Day for the Peculiar
One interesting day to celebrate is the Peculiar People Day. This day is celebrated to honor people in your life that are interesting or unique.

A Day for the Horror Lovers
Friday the 13 falls every so often. There are times when it falls in January, but there are other times when it falls in April, October, July, March, December, September, or November. Your job is to keep track of these days in the current year. There is no telling what kind of horror-infused parties you can think of, but it is a great day to celebrate horror without waiting for Halloween.
A Geek Day for Star Wars
May 4 is a very special day for all those who love Star Wars and anything related to science fiction. The day was chosen because of a famous line from the Star Wars universe that says, “May the force be with you.” Obviously, the ‘force’ is substituted by the ‘fourth,’ which is the reason this month and day was chosen. It would be great to say that you can celebrate this day by going to the movies to see the latest Star Wars movie, but a new movie is probably not coming out every year, so perhaps you can just host a viewing party or something similar.
