daily holidays and national what day with flag

What is a national day about?

So you ask, “It’s national what day?” Every day of the year has at least one special fun holiday connected with it. Some are registered nationally – some are even recognized internationally.

Other daily holidays aren’t registered. They can be a bizarre holiday like Extraterrestrial Abduction Day on March 20. Or maybe a fun day like Kiss Your Mate Day on April 28 or Fruitcake Toss Day on January 3.

Which brings us to the food holidays like Chocolate Chip Day on May 15, or World Whiskey Day on May 21. Some holidays last a week or even a whole month like Ginuary – you guessed it, in January.

Many daily holidays were founded by companies wanting to promote their products or by groups who want to celebrate their favorite hobbies. They have grown to be something more than they started out to be.

(Like Shower with a Friend Day on February 5th that was created to sell water filters and has become something else.)

These daily holidays give us a reason to celebrate every single day!
