October 14 - International Festival of Festivals

It's that time of year again when we get to celebrate every single holiday, observance, festival and feast... all at once.
Fast for Ramadan and eat Thanksgiving dinner at the same time! Celebrate the conception, birth, death and resurrection of Christ simultaneously! Eat some Easter ham at a Passover Seder!

Oh, think of all the presents you'll receive for Christmas, Hanukkah, St. Nicholas Day, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Administrative Assistant's Day, Saturnalia and Three King's Day! A river of Marshmallow Peeps and candy canes and candy corn! An ocean of chocolates!

And if you party too hearty on Naw-Ruz, Samhain, Rish Nissanu, Rosh Hashana, New Year's, Chinese New Year's, Hola Mohalla, Norouz, Hogmanay, St. Patrick's Day, or Mardi Gras, your're lucky because Yom Kipur is right there for you too.
