US Holiday On May 8 2022?

The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during Sunday, 2022-05-08:

  • Mother's Day:

    [pro] Mother's Day celebrates mothers every second Sunday of May. President Woodrow Wilson, who issued a proclamation in 1914, asked Americans to give a public expression of reverence to mothers on this day. Carnations have come to represent Mother's Day, following President William McKinley's habit of always wearing a white carnation, his mother's favorite flower. According to the Presidential Proclamation (2015),
    Each May, Americans dedicate a day to honor the remarkable women who strive and sacrifice all year to ensure ours is a Nation where all things are possible. Whether married or single, LGBT or straight, biological, adoptive, or foster, mothers are the bedrocks of our lives and the foundation of our society. They are our first friends and teachers, inspiring us to reach great heights and supporting us no matter the challenges we face or the paths we choose. Today, we come together to celebrate the women who raised us and who love us unconditionally -- who do whatever it takes to set us on the road to success and want nothing more than for us to lead happy, healthy lives.
  • Teacher Appreciation Week - Day 7

  • National Women's Health Week - Day 1:

    [pro] This week is a reminder to women to take care of themselves, and to make their health a priority. During this week organizations promote awareness, prevention, and educational activities that improve the health of women. According to the Presidential Proclamation (2015),
    During National Women's Health Week, we reaffirm the belief that ensuring all women and girls have the opportunity to live full and healthy lives is vital to their success and to the prosperity of our Nation.


[pro] This is a special day designated by presidential proclamation.
