Weird and Wacky Holidays

There are a million wacky holidays to celebrate all year long.
Celebrate All Year

When most of us think of holidays, we think of days like Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years or Labor Day. Most of us don't think of Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, National Superhero Day or Save the Rhino Day. Yet these observances are just as official as any other holiday. We just don't get to take these days off school.

Where Do these Wacky Days Come From?

Anyone can apply to their government or to the United Nations to have their day formalized. Unless the day is racist, sexist or otherwise hateful, it is usually accepted. This has led to some pretty strange holidays but making these days official also takes up a lot of time in the US congress. Let's check some out!
