These are the Elftown Holidays:
1 January - New Year
Snow, fireworks and candy
2 February - Groundhog's Day
Lots of pictures of shadows and, obviously, groundhogs?
14 February - Valentines day!!!
Time for roses and red hearts again?
1 April - April Fools day! Just do a couple of weird things... Like make an odd poll... (What colour is a banana ?) I don't know if this is possible but to make a fake front page then when they click anything on that page it goes back to the real one saying April Fools!
April (varying) - Easter
20-21 June - Summer Solstice
held on the longest day of year (this Sabbath is most of the time on the longest day of the year) a festival to celebrate the returning of the moon since the days will be shorter from then
30 OCT, computer nerd Christmas. 30 OCT = 24 DEC as you all know. And it's [Hedda
]'s mother's birthday.
31 October - 1 november - Halloween, Samhain
31 october is halloween, Samhain can also be celibrated on 1 november, Wiccan New Year
November (varying) - Thanksgiving
25 December - Christmas and yada-yada-holidays in that time
^Just a thought about Christmas:
We had a Secret Santa thing organised every year in school, where you are assigned one random person and have to give them little notes (without them finding who you are), then finally a present on Christmas day (when they finally find out who you are). Do you think it's possible to do the same for Elftown? You could have people who want to participate sign up on a list. The presents could be pictures, poems, stories... And the messages could be sent via email from an annoymous address. This way you get to know more people, and make Elftown seem like a nicer community.^
31 December - New Years Eve
Suggestions from Elftown members with dates:
3 January - Tolkien's birthday (aged 112 in 2004)
Lord of the Rings theme?
16 January - TheBarryIsCoolDay
22 January (for 2004) - Umm.. Chinese new year? Maybe a picture of the animal (I think it's a sheep/ram thing this time?) somewhere? I also think people who post on this page should mention how it might be celebrated.
^I think it was Ram last Chinese NY. It'll be Money this time. Lots of paper lanterns, and monkeys?^
It's Ram this year, my stepmum's Chinese, so she told me the zodiac. Sorry if I sound lke I'm boasting or something...

Suggestions from Elftown members without dates:
how about a day for the visitors and the crew in all elftown and elwood
How about a day for the writers of ElfTown.
How about everyone's birthdays? Each day there can be a list on the main page of Elftown members whose birthday is that day.
Pick a founding date for Elftown and celebrate it every year. :)
Weird Woods Day.... <-- ^whoever posted this made me check if there was indeed such a day... :-p^
Make up a completely new holiday and tradition. Why not? We're a new community. That way you can have a new poll asking people what the holiday should be called.
Lol, Barry is such a nerd, though Sinterklaas is an awesome idea!
I know one! Blow a raspberry day -[Augury]
how about ridvan, a yam i ha, and naw ruiz?
these happen in the spring, i'll have to check up on the actual days
well ayamiha is the last days of february and the first day of march
and then nawruiz is i thing the 21st
these are baha'i
but naw ruiz is i think also the secular new years day in iran
there are also of course buddhist, hindu, and united nations days that would be fun to have
there's a u.n. day as such
as well as world this that and the other days
and i think even a unicef day
i don't know what the buddhist and hindu days are but i think they'd be good to have
i know there's a day in india where people throw paint (wash off able presumably) at each other as a kind of way of blessing each other or something
Holi. The thing with Indian celebrations is that they don't follow the same calendar (lunar/solar), so the dates keep switching. But Diwali (international festival of light) and holi (colour-stuff) are good ideas since they're not religious per se, just cultural, and images would be really easy to do.
There is a blue moon in July...maybe we should stick up a notice?...
I like Tolkien's birthday ideas, since he inspires so many people.
What about a 'I Love Canada' day? (sorry that's random)
How about a day to celebrate everyone who's a member of Elftown and Elfpack and maybe even Cat Hug [44. Caliber Love Letter]
How about a young people day?[ketsu]
How about a Wolf day were we celebrate the wolves.
How about a day for each of the ET races?
