 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 29th  is the traditional "Harvest Moon" or "Corn Moon"  because this is the one that falls closest to the autumn equinox.  Most of the time (2 out of 3 years) the Harvest Moon is in the month of September.  Sometimes it will come in October.  It name comes from the fact that farmers (and Indians) could harvest their crops late at night, by moonlight, because  for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the United States.
