We have extended this blogathon through October 17, our website’s third anniversary! There is still time to participate!
Ladies and Gentlemen, the great day has now arrived! Today is the first day of The Third Annual Great Breening Blogathon! For the third year in a row, we are dedicating a weekend in October to all things Breen and Code! You might think that that is what we do in all our articles all year long, but this event is special. In this blogathon, we invite you to join us in studying, reviewing, and describing the Code’s influence on films!
The blogathon is four days this year. It runs until Monday, October 14, which would have been Joseph I. Breen’s 131st birthday! The initial purpose of this blogathon was to celebrate Mr. Breen’s birth, a special event that we here at PEPS can’t let go unnoticed, since he is the hero of all Code-lovers. In addition, October 14 is also two holidays this year, Columbus Day in the United States and Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Those are appropriate holidays to coincide with this event. Columbus is an important forefather in the foundation of our country, just as Joe Breen is a forefather of pure entertainment in Hollywood. Also, the Code is something for which to be thankful!
Please send us your articles any time during this extended weekend. Although we will accept late entries, let’s try to confine most of the posting to the four days we have designated. If you decide to join after the blogathon has begun, that’s fine. The more the merrier! If you want to participate but don’t have a blog, leave a comment, and we will arrange to publish it here on our website.
Thank you, everyone! Don’t forget to include a banner and a link to this post in your articles. Keep checking back here throughout the weekend to read the entries as they come in! Let the breening begin! Happy Birthday, Mr. Breen!

As promised at the beginning of this blogathon, we are hereby announcing our next blogathon, The Second Annual Claude Rains Blogathon! That’s right! This is a reprise of the blogathon which Rebekah hosted last November in honor of the great British actor. The dates this year are November 8-10, to coincide with his 130th birthday on November 10! We are allowing any topics about him, his films, his career, and his life. There are no restrictions on duplicates. We will publish the official announcement within the next few days. In the meantime, you can leave a comment here to express your desire to join!
