 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.

 (Note: Ceremony is the day after a couple's anniversary. This is why dates vary.  But, this date is listed on my site due to the last qualified ceremony on June 20, 1751. So, for over 103 years, June 20th was considered Flitch of Bacon Day.  Then the  ceremony was revived in 1854.   But, the ceremony dates varied with each couple. Some were held in August.The ceremony is not annual..  But, I'm keeping June 20 as the official Flitch of Bacon Day since it was the traditional date for 103 years. So, you can celebrate on June 20 every year, or celebrate every four years  on the date set up by the town of Dunmow in England where the ceremonies now take place.
 PS: Here is a list of the most recent winners of 2012 at The Dunmow Flitch Trials website
