    Holidays

    Which holidays do you celebrate? Tick each one. You can also tick if you like the idea of the holiday but don't really do anything. This can include an even passing acknowledgment in one's mind. Celebrations can be religious or secular. I picked the United States federally recognized holidays and a few holidays I had otherwise heard of and could find some information on. Please use the "Unlisted" options and then elaborate if you see fit. I know there are some very equivalent secular holidays celebrated in America that are called something else or celebrated at a different time elsewhere.

    Have a lesser-known holiday or one you'd like to propose? Petition here, for what good it will do you.

    Please no fighting in this thread. This is intended as a cultural and personal silly census and to provoke thoughts of happy aspects of holidays.

    Some holidays suck in some way or another, I know. Pick the ones you actually know, do, or like.

    I do most of the bigger ones in America. In particular I love Christmas in general despite being entirely non-religious

    Where's Valentine's Day and White Day? And Golden Week? XP

    I celebrate Memorial Day by going to anime conventions... XP
    Halloween, Christmas, New Years, Independence Day, St. Patty's day and sometimes V-day & White day are the big ones for me. I like all the others to some extent.
    I like the idea of the sabbats & I would celebrate if I could. Lately, I've found Yule fascinating but that's mostly because of manga. -.-;

    Its pretty much just a "Hallmark holiday" in my family. No religion involved at all. We aren't very religious here... we don't even talk religion. So my family has no idea I'm a witch... -.-;

    Memorial Day. It's just an excuse to sit around in the backyard with my relatives, eating hamburgers and potato salad... If I had friends who invited me to parties then I might enjoy Halloween and New Year's more.

    White Day is when dudes give girls who gave them chocolate presents. March something.

    Golden Week is when Shonen Jump goes on break.

    Soon I'll get to celebrate Oktoberfest on the regular and not just unofficially, definitely looking forward.

    Golden Week is when Japan tells its people to rein in their workaholic urge for a week.

    Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter we always have family dinners on both sides of the family

    There's generally celebration on Canada Day too but I rarely go to those things

    Does it count as celebrating Summer Solstice if I only celebrate because it's my birthday? If so, it's my most celebrated one.

    I put my birthday under "Unlisted Secular Holiday" since I celebrate it at least on par with Christmas.

    Christmas, because that's where the holiday ham is. New Year's too, if you can afford it.

    But I acknowledge any holiday as long as we get day off out of it and/or get to eat in celebration.
