15 Nationally Recognized ‘Holidays’ You Won’t Believe

Happy National Cheesecake Day (July 30) — and check out the other delicious items that are really on the 'calendar,' too


Chances are you’ve already noticed there’s a holiday for 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 — July 30, 2019 — is National Cheesecake Day (yum!).

Can’t make it up!


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

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

1.) National Relaxation Day.


This “holiday” is celebrated on August 15, and, as the folks at National Calendar Day say, “It is time to slow down, unwind and relax!” (Hey, thanks.) “We all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live … Taking time to recuperate and rejuvenate our tired minds and bodies may help prevent many health risks.”
