Cultural
Holidays

Cultural holidays can be a great way to express something personal to us or to connect with a whole community. Since we live in a multicultural world, National Today has a long list of over 40 culture holidays! They celebrate cultural gatherings, days of independence, parades, and days honoring different heritages. Culture is such an important mark of who we are because it often dictates how we think, feel, laugh, and talk.
