I'm looking for a list of holidays or celebrations that take place within a calendar year. For example these would include mainstream holidays such as Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Halloween but it would also include obscure holidays or celebrations like Groundhog Day, Shortest month of the year, start of summer, longest day of the year, shortest day of the year ect. I'd like them in a text file listed according to the month, date and holiday. Here is an example: December 24 - Christmas Eve 25 - Christmas Day 26 - Boxing Day 31 - New Years Eve January 1 - New Years Day The more holidays and celebrations the better (even if they maybe silly). Finally, I'd also like a list of things that maybe celebrated throughout the year but not have a defined date on the calendar for everyone. These things could include birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, ect. These can simply be listed underneath the calendar celebrations. Thanks for your help!!
