Im no expert, but I think Gilbert and Sullivan was about where Opera became what we consider today as mordern musicals...




(also, we have a victorian tag.... how about an edwardwardian tag for 1900s-1915ish?)

It's December (what? Where the hell did the year go?!) Christmas/Holiday ads are welcome any time!

Our December contest starts TOMORROW (Monday) with the theme of CREEPY KIDS!

Rules

1. You must at least put 'contest' in the subject or I won't tally votes for the entry.

2. Print or video ads are fine.

3. All vintage ads rules apply EXCEPT only one ad per entry is allowed.

4. VOTING (yes the bane of contests for me): Voting is via a YES in the comments. I can only count a YES as a vote, as I must be fair to everyone. You can say that you like the ad, you can say it's beautiful, you can even discuss Aunt Ethel's hemorrhoid surgery in the comments but if you would like the ad to have a chance to be a finalist you MUST put a YES within your comment.

5. Regular ads are of course accepted!!

6. Official hem and haw rule. December already, really? I guess I should take the witches hat off my side door. I don't like to repeat holiday decorations, but one year on my side door I had drawn a gingerbread man with a bite out of his foot and he was saying "BITE ME". Another year I had an angry looking snowflake saying "FLAKE OFF". Then another year there was a Grinch giving the finger saying "GRINCH OFF". I'm thinking of drawing and coloring (I have a box of 64 crayons because I'm mature that way) a big xmas tree light bulb and have it say "GET LIT", or perhaps a breaking glass ornament saying "GET SHATTERED", or a mean looking elf saying "ELF OFF", or a candy cane with "GET CANED".....uh, i'm rather festively twisted....the man mail and delivery people enjoy what i put up though....

7. HAVE FUN!!!! That is always the most important rule in Vintage Ads!!

I have this tagged, 'master calendar' and I'll link to it on the 'sticky' post on the actual LJ vintage ads page, so you can reference it whenever you wish and find it easily!

I have added to the contest theme 'hat': meat, vegetables, fruit and non-creepy kids, that's in additional to what is already in there!
Added to our weekend themes: are all the ones that were suggested, plus I added all 50 states, countries, and of course what was already there! And yes, more ideas are always welcome!!! ETA: ALWAYS feel free to suggest a one day event, or suggest to change a weekend weekend in case i've overlooked something!!! this calendar is not etched in stone and can be changed, edited, altered, etc!!

Weekend Events, unless noted are always Friday to Sunday

* Gay Equality Day note: I think this is important to have once a month with the ever increasing laws against gays in Russia (and LJ is owned by a Russian company and the site goes down when there are huge protests). Not to mention that world wide gays are persecuted and even killed for just being who they are. Even in the states, as with the recent hate crime murder of a gay man in NYC. This isn't political, this is a human right's issue. And I hope I continue to be the only one (well I know one other member who was targeted, though not directly) who is harassed about this. I am on troll patrol, there is zero tolerance for intolerance (though the Russians pointed out I wasn't allowing free speech, but hate speech is NOT free speech as far as I am concerned) and if any member is harassed or threatened, please let me know! I have a friend who also can translate Russian--much better than google translate! :) If you are a regular, you can contact me for my phone number even. I want everyone to feel 'safe' here!

Oh and one other note, I got a complaint that I only seem to defend gay people. That's not true. I once defended a Christian who was attacked for zero reason here because it was Easter time (this was years ago) and they had an icon with Jesus on a cross and someone attacked them for that. It was horrible and WRONG. I would defend anyone being attacked here regardless of faith, color, sex, etc. Most of the problems we have here though are, unfortunately, homophobic in nature. Which further buttresses my rationale for gay equality day!
