Lesser Known Holidays

This is a list of lesser known holidays, it is constantly growing. Hopefully, we can find a holiday for every single day of the year (besides the common bank holidays).

RSS A short list of the next five days' holidays is available as an RSS feed.

This list is far from complete. I still need to fact check a few of the days and add descriptions to many more.
