Well, I do agree that they celebrate some odd days. This is true.
But I would like to point out today's Google icon of the "Wizard of Oz" is not as weird as many of their others, at least to me it's not that
Who has not seen "The Wizard of Oz"? I think almost every Westerner knows about it and has seen it.
I even let my little girl watch it when she was 4, and she really liked it. I watched it with her and explained things to her so she wasn't scared or
confused about things. She knows it's fake.
But also, "Wizard of Oz" is an incredibly important book (and later film) that is steeped in a lot of history. It is a integral part of our modern
culture, that is for sure.
It is one of our "modern myths" that we pass down through the generations, and it has been loved/hated (mostly loved) by countless people throughout
So yes I can understand why it's being celebrated.
Now if you really wanna get into some weird stuff, go read up on the history of the book and film. Go read into the lives of the actors who were in
the original film.
There is some incredibly eye opening things you will find out about.
Like how the Tin man got sick because of the aluminum paint or whatever they put on him etc. And what happened to Judy Garland.
There is some definite conspiracy material in there, and some "wow we humans are idiots" material as well.
Here is a link to the 1939 film.
And here is a link to the original book.
"The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"
It's totally worth taking the time out to read up on this subject. There is a ton of information about this subject, and I highly recommend
people research into it as you will find TONS of oddities!
