Incomplete list: Movable holidays may or may not be on this list due to the fact the dates change each year: 

Food Holidays for this date:
  • National Strawberry Parfait Day (June 25)
The whole month of June is National Frozen Yoghurt Month so many people celebrate this day by serving frozen yogurt parfaits instead of ice cream parfaits.

What is this Holiday about? This holiday celebrates the ice cold treat of strawberries in parfait form. It's time to bring awareness to those who have not yet tired a strawberry parfait by making some and sharing it as an after dinner dessert or by serving at a parfait party. Parfait parties can be nice quiet parties between family or it can be a real big bash full of strawberries, ice cream, yogurt and more strawberries.​

Holidays Around the World for this date:
 
  • Arbor Day (Philippines)
​Arbor Day in the Philippines has been institutionalized to be observed every June 25 throughout the nation by planting trees and ornamental plants and other forms of relevant activities. The necessity to promote a healthier ecosystem for the people through the rehabilitation and regreening of the environment was stressed in Proclamation No. 643 that amended Proclamation No. 396 of June 2, 2003. Proclamation No. 396 enjoined the "active participation of all government agencies, including government-owned and controlled corporations, private sector, schools, civil society groups and the citizenry in tree planting activity and declaring June 25, 2003 as Philippines Arbor Day."

  • Independence Day (Mozambique) Independence from Portugal in 1975.
An Independence Day is an annual event commemorating the anniversary of a nation's assumption of independent statehood, usually after ceasing to be a group or part of another nation or state; more rarely after the end of a military occupation. Most countries observe their respective independence days as a national holiday, and in some cases the observance date is controversial or contested.

  • National Catfish Day (United States)
National Catfish Day is a national observance of the United States celebrating "the value of farm-raised catfish." The day was designated as June 25, 1987, by President Ronald Reagan, who issued the Presidential Proclamation after the U.S. Congress called for the day to be established in House Joint Resolution 178.​

  • Statehood Day (Croatia)
Statehood Day (Croatian: Dan državnosti pronounced [dan dr̩ʒaʋnosti]) is a holiday that occurs every year on June 25 in Croatia to celebrate the country's 1991 declaration of independence from Yugoslavia. The Statehood Day is an official holiday, a day off work in Croatia.

  • Statehood Day (Slovenia)
Statehood Day (Slovene: Dan državnosti) is a holiday that occurs on every 25 June in Slovenia to commemorate the country's declaration of independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Although the formal declaration of independence did not come until 26 June 1991, Statehood Day is considered to be June 25 since that was the date on which the initial acts regarding independence were passed and Slovenia became independent. Slovenia's declaration jumpstarted the Ten-Day War with Yugoslavia, which it eventually won.

Statehood Day is not to be confused with Slovenia's Independence and Unity Day, which is celebrated each year on December 26 in honour of the 26 December 1990 official proclamation of the results of the plebiscite in which 88.5% of all Slovenian voters were in favor of Slovenia becoming a sovereign nation.

Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia at the same time, and also celebrates its Statehood Day on June 25. However, Croatia celebrates Independence Day on a different day, October 8.​

  • Statehood Day (Virginia)
Virginia Colony, then sovereign state in Confederation​
