We just don’t see enough carolers in the summer. Where do they go? The beach, of course, just like everyone else! With at least 3 other gishers, go caroling on a crowded beach. Your attire and songs must be strongly winter and holiday themed.
It’s Mother’s Day this weekend in the US – Macaroni necklaces are so passé. Everyone knows what moms really love are high-end fashion designer macaroni handbags. Create an haute couture handbag from any or all of the following: macaroni (or any other pasta), beans, or rice, inspired by a maternal figure in your life.
Post a photo featuring your fashion bag artistically displayed to social media (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook or Instagram) tagged #BagByGISH by 13 May 11:59 PM PT for your chance to win! (Then, give your bag to a mom – if you don’t know one, find a local one on the GISH app!). Ten winners will be rewarded handsomely.
If you want to make it easy for us, you can also submit links to your social media photo posts here: https://goo.gl/forms/bFLy6HeQqoe4QY9A2

Haute couture macaroni clutch purse for Mother’s Day (and for a GISH challenge). Weird fabric to work with, but it’s functional, fashionable, and serves four! 👜: Eating Right for Healthy Living Twisted Elbow Veggie Pasta with Durum Wheat, Barilla Veggie Penne, @mpanighetti 💃🏼: @elven_jen 📸: @mpanighetti #BagByGISH #GISH gish.com
Behind the Scenes
As all Gishers know, Medieval Knights were often depicted battling snails and nobody knows why… except you. YOU know. Show us a historical re-enactment that adequately explains this centuries-old rivalry.
A million years ago, or so
Is where I’ll set my tale
Of a knight most fair who became aware
Of our humble hero snail
The snail was a victim of the old caste system
Of systematic oppression
She prayed the knight would heed her plight
But soon she’d learn her lesson
“Sir Knight,” said she, “with your chivalry
Will you ‘ear me plea o’ woe?
Me family’s got naught t’ eat
We could use your ‘help, by jove!”
Well the knight said:
“OH FUCK A TALKING DEMON SNAIL KILL IT”

Isn’t it great to get your friends and family together for the holidays?! But it’s so hard! Sometimes all you can manage is getting everyone together for one holiday a year. But then you have to choose a holiday, and that’s so hard, too! Wait a minute… not if you decide to celebrate ALL holidays in that one night! Let’s see that night. – Inspired by Nicole Bowman
