    Canada has its Groundhog Day on the same date. We call ours Wiarton Willy in Ontario. I think Manitobs had their own groundhog but on the same day

    Here we seem to always have Mothers' Day on the same day as the US, but Fathers' Day is in September.

    A lot of these special days I call "Hallmark moments" like Sweetest Day, Secretarie's(Executive's Assistant) Day, Bosses Day, Martin Luther King Day, and President's Day. I know there's more, but can't think right now w/o finding a calendar.
