Holiday Miscellaneous

There are 365 days in the year and if you look closely you'll find there's a holiday every single day. Not all holidays are official which means they don't qualify as time off from work holidays.

The usual day-off holidays are Christmas, Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and so on, but have you ever heard of National Fruitcake Toss Day or National Spaghetti Day, both of which fall on Friday, January 4?

Bizarre Holidays

Special days set aside for celebration can be long steeped in tradition, depending upon culture. Other holidays can be wacky, bizarre, off the wall or simply somethig new, fun and different that catches on and becomes popularized.
