Dia De La Raza (Columbus Day)
It is a federal holiday in the US after all.

Veteran’s Day
Another federal holiday

There are probably holidays in other countries, but the ones I mentioned, along with Thanksgiving and Halloween are probably the big ones in the US.

There is Mooncake Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival, celebrated by the Chinese throughout the world. Sweet delicacies like mooncakes are everywhere during this period.

There’s always Mabon and Samhain (the root of modern Halloween).

Also, here’s a list of Asatruer holidays (Norse Paganism).

You may or may not think these are “main” enough to note, but many others do. :)

We have Sweetest Day where I live.It’s like Valentine’s Day with less candy ;)
Devil’s night.The night before Halloween where Detroiters set fire to everything.

Holidays, where? This isn’t just a US (or UK, or even Northern Hemisphere) forum, you know.
