Woman Plans To Marry Her Comforter Because It Gives The Best Hugs Ever

She won’t be alone on Valentine’s Day. How about you?

There’s nothing better than snuggling with your comforter, blanket, or duvet during the cold and frigid nights, or after a long day’s work. With the temperatures dropping during this frosty time of the year, you might want to spend most days in bed, sleeping or like a burrito in your most loved comforter.

One woman has taken this to the extreme – she plans to marry her duvet.

Pascale Sellick, a 49-year-old artist, announced her engagement and invites the public to witness her wedding.

Sellick said:

“My duvet is the longest, strongest, most intimate and reliable relationship that I have ever had. That’s because it has always been there for me and gives me great hugs.”

“I love my duvet so much I would like to invite people to witness my union with the most constant, comforting companion in my life.”

“There will be music and a ceremony, laughs, and entertainment.”

She's preparing for a lavish and free wedding party.

The upcoming wedding, which has been described as lavish, will be held at Rougemont Gardens in Exeter, Devon, England on February 10. The ceremony will be followed by a free wedding party at The Glorious Art House in Fore Street.

The guests are asked to wear dressing gowns, onesies, pajamas, and slippers. Plus, they can bring cuddly teddies and hot water bottles since it’ll be cold. The bride’s outfit will include a nightgown and fluffy slippers. She’ll wear a dressing gown, too.

For the duvet, the outfit will be a surprise, according to Sellick. Full vows will also be read in front of a fellow artist with no religious affinity.

She said that there is a two-week all-inclusive honeymoon at Ikea, in the bedroom department.

Sellick has hired Anna FitzGerald as the wedding planner. FitzGerald said that the ceremony celebrates feeling loved and warm, and not feeling alone on Valentine’s Day.

She added:

“This is the most out there art happening to date. I’m really pleased to be involved. Valentine’s day can be depressing for lots of people so hopefully, this will lift peoples’ spirits.”

“It would be wonderful if folks could shake off their English reserve and rock up in their sleepwear for a bit of light-hearted frivolity.”

Teacher Who Tried To Simulate Dictatorship In Classroom Gets Defeated By Students

“They fought for their rights. They won.”

Sometimes teachers will go above and beyond their duties to make sure their students learn an important lesson. However, a class of teenagers somehow managed to school their own instructor about something she never expected. A teacher tried to simulate dictatorship in her classroom to prepare the class for a book study. The response of the teens simply blew her away.

Diana Leygerman shared her story to prove that "the teens will save us." As a teacher, she must introduce the George Orwell dystopian novel 1984. But before she does so, Leygerman runs a simulation where she turns the classroom into "a totalitarian regime." The scheme worked for several years but things took an interesting turn in 2018.

The simulation enlisted the help of other teachers and became a school-wide effort.

According to Leygerman, the ploy to prevent "Senioritis" has always worked despite its oppressive rules. Students were not allowed to do anything unless they raised their hand and asked permission. Those who didn't play by the rules lost points while teens who reported other students were rewarded....
