Yes, yes there is.
How is celebrating Germanic brewing a problem?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with a country celebrating something from another country. 'less you see Cinco de Mayo the same way.
Today, we've got seven holidays.
Noodle Ring Day
Worldwide Candle Lighting Day
World Choral Day
International Mountain Day
Admission Day (Indiana)
National Day (Burkina Faso)
Noodle Ring Day celebrates a not-so-known food that's pretty damn delicious, but hasn't been a popular food for quite some time. It's real simple to make, too; mix noodles, beat eggs, cheese, and whatever else you see fit molded into a ring, and bake. Done right, you get something that looks as delicious as this.
Worldwide Candle Lighting Day is in remembrance of all children that died unable to live life to the fullest, regardless of cause. Light a candle and offer a prayer... or something like that. Call me a heartless douche, but this holiday is plain stupid to not honor all the dead, children aren't the only ones to lead unfulfilled lives or unfair deaths. =/ GTFO!
World Choral Day is basically World Peace Day; except instead of advocating just peace, WCD advocates said peace through the power of song. Although, vocals are the least important piece of music to people who can't understand the language in question, so... it's just a tad contradictory.
International Mountain Day celebrates the towering landmasses because they're awesome. They give us ores, crops that only grow well at high altitudes, and are an incredibly important source of fresh water; especially for certain undeveloped civilizations that entirely depend on mountain water. Not to mention they're fun to climb; if you think dangling from a rope and freezing to near-death (not always just near...) is fun, anyways.
UNICEF's Anniversary; 'nuff said. I discussed it back around Halloween more than enough.
Indiana's Admission Day celebrates the state as the 19th to join the US, back in 1816. Thrilling.
Burkina Faso's National Day celebrates the same date in 1984, when the country's previous name, the Republic of Upper Volta, was changed to it's current one. Prior to the change in name they already had independence, but it's previous name was a reminder of it's colonial history, so they decided to commemorate their freedom with a new name.
Sorry for the late post. Assassin's Creed... does that to me.
Today, we've got six holidays and one birthday.
Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Constitution Day (Russia)
Neutrality Day (Turkmenistan)
Frank Sinatra's Birthday
Ambrosia Day celebrates the cure for that horrid pandemic the food which is named after a piece of Greek mythology, in which the food of the gods is often referred to as ambrosia. But it's anything but the food of the gods; it's the food of fat Americans. Take a fruit salad and **** it up with whipped cream, sour cream (WHAT?!), and marshmallows. Blehhhhh... ... ... DO NOT WANT!
Ding-a-Ling Day is a day of song...
Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe is some 1500's Mexican peasant's excuse to have a church built. Damn you Christianity and all your feast day... I thought gluttony was a sin, damnit!
Poinsettia Day celebrates that all-too common winter flower people are buying during the times of happy holidays; y'know, that red one. Rightfully being popular during the holidays, the gift of this flower to another in the language of flowers means to be of good cheer. I've been sick of seeing it for years, though...
After the Soviet Union collapsed under it's own commie stupidity, times were already a-changin' at the end of the 20th century. Three years after communist bastards had to pack up and get out (1993), Russia had finally made it's first fair constitution (it had one after it's Czar-based monarchy was overthrown, but that constitution is what gave the communist government power...). And thus you get Russia's Constitution Day.
Turkmenistan's Neutrality Day celebrates the same day in 1995 where Turkmenistan's permanent neutrality was approved by the Great Assembly. Permanent neutrality 99% ensures a nation's peace (that 1% is for when the next Hitler shows up and uses every country as a stepping stone towards world domination, of course!) and tranquility, and obviously keeps foreign political relationships very relaxed. Certainly nothin' wrong with neutrality.
Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra, "Chairman of the Board". A musical genius who blessed the swing era with charisma and talent in equally infinite doses. There's a reason he had close ties to multiple presidents, was honored and praised by countless other famous musicians (ohai Elton John), and was the most famous and respected American singer, IMO. Do yourself a damn favor and look up a bunch of his junk (and by a bunch, I mean all of it) on youtube if you haven't already. You won't regret it. In memory of ol' blue eyes, Sinatra's birthday gets my pick of the day.
ARE YA YOUTUBE-ING YET?!
