Calendar Events
Mod

Claim a calendar event! This can be a certain date, a holiday, a month, or anything you'd find on a calendar. If it is a holiday,  please note which country celebrates it (if only 1) or which religion celebrates it (if it's a lesser holiday).

Examples: Cinco de Mayo (Mexico); April; 100th Day. For example, if someone claims Thanksgiving (US), you may still claim Thanksgiving (Canada), since they're separate holidays. However, if someone claims Christmas - you cannot claim it from a certain country since it is practically a worldwide holiday.
