Festivals, holidays, special days - we all enjoy a good celebration. If there are parties, gifts and music involved then so much the better.

Festivology is dedicated to all these special days on the calendar that brighten up our lives, from large national celebrations such as Christmas and Halloween through to topical and local festivals. The focus will be on Western celebrations, especially those relating to the UK and the US.

Festivology isn't going to be a simple list of holidays and special events - there are plenty of them online already. Instead I plan to cover a few selected festivals in more detail and provide some information about the history, background and symbolism involved. Obviously we don't need to know why we're having a good time, but I find it enhance the fun.

I hope you enjoy the site and remember: every day is special.
