Well I had a bright idea after reading bobRyan's Kawanzaa thread. I thought how many Holidays are there acually in December. Here's a start for this week alone.... Week of December 20 - December 26 , 2004 Mon, 20th December: Cathode-Ray Tube Day Mudd Day Tue, 21st December: Winter Solstice Winter Begins (Northern Hemisphere) Summer Begins (Southern Hemisphere) Crossword Puzzle Day Forefathers’ Day Humbug Day Phileas Fogg Wins a Wager Day World Peace Day Yule (Wiccan) Yalda (Iran) Wed, 22nd December: Abilities Day Asarah B'Tevet (Jewish) Capricorn Begins Thu, 23rd December: Festivus Birthday of the Emperor (Japan) Feast of the Radishes (Mexico) Fri, 24th December: Christmas Eve Howard Hughes' Birthday (industrialist) Independence Day (Libya) Sat, 25th December: Christmas Day Birth of Jesus Christ A'phabet Day Constitution Day (Taiwan) Sun, 26th December: Kwanzaa Begins National Whiner's Day Saint Stephan's Day Second Day of Christmas Mao Tse-Tung's Birthday (revolutionist) Henry Miller's Birthday (novelist) Boxing Day (UK,Can) Day of the Wren (Ireland) Day of Goodwill (South Africa) Independence Day (Slovenia) ........amazing how someone will make a holiday just to celebrate? BTW May 1st is the 127th day after Christmas and my birthday! Watta coincedence! I really wonder how may other days are being passed off as holidays? And out of all those mentioned how many are really holy?
