Here we have links to many American holidays on our Aaron website. We talk about well known holidays, such as New Year’s Day. We also talk about some unusual holidays that you may not have heard of, like Blame Someone Else Day, a fairly recent holiday that was invented in Michigan in 1982.


The word holiday comes from two separate English words being joined together. Can you guess what they are? If you guessed “holy” and “day,” you are right! Most holidays have their origins in various religions, including some ancient religions and Christianity. As society has become more and more secularized, new holidays, such as Groundhog Day and Buy Nothing Day, are developing. Some of these modern holidays that have nothing to do with religion are based on humor, such as Blame Someone Else Day. The holiday is no longer always a holy day.


We hope that you enjoy reading the pages below and that you can learn something new. Please come back now and then for new holiday pages. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please let us know. And, remember, Happy Holidays!
