were the FIRST on the net to provide this
extensive validated listing
We also try to be as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
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.
Holidays are Here!
There are 2014 and 2015 pages for November and December.
To avoid confusion, the 2014 pages are solid colors!
When the month ends, I'll delete the 2014 page.
All 2014 information still remains on-line for all months via the printable calendars.
The watercolor backgrounds remain on all the 2015 pages.
I did my best to be as accurate as possible.
If you do find an error, please let me know.
Some dates are not up on the sponsor's websites yet, (esp. those that have just happen or not yet occured ) so I used this year's forumla for 2015 until they post something different.
My information was 2 weeks late. Thanks so much for your patience and your loyalty.
NOTE: The crazy fonts have been fixed. I had to retype every page. Uffdah!

|We now offer a FREE printable Brownielocks' calendar with her Daily Observances for each month.||Note: If someone tells me of a new observance, the html pages will be updated BEFORE the calendar! But, both are always subject to change as new information is always being provided to me.|
This confused some people because there was one every month.
It's also confusing because the title doesn't define the observance IMHO.
So I did not list them monthly this year. Instead I want to explain what they are.
The Bonza Bottler's Day celebrations means:
The day is the same as the month it is in!
There are 12 of them as follows:
sponsor describes it like this: "To celebrate when the number of
the day is the same as the number of the month. It's an excuse to have
a party at least once a month!"

putting the link to the information here.
In many countries, besides your birthday, you also have a "Name Day." This is the special day of the year that has been designated for your name. Different countries have different calendars. Click the link on the left to find out your special "Name Day."
I was interviewed in June by Eleska Aubespin for the "Florida Today" newspaper regarding all of these crazy, silly, wacky, and serious holidays. Note: The article printed our domain name wrong! :(

What about the traditional holidays?
Visit our Cartoon Cave for all of the Traditional Holiday specials we've done such as Christmas, New Years, Valentines, St. Patrick's Day and St. Urho's Day, Easter, Halloween, 4th of July (and other patriotic holidays) Thanksgiving, Ramadan, Hanukkah & Kwanzaa + Graduation Day (some consider a holiday) and Labor Day.
about stuff like historical events, famous people's birthdays, deaths, etc. ?
The best source for what occurred on any given day, other than our daily bizarre, silly, holidays and observances, is Wikipedia. Just do a search for any day and they list day of the year it is and then on one page all the historical events, births, deaths, etc. for that day.
Big Anniversary Terms
biennial or diennial
