'''Holidays''' are a big part of [[Free Country, USA]], with holidays such as Mother's Day and Flag Day. Some of the more prevalent holidays are unlikely choices, such as April Fools' Day and Labor Day, also known as Labor Dabor. The most celebrated holidays, however, are [[Halloween]] and [[Decemberween]], the latter of which appears to be a euphemism for Christmas.

The most celebrated holidays, however, are [[Halloween]] and [[Decemberween]], the latter of which appears to be a euphemism for Christmas, possibly created for viewers of religions other than Christianity.
