 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..

Full Moon on  the 23rd  is called "Flower Moon" by Native Americans of New England and the Great Lakes because this time of the year flowers are all over.

May 6-7 - Eta Qquarids Meteor Shower which will be a really cool one that's suppose to produce a meteor every minute!  It'll be seen in the Southern Hemisphere the best.  But, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the rate would be a meteor every 2 minutes or so.  Although it runs from April 19-May 28, the peak is going to be May 6 (night) into the morning of May 7.
