I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m very thankful for the diversity of the world, which celebrates a lot more holidays than one might think. After October 31st, there are at least 29 major holidays celebrated by the world’s religions. While some people celebrate Christmas, other people celebrate Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, or none of these at all. It’s important for people to know these types of things and to be open to the idea that there are more holidays than just Christmas.
Besides the religious holidays, there are holidays all the time after October 31st. One includes Festivus, a holiday on December 23rd for people who don’t celebrate mainstream holidays. There was also World Kindness Day, celebrated on November 13th. It should be celebrated more than it is to remind people to not be jerks to one and other. National Chocolate Day and National Egg Nog Day are on December 24th, while National Chocolate Covered Anything Day is on the 16th. There is also Humbug Day on the 21st of December. There are many more, no matter what month it is.
Best wishes for a happy holiday season and a not too bitter winter! 😛
