Top 10 Worst American Holidays


The Top Ten

1 Columbus Day Columbus Day

Should be renamed Native American Genocide day

This guy is evil!

My school district and probably the entire county or state don't celebrate Columbus Day anymore. No day off or anything. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

A pointless holiday for an over credited guy. - GreninjaGuy

2 Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

I always get in thouble on that day because my family becomes more annoying and careless on that day.

The only holiday that no one looks forward to. If you're in love or married, you have to pay money to get a gift for your spouse or crush or else according to the holiday you don't love them. If you don't have a girlfriend or aren't married, you feel lonely that you don't have a partner. Valentine's Day's only reason to exist is just for businesses to make money. By far, my least favorite american holiday. - GreninjaGuy

The day where you love your girlfriend/boyfriend and make all the single people feel even lonelier than ever

Eh, the only good things I like about this holiday are the chocolate and candy and the Valentine's Day cartoon specials.

"I DEFY YOU, HEART MAN! " - Patrick Star, "Valentine's Day" - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Groundhog Day

The movie of the same name redeems this holiday. - GreninjaGuy

Who celebrates this

They never got it right once...

4 Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

It's commemorating an important, if not, arguably the most important and prominent figure of the Civil Rights Movement. This holiday isn't bad at all. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Again, same reason as Independence Day. - GreninjaGuy

An important figure to be sure, but in the past, Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday were each celebrated. Nowadays, there is a single generic "President's Day", and MLK day replaced the earlier of the two. MLK deserved his own day, but not at the expense of Washington or Lincoln.

5 George Washington's Birthday George Washington's Birthday George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Once again, same reason as Independence Day. - GreninjaGuy

6 Christmas

Christmas is a good holiday in america, if you're a christian. If you're in another religion, good luck trying to find stuff in the store to celebrate it. - GreninjaGuy

Why is Christmas on this list? Take it off! - Stazemar000

Seriously? What is this doing here

7 Kwanzaa
8 Thanksgiving

Most of the holidays on here are celebrated in other countries. But what exactly is Thanksgiving. Mmmm dinner that is similar to Christmas...ooh lets watch some sport...some parade.

For the last time, same reason as Independence Day. - GreninjaGuy

This holiday is underrated

9 Secretary's Day/Administrative Assistants Day

On June 4, since 1952.

10 Rosh Hashanah

The Contenders

11 Memorial Day

Same reason as Independence Day. - GreninjaGuy

Isn’t this the same thing as Veterans Day

12 Yom Kippur

Never heard of this

You lucky duck. It is an awful "holiday" and I put it in quotations because it shouldn't be called one since I was forced to fast. I only agreed to do it because everyone else did. I don't give a deal about the Torah. - Ihateschool

13 Festivus
14 New Year's Day

This barely qualifies as a holiday. Which is why it's at number 10. - GreninjaGuy

15 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

16 New Year’s Eve

@Gregory-this is why people wear diapers and pack their own food to these types of events.

The worst.
When celebrating at Times Square NYC or Vegas, 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 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 from LBP(low blood pressure) from standing ...more - Gregory

17 Independence Day

The reason it's near the bottom of the list is because there are no other american holidays. The only bad thing to come out of this holiday are the movies named after it, and even then that's debatable. - GreninjaGuy

I used to have this terrible fear of fireworks when I was very little. The noise made me nervous and I couldn't even sleep whenever 4th of July was around.

It was okay for me on New Year's since they don't tend to last very long, but 4th of July... made me wanna go to hell. The fireworks lasted from 9:00 pm until somewhere around midnight. It was a living nightmare for me back then - Stazemar000

18 Mother's Day
19 Halloween

I hate halloween. Fat candy, gross decorations, ugly colors, noisy kids, pointless dumb. Waste of money.

Halloween sucks for me

20 Father's Day
21 National School Nurse Day

Just stupid

22 Teachers Day
