Default The Big TR Holiday Thread

This is where TalkRats can wish each other a blessed and joyous ______, where you can fill in the blank with any existing holiday from any religious tradition whatsoever. Because ya never know, there may be someone here who celebrates it.

Today is the Aga Khan's birthday! So to all you Ismā'īlī Muslims out there, have fun!

And happy St. Lucy's day, for those of you who are fans of the "queen of light". (I hear "Luciadagen" is a fairly big thing in Sweden.)

Is that the day we remember one group of Micmac homeland invaders expelled another group of Micmac homeland invaders, and shipped them off to Louisiana?

It seems to be more specifically about those who died in the process of being shipped somewhere:

December 14th.

Joyous Day of the Martyred Intellectuals (Bangladesh)

Quote:
On 14 December 1971, over 200 of East Pakistan's intellectuals including professors, journalists, doctors, artists, engineers, and writers were picked up from their homes in Dhaka by the Al-Badr militias and Pakistani Army. They were taken blindfolded to torture cells in Mirpur, Mohammadpur, Nakhalpara, Rajarbagh and other locations in different sections of the city. Later they were executed en masse, most notably at Rayerbazar and Mirpur. In memory of the martyred intellectuals, December 14 is mourned in Bangladesh as Shaheed Buddhijibi Dibosh ("Day of the Martyred Intellectuals").

The first time I had bouillabaisse was when I was like 10 at some restaurant in the Fisherman's Wharf. I ate chicken legs in Chinatown too!

True story.

I hear that December 15 is "Bill of Rights Day" in the US. Does this day get any attention at all, in practice?

December 15, 1968
Philadelphia Eagles fans boo Santa Claus

Quote:
The incident took place at halftime of the final home game for the Eagles. The team was awful and the owners had planned a large Christmas celebration at halftime. However, the celebration was cancelled due to the snow. Instead, a young man in a Santa suit came out to entertain at halftime. The Eagles fans took out their frustrations by booing.

Today is sort of a holiday, a certain Internet celebrity that I follow has a trial in about two hours.

In practice, not too much.

It's also National Lemon Cupcake Day

That one may not get much attention either.

Friiig.

I chose my holiday travel dates very poorly. I'm missing like 50 things I would have wanted to do. I'll be back for new years, though.

Most Americans don't even like the Bill of Rights.
