Basic Information

This Category covers various types of holidays. These could be religious festivals, national observances, or generally holy days. They could be widely observed, or local customs, tied to a specific religious group or purely secular; or sometimes all of the above. Some holidays may be observed in different fashions in different location.

[note: I put down most of the "shopping holidays" I could think of that are big in the U.S. and most of the Federal holidays; It's pretty long and doesn't even touch non-American holidays; we'll probably need to divide it into sub-categories —quark]
