For Tory Bullock, nothing is as magical as a snow day.
So the 28-year-old Boston actor, improv instructor for kids and video extraordinaire has made it his mission to share his love for the wintry mini-vacations with the world.
“I want people to start acknowledging how amazing snow days are,” Bullock told Metro. “If it was up to me, I would make the first snow day in the city of Boston a holiday because it’s just, nothing is more fun.”
Sunday night, following news that classes would be cancelled for Boston Public Schools on Monday, Bullock posted a video of himself rapping about his joy at reading a text about the news over an uplifting cut from “Lion King” soundtrack – one of his favorite movies. By Monday afternoon it had been viewed more than 10,000 times.
The Boston native’s snow day celebrations, which he started posting last winter, are becoming a sensation among students, teachers and others who just remember the feeling only a snow day can bring. They’ve popped up in teacher’s union newsletters, been shared among former students and garnered hundreds of comments on Facebook from people sharing his excitement.
