 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..

July 2024 Moon Phases

Current Moon View
as of today

 New Moon
6:59 pm

 First Qtr.
6:49  pm


 Full Moon
 6:19 am

Last Qtr.
 10:54 pm

Full Moon on  the 21st is called "Buck Moon" by Native Americans of New England and the Great Lakes because at this time of the year, the new antlers of the buck deer begin to appear.  It's also called the "Thunder Moon" due to all the summer storms.

July 28-29 - Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower that's an average meteor shower which is suppose to produce about 20 meteors per hour when peaking.  It runs from July 12 to August 23.  But it's peak is on July 28 and morning of 29th. The moon might block out some of the lighter meteors but you might be able to see some good ones at a dark location.
