    Aha!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes_Night

    Sort of forms a double whammy with Hallowe'en in the UK nowadays, because they're separated by less than a week. I'm also trying to add my new aliens-themed holiday called Rumfernacky to the mix, but it hasn't really caught on yet.

    EDIT: Bonfire Night is basically fireworks night in the UK, if you want to save yourself the effort of reading the article :-)

    You might be on to something with that "Rumfernacky" .... something to bridge the long wait between the Halloween parties and the 5 November parties!

    I was actually hoping to pencil it in for the end of January, so everyone has something to look forward to after Christmas.

    Christmas has a magic/elves theme. Hallowe'en has a ghosts/monsters theme. It feels like there's a clear gap in the market for a holiday with a space/aliens theme.

    May the 4th would probably become this sort of holiday, if ever one was made I think?

    I want to know more about Rumfernacky. Does it involve drinking rum?

    As a pastafarian, I have one long holiday beginning around Halloween (which was invented by pastafarian pirates) and lasting roughly until new year, and it's just called Holiday. But I'm sure we could encompass Rumfernacky in it somewhere.

    EDIT To anyone tempted to Google Rumfernacky, if you play the folky tune that comes up, it will be lodged in your head for the rest of the day.

    That'll give me something to read while travelling.
    It's still in my head.
