With over 140 — yes, you read that right — holidays to celebrate in our Special Interest category, there’s absolutely something for everyone. The name says it all: Special interests allow us to consider things we really enjoy, then use holidays as an excuse to celebrate them. This includes all sorts of hobbies, events, happenings, toys, and trinkets. No matter what you love, there’s bound to be a holiday that champions it. Don’t see one? Create your own! Send it to us, and we may feature it on our page.
Where did special interest holidays come from?
These celebrations come from all over the world. Simply put, if you like it, we celebrate it! At National Today, we keep track of what people like doing and celebrating. There’s no judgement, no matter how crazy it sounds.
So what if you like celebrating Awkward Moments Day (March 18) because you enjoy the occasional uncomfortable encounter with a friend or a complete stranger. Maybe you love National Promposals Day (March 11) because you have watched endless flash mobs and other extreme methods of asking someone to prom on YouTube. We think celebrating promposals is sweet and romantic!
Hey, we’re totally with you if you think your love for doing puzzles is worth an annual celebration. National Puzzles day (January 29) is definitely on our list, as is National Stickers Day (January 13). There are so many cute ones worth collecting and scrapbooking to look back on.
National Bobblehead Day, National Bubble Bath day, National Yo-Yo Day, International Joke Day, World Social Media Day, Still Need to Do Day … the list is crazier than it sounds. And it’s such fun! We urge you to look it up and get hooked. Get a bunch of friends together and start your celebration.
