One thing we love about hashtag holidays is how many holidays involve food. While December holds many holidays with cultural significance, even more involve food. Pie, pastry, gazpacho, cookies, cotton candy–it’s all there. A particular favorite is December 13’s Ice Cream and Violins Day. You could take it literally or a tea and sympathy approach for mental health.

Last Updated: November 30, 2021 – 87 hashtag holidays

This list starts with the hashtag holidays by day, followed by the celebration months. There’s a little duplication because that’s the nature of made up holidays. Some also rotate year-to-year and we’re still working at identifying those. If you know a holiday that’s missing or we’ve made a mistake, please let us know!

Hashtag holidays with rotating dates are identified by the year. Official public holidays have the country and state, if state-based.
