What is the significance of July holidays?

July is named after Julius Caesar — a Roman general and influential senator who was (literally) stabbed in the back by his best friend, Brutus, when Caesar got too powerful. Our July calendar contains lots of ways to celebrate this summer-kissed month—and most importantly, none of them involve any backstabbing.

What are some memorable July holiday moments?

Did you know the average American has 8 cousins? That's as good a reason to celebrate National Cousins Day (July 24) as any! The rest of the extended family gets their July holidays too—July 26 is National Aunt and Uncle Day. Even friends get to join the fun on International Day of Friendship (July 30).

We wait all year at National Today to celebrate World Emoji Day (July 17)—the date that matches up with the calendar emoji on our iPhones. We're also pumped to celebrate our favorite glammed-up national day in July: National Lipstick Day (July 29). And who could forget about July 4?

Our July calendar includes an ode to the best food in America: get ready for National Ice Cream Day on July 16! For more sweets, check out Free Slurpee Day (July 11) and National Junk Food Day (July 21). Looking for July holidays with some savory goodness? National French Fry Day (July 13) is just what the doctor ordered.

Scotch accounts for an entire quarter's of the UK exports—celebrate on National Scotch Day (July 27)! And, if you like pina coladas (and getting caught in the rain), enjoy National Pina Colada Day on July 10.
