Top 10 Worst Holidays

The Top Ten
1 Valentine's Day

It's so pointless. Like why do we need one day to show our love to our lovers? It sucks if you're single, but it's the absolute worst if your crush already has a valentine.

Same to me, I actually enjoy Valentine's Day, just to relax. It was on the weekend. But during the weekend, when I was relaxing, my mother said that my uncle's wedding was happening on Valentine's Day. So we went on a long drive to Vermont to go to an old barn where the wedding was happening. Soon enough, my uncle unfortunately chose me to be the wedding singer and the song he picked was "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" since he was a huge fan of Air Supply. So when the song played during the reception, I sang it in front of everyone and my voice cracked during the bridge, and everyone laughed at me. As if Valentine's Day wasn't stupid enough for me, I had to actually go to a wedding to experience it and it was not fun.

I actually enjoy Valentine's Day, but in 2016-17, it just was terrible, not because something happened to me but to two kids in my class.
The day before Valentine's day, we all wrote these poems and this girl named Rebecca for some odd reason wrote one about another kid in our class named Dante. They're both in the same grade. Anyways, everyone started jokingly assuming that they were in love with each other.
Then it all got so weird on the actual day! Both Rebecca and Dante didn't come to school on Valentine's day so I knew where this was going. All at once, people started assuming that they were on some date together, and then Dante enters class, late and everyone is all, "where's your girlfriend, Rebecca?" then he's all, "Shut up." and then Rebecca comes a little later than Dante. But then it started to get to the point where it stretched till after lunch recess. Someone once again made another joke mocking Dante on his so-called relationship with Rebecca and then Dante tells ...more

I hate February with all my heart, because of this holiday. I'm 18. A grown man, and STILL, I dread Valentine's Day because I know what won't happen, and hasn't happened since elementary school, and that's only because we were REQUIRED to give out Valentines. I've had a crush on the same girl for three years. I'm not exactly the outgoing type, but I sent her a little gift and stayed anonymous, and I'm betting my job that some jackass took the credit for it. If I could, I'd wipe this holiday right off the calendar. Not just because I never get anything out of it, but my dad is blind to romance, and since I'm about 38% Italian, I'm not and I have to advise HIM on something that he should've learned himself, and it's just one long unrewarding day that I always get my hopes up on, but end up doing the same trash, without anybody outside of my family saying that they even LIKE me in a non romantic way. I loathe this day more than I loathe being called Donald Duck. I keep it all inside, and ...more

2 Black Friday

Bloody Friday is what it should be called instead. Instead of hanging out with your family for Thanksgiving, you have to camp outside of a GameStop or Target to go absolute ape the next day over discounts! Seriously, I would picture Black Friday customers as screeching chimpanzees. One crisp autumn day in 2008, I saw a discount for a Nintendo Wii. I didn't have one yet. On the day before Thanksgiving, I camped outside of the store, in the middle of the woods, in the freezing cold. The only interesting things I saw were wild deer and turkeys. The next day, I went to the store, and I was pushed back by the mob. I should have saved up for a Wii...

Pointless, stupid, and dangerous so called "holiday" more like excuse just to get so many people crammed in stores so that they can have a lot of their products purchased. All this is just about is discounts and hordes of people fighting in stores. This encourages people to act like wild animals and camp in front of stores just to get the discounted TV. This should be #1 on the worst holidays and this "holiday" should no longer exist. All this is doing is making people insane rather than thankful.

I hate how people go crazy for Black Friday. They will literally camp out the night before in front of a store just to be the first to enter it in the morning! And worst of all, many people will fight to get in a store, which can lead to injuries. It's the day after Thanksgiving, right? Then in that case, people should be spending time with family, not going crazy trying to get into a store.

Why is this even considered a holiday? It's so pointless. All you hear about on Black Friday is deals deals deals, people camping out in front of malls or in front of Wal Mart and people trampeling each other at 5 AM to get pointless stuff all because there's bargains on it for 1 day out of the year. What bugs me most is that people have to act aggressive toward one another because they want that discounted T.V.. Seriously, sooo stupid and shouldn't be a holiday at all.

3 April Fools' Day

This isn't a holiday either, and in my opinion, it could be a really fun day, but a lot of people like to ruin it by taking their pranks too far, so I'm always dreading this day.

I hate it. People take it too far (even on T.V. too!) like in spongebob where squidward pulled that cruel prank on spongebob or in the loud house where Luan takes it WAY too far or in Teen Titans Go where they pull pranks similar to Luan's. The point is that everyone acts like a dick on this day.

All my friends ditched me and spread rumors about me. Those rumors got me suspended. When I came back, they were saying it was a joke. I no longer talk to them.

Just pisses people off. On a plane, they celebrate April Fools' Day, by just making the people sit in a very hot or very cold area longer, for no good reason.

4 Lent

Weird name, painful traditions.

I feel sorry for anyone that's forced to celebrate this.

Lent. Seems more like Lint to start a fire

5 Republic Day

What does Hanukkah have to do with republic day?

What do even do

6 Columbus Day

Even in my town, they renamed Columbus Day to "Native American Appreciation Day" and they had a statue of Christopher Columbus (Cristoforo Colombo) removed, due to the holiday's dark past, as it's about some guy who was born to a family of weavers (or was he?) during the late Middle Ages/early Renaissance who didn't even discover the Americas in the first place, Leif Erikson and the Vikings were the first Europeans to set foot on the New World. And he basically acted like a genocidal maniac when he ordered his men to enslave and kill the native population that lived on the islands. Whether his origin story was made up or not, it's not surprising that Columbus was an absolute madman who didn't really discover the Americas in the first place.

Only a complete challenged idiot would unironically believe that Columbus brought civilization to the New World, especially since there were already entire indigenous civilizations in the Americas thousands of years before this child-loving Italian doofus even set foot there.

Everyone who still idolizes this idiot to this day deserves a good bullet to the face, as white supremacists shouldn't be allowed to breathe!

This is an extremely disgusting holiday since Christopher Columbus did a lot of bad things. How can some Americans celebrate such a holiday with slavery? This is greatest shame! I will definitely pour 98% of the sulphuric acid to Columbus Day and destroy it completely! I will smash Columbus Day to death and crash it into pieces!

Christopher Columbus is a dog fece bastard! If I had met him personally, I would use hammer to smash him head to death, dissolve his body by sodium hydroxide and destroy his bone by sulphuric acid! I would definitely smash Christopher Columbus into pieces and destroy his body without any remaining.

7 Boxing Day

Why does this holiday even exist? It basically serves as a sad reminder that Christmas is over for everyone, even for people that don't celebrate Christmas (I have some friends that celebrate Hanukkah.). It also serves as a massive sales day for stores, as well... and that's about it. Boxing Day really makes you think the next year will suck, or that it'll be a good one.

This is a boring holiday, it makes me wonder... Why is there boxing day, but no NASCAR day, baseball day, football day, heck, even rugby day, Looney Tunes Day, Mickey Mouse day and even Jimmy Neutron Day would work better than Boxing.

It's literally just the first day after Christmas: 26th december. Why does it need a name?

At first I literally thought this was a specific holiday for "boxers". Guess I was wrong.

8 Halloween

I think one thing I mostly don't like about Halloween is how over-commercialized and the holiday is. I still enjoy and love the holiday like a lot of other people, but you have to admit, the consumerist nature of the holiday is very similar to Christmas in some ways. As someone who lives in a rural area, you would get decorations hanging from barns and fences, people wearing "Nightmare Before Christmas" (I love this movie, but still) apparel and much more. One time, I tried a pumpkin-flavored Blizzard at a local Dairy Queen and it tasted horrible, but no offense to anyone who likes the stuff. Even at the farm that I work at, everyone seems to get into the Halloween spirit. I think staying indoors and rewatching the older Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes and South Park's Pinkeye episode would be more comfortable to me, that way I can celebrate Halloween and feel safe.

Don't get me wrong, I like Halloween. I just like the atmosphere of it, with streets aglow with Halloween decorations at night. It's quite beautiful, as you can see. But, when you're too old to go trick-or-treating, you just have to keep yourself entertained by doing something Halloween-related, like how I watched Shaun Of The Dead on the night of Halloween. And once those trick-or-treaters are gone, you can just have the candy for yourself. Make sure you don't get sick, or as I like to call it, the "November 1st Hangover". It's a good holiday, but it's kind of lonely when you are alone in your house, watching horror movies by yourself.

I always dread this day. Don't get me wrong I LOVE October, it's a beautiful month. But Halloween just ruins what is otherwise a great month. Halloween costumes are just absolutely ridiculous and make people (adults specifically) look like complete and utter jokes. I'm fine with a kid dressing up because they're kids and they like to have fun but adults?! No. Just no. Plus what is the point of Halloween?! To go up to random houses and ask for a sugar rush? Some holiday. I'm not even gonna bother with it this year. I'll keep my pumpkin uncarved so that I can display it for Thanksgiving (which is so much better than Halloween). Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and July 4th for life.

Not really a bad holiday, just extremely overrated and so childish in my opinion. You should stop going trick or treating sometime when you're a pre-teen. Plus, I just don't get the point when you can BUY candy. And Christmas can't be overrated, it's the most important because It's Jesus's birthday, plus, Christmas is the most loved holiday, most (and myself) think it's the best holiday and better than Birthdays.

9 Wiggle Your Toes Day

Yes, it's a holiday. This is by far the most pointless holiday ever. I mean, seriously. Wiggle your toe day? Who thought this would actually be cool?

Should be higher on the list, what is the point of this? You can wiggle your toes everyday, so why a holiday? This is just lame and not cool.

One of DeviantArt's favorite holidays. If anything they are the ones who made it.

This sounds like a holiday made by Dan Schneider, the feet addicted man.

10 Hanukkah

Hanukkah is not one of the biggest Jewish holidays, but you just have a serious reputation to some Jewish things. I'm not religious, but I celebrate Christmas still because my family is. Don't do this kind of thing.

Even though I live in Israel, I still don't celebrate it because it's lame.

This holiday was created because they were jealous of Christmas.

Why don't they celebrate Christmas like everyone else? they are so boring.

The Contenders
11 St. Patrick's Day

you have to wear green whether you celebrate it or not that is what I always feel. Because when I don't wear green and don't celebrate it people don't care they just pinch me.

You have to wear green, even shrek has to wear green, stupid. It would also be considered child abuse to babies who are more sensitive and can be done even when they are taking a bath. The traditional Irish version I can understand, but bringing it to America is just dumb.

This can be really fun, you know. Just creative some of your own traditions that connect to the holiday! Something I love to do with all of these! Makes it way better. Don't wait for it to fun for you.

The amount of times I've been pinched for not wearing green. I also don't get why people who have no Irish background whatsoever celebrate this holiday

12 Easter

When I was little, it was more enjoyed. It was like Christmas 2.0. I'd get a lot of candy, and something that couldn't be consumed in 5 minutes, like a movie. Between the lack of that, the unhealthines of it, my allergies flaring up and my dad explaining the pagan origins of Easter, it became more of a burden.

What you do on Easter:
1. Do some Easter egg hunt, but ONLY if you're a little kid or you have a young sibling playing an Easter egg hunt

Well let's see, I'm an only child, so no.

2. Go to church for 5 hours.

Yeah no.

This holiday is garbage.

I absolutely LOATHE this holy day because it is just a yearly reminder that I along with 90% of the world will go to Hell forever and be tortured forever in gods/Jesus Christ's pleasure.

What I like about Easter is the fact that Jesus died for us and it's about spending quality time with family and friends.

But, the lame part is the Easter Bunny and eggs part. It was ok for me when I was little

13 Flag Day

Why do we need to have a holiday dedicated to a piece of cloth... I mean, seriously, even as a Six Flags fan I don't celebrate "Happy Kingda Ka crest day"

Fellow Americans, why? This holiday is just us worshipping a symbol. Do Broncos players worship horses? No.

Why do American's have this undying love and sense of duty to a piece of cloth?

It's about being us and being able to do things that other people can't do

14 Christmas

Christmas is to commercialized and it ruins thanksgiving and Christmas. It's the only known holiday of the year because of money and ads. The ads are so bad that its displayed too much all the time. On the radio I can't hardly avoid it because I change the channel. But on youtube they display it so much I had to pay for youtube premium account to avoid the commercials all together.They've become more and more annoying as the years go by the point it's a headache. I don't want to hear Christmas songs before thanksgiving or around halloween.

Jesus wasn't born on Christmas! They moved the date, it was really a pagan holiday were people got drunk, naked, and killed Jews for fun. They pretend it is Jesus birthday because they wanted and excuse to party. Just look it up! It is about murder, booze, sex, gambling, and partying, and Jesus is probably offended that you celebrate it!

The image of Santa Claus was made by the coca cola company, also people used to worship trees. Why else did you think that people would bring them into houses and decorate them. People usually don't bother searching holiday origins so this may be a surprise, but it's true, unfortunately.

This holiday sucks. Seriously, it sucks.
Let's be real. Everyone who loves this holiday only like it because they get presents, and they won't admit it. And it's not Jesus' birthday like every "christian" and "catholic" person claims.
The weather is just very cold and depressing for the most part.
Lots of the movies and songs based on Christmas are just corny and cringe, with the exception of maybe a few.
Everyone's waiting for this bs "christmas miracle" to happen when they are all just coincidences waiting to happen.
I don't even see why this holiday is highly regarded as the best either.

Nothing but an indulgent, self-serving "holiday" to feed selfish egos, consumerism and commercialism. Why would ANYONE think it's a great holiday, based on those facts? And please don't defend it as being "Jesus' birthday" because it most certainly is not. Greed and self-importance are most important to christmas-celebrators.

15 Kwanzaa

This man-made December holiday, isn't even about religion!

It is a bit mean. Although I'm Roman Catholic I mean it is a bit bad

16 Thanksgiving

I actually remember after the whole Black Friday ordeal, me and my bro went up to Lake Placid in upstate NY for fun. Me and my family were there, and it was already snowing. It was so far away (I lived in NJ, so you know.) and I had to play on my Nintendo DS for entertainment throughout the trip. I was pretty happy when Real Gone Kid came on the radio when we arrived, and I was still jamming to the song. My friend showed me the cabin, and, not gonna lie, it was pretty toasty. For the first activity, we were going to do the sleigh ride. I found it pretty relaxing, but the horses stank and the crunching of the snow got annoying. I then decided to relax in the stables afterwards, but one of the horses neighed really loudly and I woke up. The next thing I did was ice skating. I tried to show my skills to some Canadian college students and they said, "Why don't you show your skills someplace else, ice fairy?" I got a chuckle out of them, but I didn't find it funny. And when I did skiing, I ...more

Ehhh, it's overrated. I don't MIND thanksgiving, but I don't think it should be a holiday. To me, it's basically just another Sunday dinner, but you get a five-day weekend, which is really nice, and it's on Thursday. Plus, the food isn't even that good if we're honest. Stuffing is kinda nasty, Turkey basically tastes like every school lunch ever, and mashed potatoes just aren't my favorite.

Why do we need a second day where every business except the Chinese businesses close, I can understand Christmas, but Thanksgiving (basically Christmas without the presents & radio songs) give me a break.

It's just a waste of food where you shove the food you actually don't need down your pie-hole while there are people in developing countries who need that food but your too busy chomping on your Turkey.

17 Groundhog Day

This holiday always makes me so angry whenever it doesn't go my way.

What the heck

18 Heterosexual Pride Day

Everyone who supports this holiday deserves a good bullet to the face, as homophobic evangelical pricks shouldn't be allowed to breathe!

It should be a well-known fact by now that God hates ALL homophobic straight people, especially the ones who claim to be good Christians or Muslims in any way.

Anyone who celebrates this lousy excuse for a holiday is a friendless subhuman degenerate who should be gassed to death at the nearest concentration camp.

Every single last one of those homophobic Proud Boys should be brutally shot to death in the EXACT same way as Osama bin Laden!

19 International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Yar, this here holiday needs to walk the plank!

This exists too? What? What day is it?

Another 6 year old holiday.

The first 6 years of school.

20 Ramadan

Let's celebrate by not eat! Sign me up woo

Why would I celebrate this?

This is the worst holiday if I celebrate this I will die of Starvation

This isn't that bad the bad things is that my friends don't even if there hungry

21 World Password Day

I have no idea what the hell this even is.

22 New Years Eve

By the way, the song itself is called "Same Old Lang Syne", if you don't know already. The song itself also plays in many department stores in my area, even in that convenience store in Peoria, Illinois that I visited (to my surprise, Dan Fogelberg visited that exact store and that was what caused him to write the song). It's very similar to department stores playing "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey every Christmas. Oh, wait. It gets better. "Longer" plays during the summer, "Rhythm of The Rain" plays during spring and many others. Don't get me wrong, I find a lot of his songs to be very therapeutic and relaxing to listen to, but overplaying those songs can be a bit too much...

As much as I anticipate the next year, I will never take any New Year's Eve celebrations. For example, when I was away on a Christmas holiday vacation in 2012 in Gatlinburg, TN, we had to bear the noisiness of New Year's Eve celebrations. There were a bunch of rowdy teens partying on the quiet streets, spoiling our experience and they were drinking beer a lot, too. Luckily, we found a more quiet place, which was, of course, a Japanese-style health spa to celebrate it. And they played a ton of New Year's Eve-centric songs, such as that Dan Fogelberg song I grew up liking. But yeah, apart from that, I would pretty much spend New Year's Eve alone in my room, eating ordered pizza and playing on my Nintendo Switch. It's pretty annoying when there's people yelling and chattering all night.

It's the worst holiday.
For example, if you visit places like Times Square NYC, you spend much of the day standing outside on your feet in the cold weather and get frostbite and you can't eat or drink anything the whole time, except 1 pie, JUST PIE!
You're fasting throughout the big event.

You're held in captivity, bump into other people and your clothes rub and you feet start hurting, yet they start bleeding, and even when you want to leave, you can't, and you just suffer through.
Yet when you're about to use the restroom, you can't because of the crowd and the barricade, and you'll get a bladder problem.

Then the countdown happens and then you scream your head off, your throat is already dry from dehydration, but you make it even drier by screaming, and you lose your voice.

You make resolutions, but they turn out fake in the end.

At the end, you're frozen, disoriented, in pain, and you'll pass out from leg weakness and LBP(low blood pressure)from ...more

The only holiday that combines the romance of Valentine's Day with the binge-drinking of St Patrick's Day. I do not drink alcohol and have only ever been with someone for one Valentine's Day. Add the yearly disappointing reminder of unfulfilled dreams and there ya go.

23 Confederate Memorial Day

Those who STILL support the inherently racist Confederacy should either be hanged in trees or forced into slavery for an eternity.

Fun fact: The Penguins of Madagascar cartoon lasted longer than the Confederacy.

24 International Men's Day

This holiday sucks

25 Mardi Gras

Stupid holiday that ruined the reputation of putting the colors yellow, green and purple together. Alcohol, flashing your boobs for necklaces and of course, jesters who look like they came straight from a time machine.

What do you do on Mardi Gras?
