Default Colonial holidays

The following are the better-known of the Colonial holidays and holy days, and, if applicable, their Earth equivalents.

01/01 New Year’s Day
January or February Tet
01/06 Twelfth Night (Epiphany)
02/02 Candlemas (Groundhog Day)
02/03 Feast of St. Blaise
02/13 Lupercalia
April Ostara (Easter)
05/01 Beltaine/St. Walpurga’s Day (May Day)
05/05 Children’s Day
May Whitsunday (Sunday after Pentecost)
06/24 Midsummer
08/01 Lammas/Lughnasadh
09/29 Michaelmas
10/31 Samhain (Halloween)
11/01 All Hallows (All Saints Day)
11/11 Armistice Day (Veterans Day)
12/17 Saturnalia/Yule (Christmas)

I realize that, with the exception of Tet and Children's Day, the holidays are all European in origin. If you know of any others, please add them to the list.
Your useless trivia for the day: Candlemas, Groundhog Day and Imbolc (which I didn't include) all partially celebrate the same thing, despite their different origins--it's the halfway point of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
