Then add some flowers to your head.   Pick some up at your local florist at the end of the day.

Idea 2:
Get your friends together and dance around a May Pole


Grab some ribbon and a pole and party.

Idea 3:
Dionysus (the god of wine making)


-some purple fabric
-grapes

Dress up as your favorite ninja and celebrate like those in the Japanese city of Iga.
