We have put together lists for each months holidays along with daily and monthly observances. We hope this helps you to find fun holidays for you to celebrate with loved ones! Some of traditional such as St Patrick’s Day and Easter while others are quirky such as Banana Cream Pie and Stop Bad Service Day, others are more serious such as Red Cross Month or Colic Awareness Month.

A public holiday, national holiday or legal holiday is a holiday generally established by law and is usually a non-working day during the year. If you want to make up your own holiday and make it official, you may have to talk to your local representative – only an official act of the legislature or government can make a holiday a national day.
