What is a Holiday?
A holiday in many parts of the world is a synonym for a vacation or a specific trip for the purpose of recreation or tourism, but in the United States of America, it is considered to be a day designated as having special significance for which individuals, a government, or a religious group have deemed that observance is warranted. It is generally an official (more common) or unofficial observance of religious, national, or cultural significance, often accompanied by celebrations or festivities. A holiday does not necessarily exclude doing normal work: the relatively minor Jewish holiday of Chanukah has been described as a "working holiday" and those who celebrate a holiday such as Diwali may have to work a normal schedule in countries where it is not a public holiday.

I struck gold once again today while researching the Internet for this article! Mrs. Muddle's Holiday website is a wonderful site to spend some time reviewing about all sorts of holidays. She also provides some excellent insight on creating your own holiday.
What would be your Holiday and how would you celebrate it?
