9 Fictional Holidays That Need to Become Official, from Festivus to Chrismukkah

By Caitlin Morton |

Did you know that today is National Roast Suckling Pig Day? And December 25 isn’t just a day to celebrate Christmas — it also happens to be National Pumpkin Pie Day. If you look hard enough, you can find a day of the year set aside to celebrate every animal, hobby, and food under the sun. (I’m personally quite proud to share my birthday with National Chocolate Eclair Day — yum!)

Among the hundreds of widely and not-so-widely practiced holidays in the world, there are some that only exist in the wonderful realm of television. For some reason, inventing fictional holidays has become something of a staple amongst TV writers — and we aren’t complaining. Even though we have all of our wonderfully weird holidays out here in the real world, some of these televised festivities seem like so much fun, we can’t help but feel a little jealous. And while some of these make-believe practices do eventually infiltrate the real world (hello, Festivus!), there are still a bunch that need to earn a permanent spot on the calendar.

Check out these celebrations we wish we could take part of in real life.
