There are various holidays across the world. Each of them in the certain nation has its own meaning. If I could create a new holiday, I want to create a reading day- encouraging people to do more reading in their life. Why I think it is necessary is base on these reasons.
Firstly, nowadays the peoples life pace is increased a lot. People are engaged in many kinds of activities, such as surfing on internet, watching TV and movie , listening music tape and CD. Few people have time and mood to read some serious literatures, and this trend will bring bad effects on us. For one thing, the reading ability will decay and it will result in the spirit world of people poor. Because reading the serious literature with deep thinking may enrich peoples intelligence which can benefits a lot in peoples life, thus one may learn how to face and overcome problems in his life, one may have the ability to stay alone without any anxiety, one may become more independent on spirit level. All those, I think, are the precious things.
Secondly, the children need to learn reading too. Children in these days are sieged by various things such as cartoon TVs and cartoon pictures. Compared with reading, all those are obviously easy to access . So children will no longer want to face the words on books. But lack of the ability to read will affect their development of intelligence. If a child grows up without the adequate reading training, it is not difficult to find that he will have no chance to achieve great accomplishments in future. Not to mention the whole young generation.
From the discussion above, I believe that reading is important in nowadays. It is necessary for people to get to know the imperative of reading. I hope in the reading day, people include the adults and children should do some serious readings and ask themselves whether they have read books recently.
