List of holidays in 2004[edit]

List of holidays in 2004 was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was delete.

Holidays are usually celebrated every year and not once a year. --Conti| 21:47, Dec 26, 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep for the timebeing - review in a few months to see if it's still incomplete. This is like the page at the beginning of a diary which tells you the exact dates of holidays in each year. They do tend to move due to the weekdays moving and being movable feasts like Easter. However, there will be a lot if this is to live up to its intro. of being 'global'. It was created early 2004 and never got very far - still someone might pick it up (though more likely starting with 2005 now) User:Btljs 22:52, Dec 26, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. I can a see the idea behind it, but I'm sure the dates of major holidays are covered in other articles. -Ld | talk 01:06, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • You are forgetting (and ignoring the above text) that some holidays are not fixed on exact dates, so the list for each year makes sense. Mikkalai 04:11, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I understand that, however listing all the holidays for every single year would be just as useful as making a list of numbers divisible by 2. On the other hand, I would not object to a list of unexpected federal holidays like Reagan's funeral for example. -Ld | talk 18:46, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: In the US, most holidays are either on the specific day (Independence Day, Christmas) or they are determined by a formula (Thanksgiving is on the 3rd Thursday of November). Easter is the only one that I can think of that is difficult. Maybe a list of holidays with the way that their date is determined would be appropriate. DCEdwards1966 06:41, Dec 27, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, seems pointless. And there is no holidays section on the main page powered by this page, the holidays are pulled from the day lists as far as I can tell. hfool 22:39, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, redundant. Wyss 22:49, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, unnecessary. Megan1967 02:17, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, since it can surely be covered (and in some cases already is) in the article Holidays Peter Shearan 13:40, 31 Dec 2004 (UTC)
