Capitalizing Thanksgiving Day

Across the United States, people are celebrating Thanksgiving Day. Inspired by the day and having a moment before I get ready for the festivities of eating, drinking, and enjoying good company, I want to write about capitalizing the word day in holidays.

Around individual holidays celebrated in the U.S., people often wonder about day. Yes, day is capitalized. For example:

  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • Kamehameha Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Election Day
  • Presidents’ Day
  • Father’s Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Martin Luther King’s Birthday

Happy Thanksgiving Day!
