Make Your Own Holiday Day

When : Always March 26th

Make Your Own Holiday Day allows you to make today a special day for anything you want. The objective of today, is to allow one day for any topic or event that has otherwise escaped recognition... up to now.

We didn't create this day. But, we are glad its here. Many visitors have inquired as to how to create a holiday or special day. It's not easy, and it's even more difficult to create a truly national day.

Today, is your day to skip all of the red tape, bypass all of the effort, and create a special day of any kind. Simply declare your special day on Make Your Own Holiday Day!

Origin of "Make Your Own Holiday Day":
This day appears to have been created by the Wellness Permission League. However, we have not yet found their website, or more information.
