  Christmas
Christmas is over and Business is Business.
Franklin P. Adams

I've been giving back since I was a teen, handing out turkeys at Thanksgiving and handing out toys at toys drives for Christmas. It's very important to give back as a youth. It's as simple as helping an old lady across the street or giving up your seat on the bus for someone who is pregnant.
Queen Latifah

  Easter
For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.

Alice Freeman Palmer

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!

Edna Dean Proctor

  Father's Day
A Father's Day would call attention to such constructive teachings from the pulpit as would naturally point out: The father's place in the home. The training of children. The safeguarding of the marriage tie. The protection of womanhood and childhood. The meaning of this, whether in the light of religion or of patriotism is so apparent as to need no argument in behalf of such a day.
Sonora Smart Dodd

Father's Day was comical in part because fathers seemed so out of place or uncomfortable in this holiday world of sentimental gifts and domestic flattery. The little remembrances of flowers, cards, and novelties became funny when showered on Father; they opened up a line of humor that played on the gendered incongruities of holiday gift giving. As one editorial writer on the holiday put the matter in 1925, fathers have 'no talent for the fribbles and frabbles and furbelows with which Mother signalizes well-being.
Leigh Eric Schmidt

  Independence Day
I know that upon 4th of July, our 4th of July orators talk of Liberty, while three million of their own country men are groaning in abject Slavery. This is called the land of the free and the home of the brave; it is called the asylum of the oppressed; and some have been foolish enough to call it the Cradle of Liberty. If it is the cradle of liberty, they have rocked the child to death. It is dead long since, and yet we talk about democracy and republicanism, while one-sixth of our countrymen are clanking their chains upon the very soil which our fathers moistened with their blood.
William Wells Brown

Yet America is a poem in our eyes; its ample geography dazzles the imagination, and it will not wait long for metres.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

That rugged individualism that is the personification of our American sense of freedom, and which we celebrate on the Fourth of July and in our popular myths and heroes, also contributes to the breakdown of the social fabric that has always provided a secure context for our freedoms. Freedom from has not yet yielded to an appropriate freedom for.
Peter J. Gomes

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Thomas Jefferson

Sing in the tones of prayer,
Sing till the soaring soul
Shall float above the world's control
In Freedom everywhere!
Sing for the good that is to be,
Sing for the eyes that are to see
The land where man at last is free,
O sing for Liberty!

James Riley

July 4. Statistics show that we lose more fools on this day than in all the other days of the year put together. This proves, by the number left in stock, that one Fourth of July per year is now inadequate, the country has grown so.
Mark Twain

  Mother's Day

  New Year's Day
I wore a padded bra every single day and night from the age of 14 until I was 31. Giving up padding was my New Year's resolution. I had known for ages that wearing a stuffed bra was a form of hiding my real body.
Sara Pascoe

Tomorrow 'ill be the happiest time of all
the glad New-year;
Of all the glad New-year, mother, the
maddest merriest day;
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother,
I'm to be Queen o' the May.

Alfred Tennyson

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
William E. Vaughan

  Other
Girls scream, boys shout; dogs bark, school's out.
W. H. Davies

Term, Holiday, term, Holiday, till we leave school, and then work, work, work till we die.
C. S. Lewis

The holiest of all Holiday are those
Kept by ourselves in silence and apart;
The secret anniversaries of the heart,
When the full river of feeling overflows.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Middle age is when, wherever you go on holiday, you pack a sweater.
Denis Norden

If I were a medical man, I should prescribe a holiday to any patient who considered his work important.
E. O. Wilson

  St. Valentine's Day
Must, bid the Morn awake,
Sad Winter now declines,
Each Bird doth choose a mate,
This day's Saint Valentine's;
For that good Bishop's sake
Get up, and let us see
What Beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.

Michael Drayton

Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine,
Love, thou art every day my Valentine!

Thomas Hood

Tomorrow is Saint Valentine's day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.

Hamlet
William Shakespeare
