to all my contacts and to them ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝit wasnโ€™t meant for you. Now break your neck figuring out who you are ๐Ÿ˜„)

Roald Dahl would have been 103 today.

And, this year, 2019, the Day falls on a Friday 13th๐ŸงŸโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜„ Whiffswiddel!

Sky ๐ŸŒ€ 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 ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿฟ that are equally delightful, such as The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory๐Ÿซ๐Ÿญ, Danny the Champion of the World, Fantastic Mr Fox ๐ŸฆŠ, Four Rooms, James and the Giant Peach ๐Ÿ‘, Revolting Rhymes, Matilda, Esio Trot and The Witches.

Others are adaptations from the movies themselves like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and itโ€™s Tom and Jerry animated version.

May be have a fancy dress ๐Ÿ‘— par-taay ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ 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 style๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ
