So you think Congress hasn't been doing anything, eh?  Well, this page might just change your mind.  They've been busy feverishly proclaiming literally hundreds of little known, often whimsical, special days.  I have omitted the well known holidays (Valentines Day, Saint Patricks Day, Memorial Day, etc,) and the strictly religious holidays (Ash Wednesday, Passover, etc.).  You also may see some listed here that are not official, essentially those that don't begin with the word "National."  If you do find any errors or omissions, or, you become aware of a new proclamation, please contact the Web Master, and I will do my best to correct it.

Just out of curiosity, why is there a Web Mistress day but no Web Master day?  Actually, I suspect I know - it's (mostly) all men making the proclamations so a few feminine wiles can go long way toward getting what you want.

You may browse the entire list, or jump directly to a month by clicking on the month name below.  Once there, you may browse the entire month, or jump directly to a day by clicking on the date.  You can always return to the top (where you are now) by clicking on the "Return to Top" just below the month name (and at the end of the file).
