A holiday is a special day set aside to mark a special event or to honor a famous person. Religious groups have holidays too. In fact, the word “holiday” is derived from “holy day”—a day to offer prayers or celebrate a religious event.
Today holidays include many holy days. There are also many anniversaries, such as the anniversary of the founding of a country and the birthdays of its heroes. And many other kinds of holidays are observed around the world. There are days that mark the passing of the seasons, days for visiting relatives, and days for remembering our ancestors.
