Holiday In Free Country, USA

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, possibly created for viewers of religions other than Christianity.



New Year's Day (January 1st)

A day to set goals for the next year, with no intention whatsoever of following them.

Trogday (January 13th)

The anniversary of the creation of Trogdor the Burninator. When Trogday falls on a Sunday, as it did in 2008, it is celebrated on the following Monday instead.

Super Bowl/The Big Game (last Sunday in January or first Sunday in February)

A day of rest, and of putting off until tomorrow what you could do today.

Valentine's Day (February 14th)

A depressing time for Strong Sad, and possibly even Strong Bad, Valentine's Day is the day the citizens of Free Country, USA realize just how empty their lives really are.

April Fools' Day (April 1st)

A time of tomfoolery for

Easter (Sunday following first full moon after March 20)

A holiday of small note and obscurity in Free Country, USA, Easter has not been featured very often (perhaps due to its religious content, similar to Decemberween replacing Christmas).

The Cheat's 'Cheatday' (April 18th)

Free Country's biggest birthday bash is The Cheat's Cheatday, celebrated on April 18th, the date on The Cheat's fake ID, because that's the only day Strong Bad is sure is not The Cheat's birthday.

Mother's Day (second Sunday in May)

A day to recognize the hard work of the women who never have, and likely never will, appear in Free Country USA.

Senorial Day (last Monday in May)

A day that seems to correspond to Memorial Day. Apparently, all the big stores in town (at least, Senor Cardgage's and Bubs') have sales that weekend.

Flag Day (June 14th)

A day to proudly raise the Strong Badia flag, and sing along to the Strong Badia national anthem.

Fourth of July/Independence Day (July 4th)

A time of patriotism, retrospect, and, of course, fireworks.

Labor Day (first Monday in September)

Labor Day (aka Labor-Dabor) is a day of no work, enforced by the Homestarmy.

Halloween (October 31st)

A popular holiday in Free Country. The main characters are always seen in a different costume at this time.

Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday in November)

A time of feasting and reminiscing.

Decemberween (December 25th)

A made-up holiday that takes place 55 days after Halloween. It is analogous to Christmas, possibly having the name to avoid religious issues for the non-Christian audiences.


General birthday references also abound. All of these toons mention someone's "birthday".
