Lunar New Year is not a religious holiday like Christmas is for Christians, Eid is for Muslims, Diwali is for Hindus, and Hanukkah is for Jews. Therefore, Lunar New Year a/k/a Chinese New Year a/k/a Spring Festival is on this list. However, Lunar New Year is listed both in January and in February because some years like 2022 Lunar New Year is in February but in other years like 2023 it will be in January. Also, in some of the Asian countries that celebrate Lunar New Year they use different names such as Teft in Vietnam and Seollal in Korea. 2 — Generally, this document has not included medical related special occasions of which there are many. However, there are exceptions such as American Heart Month, special occasions dealing with mental health, children, or abuse which I feel are important enough topics to consider. Most special occasions dealing with specific diseases have been excluded, Children are indeed our future. Therefore, special occasions that would generally not be included if they pertain to motivating or encouraging children in some way may be included. 4 — It is my personal experience, and it is supported by additional research, that Thanksgiving is treated as a religious harvest festival by religious people of any faith but it is also celebrated as a non -religious harvest festival by non -religious people, City of Ocoee Human Relations Diversity Board May 5, 2022 Background: Different components of the United States government as well as some social and other organizations recognize countless special occasion months, weeks, and days throughout the world.

Lunar New Year is not a religious holiday like Christmas is for Christians, Lid is for Muslims, Diwali is for Hindus, and Hanukkah is for Jews. Therefore, Lunar New Year a/k/a Chinese New Year a/k/a Spring Festival is ou this list. However, Lunar New Year is listed both in Jaritiary and in February because some years like 2022 Lunar New Year is in February but in other years like 2023 it will be iii January. Also, in some of the Asian cotuitries that celebrate Lunar New Year they use different names such as Tet in Vietnam and Seollal in Korea. 2 — Generally, this dOCUrrieut bas not included medical related special occasions of which there are many.
