Fictional Holidays

So, it turns out St. Patrick's Day is another American invention (along with spaghetti and meatballs, fortune cookies, and chop suey). I'm not really surprised...

But it got me thinking (which is why I'm posting this on a Thursday instead of this Monday. Oh, and I didn't want to spoil your celebrations. You're welcome). What a fascinating idea...

What if we could create a holiday out of whole cloth? And base it on some purported holiday from somewhere else (giving it more credence)? What sort of holiday would you create?

  1. I could always create a mass-marketed day for giving gifts to your loved ones and claim some distant relation to a saint. I mean, there's already like five of them, but one more won't hurt.
