Red face Holidays?

Okay so all of us here in America know our important holidays...

New Years Eve and Day
Presidents Day
Valentines Day
St Patricks Day
Easter/Passover
Mother's Day
Father's Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Halloween
Thanksgiving
Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa

Have I forgotten any? What about outside the US though? What are the important holidays that you celebrate?

St George's Day
Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday
4th May (Star Wars Day)
Brian Blessed Day

Divali and Ead are pretty important around where we are.

LOL.... Too F-ing funny. You DO realize that's the EXACT reason we all live over here right??

Anyway, I think this is a great thread! I'd also love to know how folk's in other countries celebrate their unknown (to us) holidays.
