2013 Holidays – When is the Super Bowl or Mother’s Day or Easter ?

Ever drive to work on a National Holiday? I just did! 🙁

Should have googled 2013 holidays! I’m always asking myself things like when is the Superbowl. Yeah, daddy isn’t a big sports fan, but we do always watch it as a family.

I definitely need to know dates like Valentines Day or when is Mother’s Day! It would be kinda bad to forget those?! Wonder if my family has googled when is Father’s Day? [hint, hint]

Here's a cheat sheet of 2013 holidays we best not forget, like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Daylight Savings, etc. [click image]

My wife’s side of the family is largely Irish, so I’ll definitely look for information about Saint Patrick to share with our 4yr old. It’s not just as an excuse to drink Guinness and Shamrock Shakes. 😉

Are you someone who cares when is Mardi Gras in 2013? Have you ever been to New Orleans for that? How was it? Oh, and am I the only one who can never remember how to calculate when Easter 2013 is?

Anyway, I’ve created a cheat sheet of these holidays for 2013 and am adding them below. Bookmark this page if you want so you can come back the next time you ask, “when is ______ in 2013?”

    1. Hey, thanks for stopping by, Justin! Yeah, it was a bummer to realize I’d gotten up for nothing, but as you say, it at least was a pleasant surprise that I didn’t have to work. Sadly, I did work anyway. Hope you had a great holiday if you were off?

  1. I only have one question – who’s April and why do they have a holiday for her pool? 😉 Haha!

    Much love to you and your ladies 🙂

    1. Oops…I guess technically that would be two questions 🙂

      1. Hee hee, I was wondering that same thing! 😉

    2. Oops. Darned spell check! I’m going to leave it, as it’s more entertaining this way. And besides, if you don’t know when April Fool’s Day is… well, you need more than a cheat sheet. Thanks so much for dropping by, Kelley & Laura, even if it was just to take a red pen to my post. 😉

  2. One more week! Always know when its Super Bowl Sunday: http://www.real.com/resources/watch-super-bowl-online

    1. I suppose so. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the link, AJ. Have a great evening!
