Bizarre, Crazy, Silly, Unknown Holidays & Observances

November comes from the Latin word novem, "nine," because this had been the ninth month in the early Roman calendar.
(Note: Although it's our eleventh month, the name never got changed.)
Stone = Yellow Topaz      Flower = Chrysanthemum

 Holiday Authenticity
How Holidays Begin and How to Start One.

Rules for Use:

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

Although we have holidays for most days, there are a few that are blank. I realize social media spouts these daily. I'm sure you know that some are just made up and fake. Maybe they're fun, but, Beware! Also, some observances that are validated through website links, can't be updated until their websites update their information.

I do not do ads. I do not try to make money from keeping these listings. I do not respect other holiday sites that steal my information and put it on a site wanting to make money from ads or charging to even validate a holiday.

I'll add a holiday observance for free if it's coming from a valid source and not obscene, hateful, etc.

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. --

Link to my holiday pages or, use them for personal, off-line use for clubs, newsletters, homemade calendars, etc.

You're invited to share these holidays on Twitter, etc. Just tell folks where you got them. All I have is word-of-mouth since I do not do ads.

Sadie Hawkins Day: 6 (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. 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 wedding per se. ;)  Hope this helps to clarify things a bit.
