The word holiday is derived originally referred to religious, or holy days, but in modern, secular times, it has come to mean any day which is designated either by law or by custom to commemorate an event which happened on or about that date. Holidays include such days as Easter, Chanukkah, Christmas, Rosh Hashanah, and Thanksgiving. Celebrations, on the other hand, are festivals or festivities which are observed as holidays or the anniversaries or commemorations of significant events or births.
