This one’s for the birds: Early Birds vs Night Owls

Are you an early riser?  Or do you like sleep all day and party all night?  Pick your favorite feathered friend and let the battle begin!

Early Birds

They say the early bird catches the worm!  You like to rise, shine and greet the day.  Getting up early means you don’t have to rush in the morning.  You can have a pleasant homemade breakfast, go for a run, maybe get some good reading in before your work or school day begins.  You don’t need an alarm clock, you have nature’s alarm clock – the sun!

Night Owls

A little sunshine is nice now and again, but your day really begins after it sets.  You know the stars come out it’s time to really get going.  Whether you like to party all night long, or just find that 2 am is the peak time for inspired ideas, the dark cover of night is a good friend to you.  Sure it might mean it takes you a little while longer to get out of bed in the morning, but there’s just something magical about observing the witching hour on a nightly basis.  And besides, you can’t enjoy a good midnight snack unless you’re awake at midnight!

The competition begins at 11:00 AM EDT on 4/20 and goes for 24 hours!
