If you think the holidays are coming up soon, you may be surprised to know you missed months and months of holidays – science and science-fiction holidays, we mean. Scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and science-fiction fans appear to be party animals – look at all the holidays for science, math, biology, science fiction, and more! Earlier this week it was Read Comics in Public Day and later in September, it is International Observe the Moon Night. Plus, October 23 is one of the best holidays around: Mole Day.

Last year was the first time I heard about 9/8 being "g day" in recognition of the acceleration due to gravity near earth's surface.

12 January - the birthdate of HAL 9000 from _2001: A Space Odyssey_

...isn't every day Science Fiction day, though?
