Top 10 Worst American Holidays


The Top Ten

1 Valentine's Day Valentine's 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 - Gametheorysucks

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

2 Columbus Day Columbus Day

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

Who even celebrates this - Gametheorysucks

3 Groundhog Day

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

Who celebrates this - Gametheorysucks

They never got it right once...

4 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 - Gametheorysucks

5 Thanksgiving

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

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.

This holiday is underrated - Gametheorysucks

6 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

7 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.

8 Memorial Day

Same reason as Independence Day. - GreninjaGuy

Isn’t this the same thing as Veterans Day - Gametheorysucks

9 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

10 New Year's Day

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

The Contenders

11 Secretary's Day/Administrative Assistants Day

On June 4, since 1952.

12 Kwanzaa
13 Festivus
14 Mother's Day
15 Halloween
16 Father's Day
17 Yom Kippur

Never heard of this - Gametheorysucks

18 Rosh Hashanah
