    Hi all, I just wanted to get some input from everyone.

    As some you know, I made the animated MYM discord icon, as well as the one we had for Halloween and Christmas. I want to get a list of holidays that would be good for more custom icons, however I only really know the holidays and days for them if they happen in my little end of the world (Canada) So, if you have some suggest please use the following format:

    Holiday name:
    Date(s):
    Brief description of what it is about:
    Country of origin:

    I would like to have a max of one per month, but if a month doesn't have any good options the default one will work. And I would like to keep the one I made for October and for December, but if someone has a better idea for either month, I am willing to try other ideas.

    EDIT:

    I would like to make it clear, I am not just looking for official holidays. Anything that is celebrated on a particular day, or over multiple days, I am interested in. Even if it is only done in a specific country. We have people from all over the world, and I think it would be nice to celebrate all the different cultures, not just ones I am familiar with.

    Holiday name: MYMs birthday
    Date(s): July 15
    Brief description of what it is about: based on Slinds join date.

    I originally posted this in for staff input, but I figured I would open this up to everyone.

    Valentines Day! We could all use a bit more love and positivity! Also the Christmas ornament was great!

    I am loving all these suggestions so far, and just want to make an addition to the main post.

    I would like to make it clear, I am not just looking for official holidays. Anything that is celebrated on a particular day, or over multiple days, I am interested in. Even if it is only done in a specific country. We have people from all over the world, and I think it would be nice to celebrate all the different cultures, not just ones I am familiar with.
