Holiday In Free Country

Holidays are a big part of Free Country, USA, with holidays such as Mother's Day and Flag Day. Some of the more prevalent holidays are unlikely choices, such as April Fool's Day and Labor Day, also known as Labor Dabor. The most celebrated holidays however, are Halloween and Decemberween, the latter of which is a parody of Christmas, possibly created for viewers of other religions.

Holidays

New Year's Day (January 1st)

A day to set goals for the next year, with no intention whatsoever of following them.

Super Bowl/The Big Game (last Sunday in January or first Sunday in February)

A day of rest, of putting off until tomorrow what you could do today.

Valentine's Day (Febuary 14th)

A depressing time for Strong Sad, and possibly even Strong Bad, Valentine's Day is the day the citizens of Free Country USA realize just how empty their lives really are.

April Fool's Day (April 1st)

A time of tomfoolery for Homestar Runner.

Cheatday (April 18th)

Free Country's biggest birthday bash is Cheatday.

Birthdays

General birthday references also abound. All of these toons mention someone's "birthday".

Mother's Day (second Sunday in May)

A day to recognize the hard work of the women who never have, and likely never will, appear in Free Country USA.

Senorial Day (last Monday in May)

A day that seems to correspond to Memorial Day. Apparently, all the big stores in town (at least, Senor Cardgage's and Bubs') have sales that weekend.

Flag Day (June 14th)

A day to proudly raise the Strongbadia flag, and sing along to the Strongbadia national anthem.

Fourth of July/Independence Day (July 4th)

A time of patriotism, retrospect, and, of course, fireworks.

Labor Day (first Monday in September)

Labor Day (aka Labor-Dabor) is a day of no work, enforced by the Homestarmy.

Halloween (October 31st)

A popular holiday in Free Country. The main characters are always seen in a different costume at this time.

Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday in November)

A time of feasting and reminiscing.

*Strong Bad is asked if he celebrates Thanksgiving, but tells us about his own Thanksgiving-like holiday.

Decemberween (December 25th)

A strange made-up holiday that takes place 55 days after Halloween. It is no doubt parodying Christmas, or avoiding religious issues for the non-Christian audiences.
