Top - Most Celebrated Occasions Worldwide

Today is Valentine's Day and the atmosphere can be quite festive for some who search the stores for their loved ones' gifts to include chocolates, flowers followed by some romantic dates. However, this day can be quite gloomy too for others who are in distant relationship or have just broken up with their partners or simply in romantic woes.

So, I wonder what can actually comprise a list of most - celebrated occasions. My research shows the following:

  1. New Year is the oldest celebrated holiday and practically by all nations
  2. Christmas Day is a religious event celebrated by Christians on December 25 and in the Philippines other non - Christians simply decorate their homes just to join the festive atmosphere of the community.
  3. Valentine's Day is celebrated by most countries next to New Year. This may not be a regular holiday but remains a festive day for most people. 
  4. Eid al - Fitr is a Muslim festivity that marks the end of Ramadan. In the Philippines, we have this day as a regular holiday to respect the celebration of  Muslim Filipinos. This is a festivity celebrated by Muslim - oriented countries like Middle East.
  5. Diwali is a Hindu  five - day festivity that is celebrated by countries like India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname. Families fill their places with clay oil lamps or candles for gratitude and prosperity.
