The strangest holidays don’t necessarily come from strange beginnings. Sometimes it’s just some people having an idea and executing. While everyone is familiar with Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and the New Year, there are numerous not-so-famous holidays celebrated every single day all over the world. And why not? We all work hard. A few days off near the end of the year just isn’t enough. So, people in the U.S. and abroad agreed at some point to create some new celebrations. As you might expect, most of the time, the celebration is relatively straight forward. People eat, drink, and dance. You know, holiday stuff.
But, you might be asking what makes a holiday “strange”? Aren’t popular holidays strange, too? Take Easter. How rabbits and eggs have anything to do with Christ’s resurrection is a mystery to me. But, I got news for you, Easter doesn’t come close to some of these. Things get a whole lot weirder from here. Whether it involves feeding starving monkeys or drenching yourself with smashed tomatoes, these are the 25 strangest holidays that people actually celebrate.
