80+ Dates To Celebrate In 2015

While December is packed with holiday parties, gift shopping, carolers at your door, and seeing friends and family after a long time apart, the other months of the year aren't always necessarily as exciting.

However, that all has to do with your perspective. Who says you shouldn't celebrate May Day just as intensely as you do Christmas?

Darn right, you can deck the house in flowers, put on your most festive summer dress, start whipping up that batch of Spring time Sangria, and put on music of birds chirping. Voila! Perfect excuse to have all the lead-up excitement, preparation, and one hell of a party with all your other closest May Day loving friends.

You can make anything, and I mean anything into quite the shin dig if you really think about it.

But, oh wait, you can't for the life of you think of a creative reason to throw a party?

See the list below for some conventional, and also not-so-conventional celebrations.
