Throughout the year the Chinese New Year is the most visited holiday on our site. Christmas comes in a close second.
This is a difficult question to answer. However, after hashing it around we feel certain it is some type of spring festival. Even before we began to harvest, the celebration of spring and the rebirth of fruit, vegetables, and animals (and the sun) surely inspired the populace to party. Specific holidays are not ascertainable because each culture has its own Spring Fest.
There are hundreds of “national” holidays, and most of them seem to be related to food.
How can this be?
There are no federal trademarks on the word “national”. There is no law stating that a national day must be declared by an act of congress. Therefore, anyone can declare a national holiday or special observance day.
However, in the US is does take an act of congress or a presidential proclamation to declare an official National Day.
Most of the days have obvious backers. For example, National Cherry Month is probably the brainchild of the the Cherry Growers Association. Perfume manufactures more than likely created National Fragrance Week.
One thing is for sure, they are fun to celebrate.
The dates for the holidays are on the holiday page or in the calendar. If you’re looking for the date of a holiday we don’t have listed, use your favorite search engine.
