Fun Holiday – Make Up Your Own Holiday Day

March 26 is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. It is a day to think up of a thing, person, animal, phrase, or food and create a holiday to celebrate it.

The unofficial holiday honors all made-up holidays past, present, and future and encourages people to come up with creative, quirky, offbeat, important, and significant things to celebrate, observe, and commemorate.

The holiday is also known as National Make up Your Own Holiday Day in the United States.

Special Days

A holiday is a special day during the year, when normal, day-to-day activities such as going to school or work or opening up businesses are temporarily interrupted. On these days, other activities such as visiting places of worship, preparing special meals, and decorating homes and places of businesses are encouraged.

Unofficial and Official

Holidays can be official or unofficial. Official holidays usually mean that they are sanctioned by the government. Everyone who observes the holiday usually gets the day off from work. Official holidays can be religious, like Christmas, Diwali, Yom Kippur, or Eid al-Fitr; or they can be national, like the country's independence or constitution day. Other official holidays, like New Year's Day or Labor Day, are secular holidays and can be celebrated by people of all religious faiths.

Fun and Serious Holidays

Unofficial holidays, on the other hand, are not sanctioned by the government. This means that people usually do not get a day off, nor do businesses or government offices close to celebrate or observe the holiday. Unofficial holidays can include national and global awareness holidays such as UN days, and fun holidays that celebrate trivial, unimportant, and fun things like food, movies, books, and television series.

How to Celebrate?

  • Make up your own holiday, of course! Create a holiday, spread the word and celebrate it when the day comes.
  • If you want to make it official, you may have to talk to your local representative - only an official act of the legislature or government can make a holiday a national day.

Did You Know...

...that the holiday comes from the Old English word haligdæg, meaning holy day?
