Bizarre, Crazy, Silly, Unknown Holidays & Observances

February is derived from the Latin word "februs" meaning "to cleanse."  The month was named after the Roman Festival, Februalia, a month long festival of purification and atonement.
Stone = Amethyst      Flower = Iris or Violets

 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.

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 holidays for free if they are coming from a valid source and not obscene, hateful, etc..

My holidays as a daily, weekly, monthly and total composite 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.   

I invite you to use my holiday pages for personal use, off-line use for clubs, newsletters, homemade calendars, etc..
