Crafts for Every Holiday

Other Holidays to Investigate
I don't have room to cover all the possibilities when it comes to holidays and special occasions throughout the year and the crafts and foods associated with them, but I believe I've got you well on your way. Here are few more holidays to investigate:
Martin Luther King day: Third Monday in January
Chinese New Year: Date changes year to year on Western calendar
Cinco de Mayo: May 5
Flag Day: June 14
Midsummer's Night's Eve: June 23 in most countries
Bastille Day: July 14
Grandparents' Day: Second Sunday in September
All Soul's Day: November 2
Martinmas: November 11
Jewish Holy Days and festivals throughout the year
Another holiday we celebrate in our family is Appreciation Day. This can be held at any time and celebrated in any way. It simply focuses on one individual who's gone above and beyond in some way or who's simply been neglected during the year. It can even be Doggy or Kitty Appreciation Day, when we give recognition and attention to our favorite animal companions.
