So how does one go about creating a national holiday? Well, it takes a lot of work and literally an act of Congress. First you have to create a proposal and contact your local congress person. You have to get it onto the congressional agenda. Next you have to be patient. It takes a while.
That’s it. You can find your local representative by searching the US House of Representatives database.
There are a bunch of ‘fake’ national holidays that have been created and copyrighted for advertising purposes. But the list below are real from what we can tell.
