I was searching way too high.

I found me!  ;D

Also on the 11th of November it says Veterans Day but in the UK it is called Remembrance Day? Are they both for the same reason of the end of the first world war or something like that?

Something like that.  Veteran's Day is to honor all veterans, both living and dead.

I so liked all the different ways and days to celebrate Christmas that our family instituted the 12 days of Christmas.  Christmas Eve we fast until after the church service and then do a big feast, more or less a traditional Russian kind of thing. (We're not Russian at all but it was cool baking those goodies).  Then we all get to open one gift.  Christmas day morning, (25th), we can have whatever is in our stockings and whatever gifts, (unwrapped items), that Santa Claus has left along side of our stockings.  Later that day extended family visits and there is one more round of presents.  We do this until January 5th, Epiphany, when supposedly the Wise Men came.  Any presents left, and there always are presents left, are opened then with another family gathering.  Of course, New Year's Eve is a celebration too, with kids usually at one members house with adults who are not partying and the rest go out and have their fun.  By the time we're through we really don't want to see each other for at least a week!  lol  The tree stays up until Epiphany but comes down that night with all the family helping or the next day at the latest.  It all sounds horribly expensive but the gifts range in price from a few cents to several dollars.  Forinstance, one teenager gave a gift to her auntie of a book of coupons she could redeem with the teen for free babysitting, and one child requested a pack of lolllipops he didn't have to share.  You know how sometimes you open a lovely package and it turns out to be socks or underwear?  This makes the sock/underwear package fun.  Everyone groans and giggles and hopes their socks and underwear are NOT under the tree. lol  Plus, we all are musical in our family, so we spend a lot of time singing, dancing, playing games and of course, eating!  (to see one family member who sings, go to YouTube and search for FanMom4Olivia and you'll see/hear my kid)
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Just a reminder for our members that we do have a Forum Calendar.  I've got it updated with all of the challenges to the end of the year, as well as the release date of Late Night.  Also, if you included your birthdate on your Forum profile, it shows up on the Calendar.  To view the Calendar, just click "Calendar" in the menu bar located in the upper left corner of the Forum screen.

Note:  We already know that it shows primarily U.S. holidays, but there's nothing we can do as the Forum is based in the U.S.

Is that concidered as a problem than? It could be me reading your post wrong, but I thought you still can fill in other important days.

We're only using it to show things happening on the Forum, really.  There's no way I could get everything for every country on it.  I just don't have the time.

I know that the more members are coming now here the more work you (and your colleagues here) have to do. So in that case you could concidering (if it is important enough) to let someone else help you with it. ;)

I believe it does. I haven't saw Sinterklaas for example, which is a typical Dutch/Belgium holiday.
Although, my birthday was represented, which is a Dutch holiday also! :D

Yes, it's U.S holidays.  The programmers of the Forum software are based in the U.S., which is my best guess as to why it's U.S. holidays.

We call the 25th "Christmas day", but if you say "Christmas" everybody is going to assume (at least here in Sweden) that you're meaning the 24th. On the 24th, we have all presents, all normal traditions (which tv show to watch, what alcoholic beverage to drink etc.). That the name of the 25th is Christmas day is often ignored, it's the 24th that's the real Christmas. Hey, sometimes my parents are starting to talk about when to remove the Christmas tree then. :)

What you're doing during the 25th can vary between families, but many do nothing besides maybe having an extra nice meal or something. :)

Well, Christmas in England is on 25th! I can't imagine in on 24th! So many Christmas Eve family traditions that wouldn't happen. ;D
