Welcome to the Holidays Wiki! The United States has many important holidays, including Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Mother's Day, and Father's Day. This wiki's purpose is to show information about such holidays. Pre-American Julian and Gregorian years are also included on this wiki.
A history of major milestones could be found at Holidays:History.
Types of pages
Four types of pages are included on this wiki:
- Holidays, such as New Year's Day.
- Years from 45 BC (first year of the Julian calendar) until 10000, such as 2023.
- Centuries from the 1st century BC to the 100th century.
- Calendar concepts, such as Common year and Leap year.
For pages about holidays, the holiday's description is shown along with tables showing the holiday's date in various years in the past, present, and future. If the holiday occurs in the current year, then a monthly calendar linking to the other holidays in the same month will also be shown.
For pages about years, the year's calendar is shown, along with holidays, what day of the week the year starts and ends on, and links to the preceding and following years. If there is anything special about the year, or an event that is known to occur or have occurred during the year, then those will also be shown in the lead.
For pages about centuries, the century's starting and ending dates are shown, along with the number of days in the century, a table showing links to all the years in the century, and links to the preceding and following centuries.
For pages about calendar concepts, the concept is explained with a description, some examples, and possibly some other information.
It is assumed that the current holidays would continue to exist indefinitely into the future. If a source shows that a holiday would no longer exist in a future year, then the page about that holiday would be modified to show that it ceases to exist, and links to that holiday would then be removed from pages about that year and all following years. Also, if a source shows that a new holiday has been created, then a new page about that holiday would be created, and links to that holiday would then be added to pages about the holiday's creation year and all following years. Finally, if a source shows that a holiday would be renamed, then the page about that holiday would be moved to the new name and then modified to show both the old and the new names, and pages about the year that the rename would take effect and all following years would then be modified to link to the new name instead. Previous years would continue to link to the old name, which would become a redirect to the new one.
This wiki is a U.S.-centric wiki. This means that holidays celebrated in other countries will not be included on this wiki.
