I looked up the following four holidays:
Francisco Morazán Day is a national holiday in Honduras. Honduras celebrates, on 3 October, the birth anniversary of Francisco Morazán, a popular Honduran leader who was born in the year 1792.
National Foundation Day:
This is a designated date on which celebrations mark the founding of a nation, state or a creation of a military unit. This day is for countries that came into existence without the necessity of gaining independence. Older countries that use some other event of special significance as their national day. This signals the use of a "class" of National Days, that are equally important in the foundation of the nation, and a "class" of less important official public holidays. This holiday can be symbolized by the date of becoming republic or a significant date for a patron saint or a ruler (birthday, accession, removal, etc.) as the starting point of the nation's history. Often the day is not called "Foundation Day" but serves and can be considered as one.
National Boyfriend Day:
National Boyfriend Day on October 3rd recognizes the sweetheart in your life. Like special days for family members, this day dedicates attention to the boyfriends in one’s life. There is no information as to how this started but the first Boyfriend Day took place in 2002.
And yes, there is an International Girlfriend Day, but you will have to wait until August to read about that and some other interesting facets that somewhat go along with that.
Card Making Day:
Celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October, the day first began in 2006 and was created by Paper Craft Magazine (home based in the UK) as a way to encourage crafters to get a head start on the holiday season.
More Strange Holidays come Sunday!
