Definition of Red Letter Day: red letter day is any day of celebration, like holidays, birthdays, or other days of special significance. In many ancient writings, words were highlighted using red ink.

In this blog series we'll share with you the origin of each holiday, as well as other significant days in history. Our hope is that you'll find this interesting and insightful and that you'll be able to use this as a reference if you're ever asked by your kids, a friend, or family member, "Why do we celebrate Christmas?" or, "What's up with Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny, and all the candy?"

We have found ourselves asking similar questions, so we set out to find the answers! Enjoy!
