New Years Day (1 January): The first celebration of the year! Check out Times Square in New York City to ring in the New Year, American style.
St. Patrick's Day (17 March): Once you've recovered from celebrating New Year's, get prepared for St. Patrick's Day -- when everyone is a little Irish. Take a trip to Chicago where they dye the river green for the occasion.

Memorial Day (last Monday in May): When booking, be sure to keep in mind that Memorial Day is when most Americans are beginning their summer with a weekend away. Camping in the White Mountains is always a great way to spend this long weekend!
Independence Day (4 July): Planning to stay in the US for the summer? Celebrate the United States' Independence Day with a cookout / barbecue on the grill and a great fireworks display. Learn about the history of the US with a trip down the Freedom Trail in Boston.
Labor Day (first Monday in September): As the summer comes to a close, enjoy one last long weekend away before Fall semester starts. Catch some sun before the colder weather sets in, with a trip to the beaches of Southern California.
While you're at StudentUniverse, don't forget to also book your flights home for the end of the semester!
Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday of November): A day of giving thanks in North America. Most Americans spend this time eating turkey and watching American football with their families. Experience a New England Patriots game at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts.
Christmas (25 December): Not going home for the winter break? More than 90 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas. Celebrate on the slopes with a ski trip to Utah.
