It's only fake if there isn't a Hallmark card
 
2012-07-01 11:52:28 AM

Cool.
On my birthday I'm going to get a free slurpee, then hang out at an abortion clinic.

July 19: National Flitch Day

I'm going to have a big party and put it on the Underhills' tab.

/it's all ball bearings nowadays

July 14th will be nowhere near as entertaining as we would like it to be

They forgot the Australian July celebration - "Christmas in July".

Because Christmas is a mid-winter celebration, and Christmas in December is so fracking hot that it's ridiculous, there is also Christmas in July. People get together and eat turkey and all the trimmings and pretend, just for a while, that they live in a sensible hemisphere.

July 1st: Gough and Ms. Gough's wedding anniversary. I've been scrambling to find some rubies for the last 24 hours... every since I learned that that's the stone to celebrate 40 years of wedded bliss. OTOH, she's been telling people that we've been married for 35 wonderful years. She can do the math OK, she's just on the fence about '75, '76, '98, '01, and '06.
 
2012-07-01 12:12:25 PM
How about this one?
 
2012-07-01 12:16:02 PM
if you use the right menu you can incorporate several days of festivity into the teddy bear picnic day. i won't, but you can.
 
2012-07-01 12:21:09 PM
July 4th.

The myth of freedom and independence.
 
2012-07-01 12:22:30 PM
what about the 865th aniversary of the Battle of Hattin!

the crusader army of the Kingdom of Jerusalem goes to one of the greatest defeats and worst planned military adventures in History!
 
2012-07-01 12:31:56 PM
No Christmas in July?
 
2012-07-01 12:32:53 PM
My birthday's the 14th. It's about as fake a holiday as you can get :P

/got a big cupcake from a co-worker last year..
//all I've had in a while
///sucks being a douche sometimes
 
2012-07-01 12:37:20 PM
If I want a fake holiday, I'll stick with President's Day. Except here in MA, when it is on May 28.
 
2012-07-01 12:38:54 PM
July 14: National Nude Day sounds like a great idea - but ONLY for me and hot chics.
 
2012-07-01 12:39:56 PM
I'm totally down with "July 6: International Kissing Day," but I'm leery of "July 14: National Nude Day." Not EVERYONE who goes nude SHOULD.
 
2012-07-01 12:40:53 PM
I hope national nude day falls on a weekend.
 
2012-07-01 12:49:56 PM

Mr. Potatoass: Cool.

I get creatively flavored ice cream :-)

Today is mine.

There is one I wish to try. It's cinnamon and honey. Made by Snoqualmie Ice Cream. They also make Mukilteo Mud. Yum!
 
2012-07-01 12:53:29 PM
Ummmmm... July 15?

Saint Swithin's Day?

Any body?

Yep, those poor Aussies who get to go to the beach in December. I'm crying on the inside for them.
 
2012-07-01 12:58:24 PM
Cool. Some fellow Bastille-birthdayites. Let's get naked and guillotine someone. Carefully.
 
2012-07-01 01:07:06 PM
Direct quote from my wife about "International Kissing Day" when I told her it starting in the United Kingdom, "It was started by old creepy guys who just wanted an excuse to kiss the young guys, as Britian is all about the buggery."

In my neck of the woods 7/11 bought out a local chain of shiatty corners stores. I just might a huge brain freeze. I may also go to the abortion clinc too and hand out clothes hangers to the resident protesters.

I'd just rather shoot them

My birthday is enough of a holiday in july :)
 
2012-07-01 01:48:47 PM
I hope I don't miss Free Slurpee day again this year.

Let's not forget the end of the world on July 5th.

Of course X-Day is actually July 5th, 1998. As it didn't happen the calendars are obviously screwed up and the real X-Day could come on any day...

The world ends tomorrow and YOU MAY DIE!

I thought Bob read the date wrong and it's actually in 8661.

Oh good. I was afraid I was going to have to wait all the way until 21st December

penthesilea: My son's birthday is 2 days before Christmas so we celebrate his half birthday instead.


My kid's birthday is going to be sometime in mid December when it's done. Once it's a bit older, I fully plan to have massive half birthday celebrations in July.

What a day that was, we had a hell of a party, then killed Bob. X-Day is X-Day. Always has been and always will be.

/ Pinks everywhere now, horrible times
 
2012-07-01 03:11:07 PM

Dothead Dancing Day. They are celebrating the invention of the Slurpee (an Indian name if there ever was one) and the magic fingers bed

"Bob" was assassinated in San Francisco on Janurary 31, 1984 but it didn't stop him from coming back so we could kill him all over again and again and again...

He's the high epopt that keeps on giving!

Lol I like Mrs Gough already.

Is it a mere coincidence that July 14 is also the date of two Fark parties?
 
2012-07-01 11:32:47 PM
This (American) list recognizes Bastille Day, but forgets about Canada (Canada Day, July 1).
How very typically American.
Except for recognizing ANY other country. Did the frogs French have pictures of Uncle Sam in a compromising position with Lady Liberty?

My B-day is on National Flitch Day. Bring on the Bacon!!!!

There's no such thing as a fake holiday. To those who celebrate it, even in jest, it is a holiday.
