Why do we celebrate with balloons?

In the minutes before every EOB celebration, party volunteers swiftly unload a vehicle parked outside the hosting shelter. There are big, plastic bins to carry—each filled to the brim with hand-made decorations, game pieces, goody bags, party itineraries, balloons, and helium tanks.

We design and repurpose them. We dye 'em in backyard buckets. They sit folded in drawers and tumble in dryers. We pull them over our heads and onto our bodies when we need comfort.

February is devoted to our fellow page-turners; those in passionate pursuit of a good story, whether it’s fact or fiction, mysterious or scientific, romantic or suspenseful.
