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.

Sadie Hawkins Day: 1 (See Note Below)  Link  Link
(Always First Saturday.  This is what Chase's Calendar put and so I stuck with that formula for this observance. But, a  Sadie Hawkins Dance can be held anytime a school or someone wants to have one.
 Also, some call Leap Year Day - Feb. 29 as Sadie Hawkins Day also because tradition states that women can ask the men to marry them on that  day.  To me, Leap Year Day is not Sadie Hawkins Day and they are two separate observances.
 Asking a guy to a dance is different than asking him to marry you.
  Although...in the cartoon strip, once the single gals caught their guys in the annual footrace, the men were forced to marry the gal that caught them aka a shotgun edding per se. ;) 
 Hope this helps to clarify things a bit.
