What fictional holidays can we celebrate this year?

What are your favorite fictional holidays? This winter, my partner and I want to celebrate as many Christmas-like made-up holidays as possible. Our list includes Hogswatch (Discworld), Winter Veil (World of Warcraft), Crimbo (from Kingdom of Loathing), Festivus (which is increasingly less fictional), Life Day (from the Star Wars Christmas Special), and the Ice Festival (from Maria V. Snyder's fantasy books). Are there any more that we can add to our calendar?

Serbian Christmas Music Recommendations

We are having some visiting Serbian friends over for a late (by our standards) Christmas meal in a few days. They will literally be on the other side of the world in New Zealand at this time. I'd like to play some Serbian Christmas music that they would enjoy, music that says "Christmas" to them, especially so far from home. I understand that the actual Serbian Christmas is not until January 7th, but I'd like to play music that lets them know we have gone to some trouble to help them enjoy Christmas. Any recommendations, especially those accessible via iTunes or YouTube, would be most welcome.
