Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

September 12, 2010 ~ Video Game Day

I'll admit, I don't know much about video games....I'm an old timer, I remember when Pong was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Now a days there are more video games out there than Carter has little pills...(now if that doesn't tell you how old I am nothing will)
This is definitely a day for the young, and those without carpal tunnel.  My idea for the day...Moms and Dads leave the kids alone and let them veg out as much as they want to today playing their games.  If nothing else, it will keep them quiet and you'll be able to do what you want without being interrupted.

Upcoming Holidays:
September 16 - Mexican Independence day

September 19 - Talk Like a Pirate Day

September 22 - Elephant Appreciation Day

September 29 - Save the Koala Day
