We love our holidays. From Independence Day to Thanksgiving Day, our national holidays give us time to break from routine, celebrate with friends or family, and pause to appreciate a moment of tradition.
But beyond the traditional, there are a whole host of random "National Holidays" that have yet to rise to the occasion of a true day off. These celebrate everything from types of food to hobbies, from everyday items (Pockets, Collars, Sleeves and Zippers Day, anyone?) to just about anything else.
These aren't official, no, but they're certainly no less exciting! Sometimes they're just an opportunity for companies to market their products (National Raisin Day), or for people to celebrate something very specific they enjoy, like National Talk Like a Pirate Day (arrrrg). But you might find a few worth celebrating in this list of some of our favorite wacky national holidays.
