15 Nationally Recognized ‘Holidays’ You Won’t Believe

Today is really National Pancake Day — and these other beauties are really on the 'calendar,' too

Chances are you’ve already noticed there’s a holiday for just about everything — or maybe you haven’t noticed, since you likely have better things to do.

These “holidays” flood our calendars each year, and some people can only celebrate so much.

For example, today — March 12, 2019 — is National Pancake Day. People are passionate about their stacks of pancakes!

There’s also Fruitcake Toss Day (January 3), Absolutely Incredible Kid Day (March 15), National Something on a Stick Day (March 28), Wear Pajamas to Work Day (April 16), World Kissing Day (July 6), Wife Appreciation Day (September 16) — and oh so many more.

While all of this is a ton of fun, it also means your birthday isn’t really special anymore because you probably share it with National Tin Can Day.
