Lesser-Known Holidays

In my home, we love the holidays. Everything from Christmas to Easter to New Year’s Day to New Year’s Eve to Flag Day to Labor Day to the 4th of July to Memorial Day to Martin Luther King, Jr Day to Christopher Columbus Day to Cesar Chavez Day to Valentine’s Day to Mother’s Day to Father’s Day to Secretary Day to Passover to St. Patrick’s Day to Hanukkah to Ramadan. We love them all. But did you know that there are many, many other holidays out there that most of us have never heard of? Learn them, and become a more knowledgeable, culturally sensitive person:
