Quick Thought: Should Captain America be the 4th of July's Santa Claus?
A few days ago Rob texted me saying that he heard Christmas music in the coffee shop he was at, and last night I was at Wal-Mart and saw Little Debbie Christmas in July treats, and this got me thinking about how the 4th of July could use Captain America as its mascot to create some fun memories for kids. Sure, there's Uncle Sam, but I think with Captain America you could do the whole climbing down the chimney/hiding the eggs/mischievous fun games like you do with other holiday mascots. Here's my initial thoughts on the concept, but I want YOUR help in trying to modify it to be the best possible. Oh, and my idea has Avengers: Endgame spoilers, so if for some bizarre reason you follow Nerd Dads but somehow have yet to see the movie, well, go see it first and then read the rest of this post!
Here's my idea: At the end of Endgame, Captain America needs to travel back in time to put the Infinity Stones back in the proper place, but because he is jumping around time, he could also sneak into homes and leave a note for children to make sure they do something nice for their community, and if they do so he'll treat them to a firework show at the end of the night. This way, instead of buying a toy or something for your child, you can encourage what it means to be a true American and encourage them to make a difference.
What do you think of this idea? Could it work? Does it need fine tuning? Is it rubbish? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!
