No matter your religion or culture, winter holidays always seem to add a certain festivity to the arrival of the cold, dark winter months.

The obvious Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa holidays are the prevailing, major winter holidays in the U.S. But once the garlands of greenery and menorahs have been extinguished, what other winter holidays might Americans look forward to? Let’s not forget about the federal holidays coming up in 2017 — like President’s Day Weekend — or state holidays — Inauguration Day is observed in a handful of states.

If you do your research, you could find a way to recognize a new “holiday” in the U.S. almost every week for the remainder of winter — and that’s a lot of celebrating. In addition to the major holidays of the season, here are some days to notice and observe this winter in the U.S., according to timeanddate.com.
