Strange Days - The World's Top 75 Silly Holidays and Commemoration Days

As I am wont to do on a Tuesday morning in July, I was daydreaming about International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which I make a point of honoring every year. And, in true Carrie Bradshaw style, I "couldn't help but wonder" how many other silly holidays and commemoration days there are in the world.

A quick trawl round the 'Net revealed that there are in fact hundreds of weird and astonishing holidays and commemoration days celebrated around the world. Far too many to list here, so here are my top 75. They're all real - Google them if you don't believe me!
