With Black Friday becoming global, it’s easier to forget that not all the world celebrates Thanksgiving, or that it’s even Fall/Autumn. Fortunately, there are many other hashtag holidays to celebrate—and two in November include cake.

Last updated: January 17, 2021 – 210 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.
