Everyone knows their favorite Christmas or Halloween movie, but what about those other odd holidays when you decide you want to watch something? Here's a small selection of movies for some of the other Holidays throughout the year.

More suggestions are welcome, though do let me know what Holiday the movie refers to, and make it more than a passing mention, please.


For a list of great Horror movies for different holidays (including Halloween and Christmas), check out Horror for the Holidays.

"Familiar Strangers" takes place over the Thanksgiving weekend. Found it on my quest for a decent movie featuring a dog.
