DNA Day!
______________________________________________________

Significance
The day celebrates the discovery and understanding of DNA and the scientific advances that understanding has made possible.

The National Human Genome Research Institute says this:
"National DNA Day is a unique day when students, teachers and the public can learn more about genetics and genomics!" "It was created to commemorate the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, and the discovery of DNA's double helix."  official website

Definition of DNA
"Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and some viruses." "The main role of DNA molecules is the long-term storage of information." "DNA is often compared to a set of blueprints or a recipe, or a code, since it contains the instructions needed to construct other components of cells, such as proteins and RNA molecules." "The DNA segments that carry this genetic information are called genes, but other DNA sequences have structural purposes, or are involved in regulating the use of this genetic information."

Origin of this Holiday
It is possible the December 14th date may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites (see DNA day greetings) but no reference to the background of this holiday. Such as- why the month of December and why the 14th day??  That's the question...

We also have a DNA Day on April 25th-
Wikipedia encyclopedia tells us "DNA Day is a holiday celebrated on April 25th." "It commemorates the day in 1953 when James Watson and Francis Crick's article on the structure of DNA was published."

"The DNA Day in 2008 was also the five year anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project."
