The term “National” is used a lot when describing specific holidays. While there are holidays that are officially “National” holidays, as proclaimed by a sitting President, some of the “National” days listed here have been created by companies & PR agencies promoting products. Likewise many of the dates chosen do not seem to have any specific history or rationale. Sometimes the "holiday" is celebrated on more than one day. Nothing wrong with any of this as it all contributes to more party excuses - we just wanted you to know. Have Fun & Party Responsibly!
We have created this site to highlight & list all the best excuses to create a party for each and every day of the year. And not just one or two excuses - but thousands of excuses! Collected over many years these "excuses" range from the obvious to the offbeat. They all have one intention - to offer an excuse to host a party, go to a party, have a drink with friends, or just raise a toast. We make every effort to ensure this collection of excuses is as accurate as possible, but we remind you when a list includes items like "National Pig Day" & "National Napping Day" you can't take everything too serious! Enjoy & let us know how we are doing, and contribute your Party Excuses !
