As title! Im running some competitions for my University which celebrates all our students, who come from all over the world, so I thought it would be nice to run competitions based on celebrations across the world!

For example, the main celebrations and holidays in my country are:

Christmas
New Year
Pancake day
Easter
Halloween

(to name a few)!

Anyone got any suggestions? What do you celebrate in your country? What are the main holidays? c:

Here in Greenland, January 6 is Mitaartut. Children dress up as little witches and wizards and go around knocking on people's doors. lol

Christmas and New Year's are also popular holidays here. We don't do Halloween though.
