Weird National
Holidays

America is a bit of an odd nation, so it’s no wonder it has so many weird national holidays. Enjoy our collection of the most weird, bizarre, and random American celebrations out there — like National Cat Herder Day (Dec 15), National Cook For Your Pets Day (Nov 1), and—our favorite—National Feral Cat Day (Oct 16).
