The most common national celebration on Earth is a holiday shared by 65 different countries, on different days in each country. If you average it out on an annual basis, this holiday is being celebrated somewhere on the planet once every six days:

Independence from the British.

Easter Monday is a public holiday in 112 countries or territories, but this is still pretty funny/scathing.

A friend on another network pointed out that "national celebration" could be interpreted as "national day or similar celebration of the nation" rather than the more general "public holiday" and then the statement is true without qualifications or reservations.

@thesunshinesushi The sun never sets on the British Independence Holiday
