We’ll take any excuse we can get to celebrate. People all over the country anxiously await the big holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, etc. But unfortunately, these dates can feel distant. Here are some slightly less heard-of holidays that you can celebrate to keep the party going all year long.

  1. Working Naked Day. We have International Women’s Day, Black History Month, Canada Day, etc. Obviously it’s important to celebrate every group and culture there is, so why ignore the Nudists? It is a legitimate, respectable culture, raking in $400 million a year from nudist beaches, resorts, and clubs. So let’s celebrate their ancient traditions on February 1st next year. Kick off your shoes- and shirt, pants, socks, etc.- and enjoy Working Naked Day. Remember, it’s a national holiday so if you decide to show up to your workplace or even school sporting your birthday suit, no judgement will pass your way!
  2. World Zombie Day. Sure, the purpose of this day is technically to spread awareness of homelessness and hunger in major cities, but what’s the fun in that? Turn this depressing activist’s holiday into a celebration for you and your equally  nerdy friends by hosting a Zombie Night! On September 10th, dress in your best rotting flesh and tattered clothing, then invite every Walking Dead enthusiast you know to your house for board games and zombie-themed snacks (lady-fingers, anyone?)
  3. Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day. Take your houseplant for a walk on July 27th. Give your Ficus what it deserves: a nice day out on the town. Think about it, when was the last time you treated your leafy friend to a movie, brunch, or even a relaxing picnic? Photosynthesis is no easy task to complete, and you need to let your plants know that you appreciate all the hard work they do. Plus, what’s the point in maintaining a beautiful plant in your home if you never get to show it off? Strap some wheels on that baby and parade her around your neighborhood, show your 70-year-old neighbor, Geraldine, that her Posies will never hold a candle to your Gardenias.
  4. Hoodie Hoo! Day. Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! (yes this is an actual holiday on February 20th. participants shout “Hoodie Hoo!”  all day to combat seasonal depression) Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie Hoo! Hoodie
  5. Feast of the Ass.I don’t know what you were thinking, but this is a holiday about donkeys. The Feast of the Ass, though seldom celebrated now (at least, not in the traditional sense), was a medieval Christian festival held in praise of the Flight to Egypt. Its celebrations mainly took place in France as a spin-off of the Feast of Fools- an event in honor of all the donkey-related stories in the Bible. But as we all know, old styles always come back in at some point (mom jeans, chokers, you name it!). Make this festival popular again and hold a Feast of the Ass celebration on January 14th next year.  Food, fun, and feasting for all!
  6. International Scrap-booking Industry Day. Picture this; you tell all your friends you’re throwing  a “rager” on March 4th. You invite the whole school and make sure everyone shows up at 9 p.m. sharp. A mob of teenagers ready to party walks through your door to find the most wonderful surprise of their lives; tables upon tables of of scrapbooks, lace trim, zig-zag scissors, colored tape, stickers, markers, and ‘N Sync playing on loop! Your gluing techniques and pastel color-schemes will make you the most popular kid in school.  And the best part is, everyone will go home with a beautiful scrapbook to remember the night!
