your birthday today?

Search results take a few seconds and open in a  new window. May need to allow Pop Ups to see results.


All our holidays are validated with sponsors or organizations; or, we  validate the source or origin for an observance to prove it's not made up.

We do not have holidays for every single day of the year. Sites that do, IMHO are making some of their days up.  Beware!
Also, some observances that are validated through website links, can't be updated until their websites update their 2014 information.

Visiting us is free! Our Holiday information is free.   We have always paid all costs and remained ad free as well.

All of my  holiday  and observances lists as a whole group are not "fair use" information.  (Individual holidays are owned by their sponsors.)
 They  are copyrighted via this domain and are not to be taken and put on another website, blog,  or made into a downloadable application, etc..
  Doing so is a violation of the DMCA.    You're invited to LINK to any holiday page(s) you'd like.
