The "Hallmark holiday" term

"Hallmark holiday" is a disparaging term, used predominantly in the United States, to describe a holiday that exists primarily for commercial purposes, rather than to commemorate a traditionally significant religious or secular event.

The name comes from Hallmark Cards, a privately owned American company based in Kansas City, Missouri, that benefits from such manufactured events through sales of greeting cards and other items. The company itself denies having any role in the creation of the holidays that bear this moniker.

"Friendship cards are also increasing in popularity. Since 1919, Hallmark’s founder, Joyce Hall, recognized the importance of sending friendship cards after a friend suggested he put an Edgar Guest poem on one of his cards." "It began “I’d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me …”

"Since 1935, Congress has recognized National Friendship Day on Aug. 7." "On the other hand, for Hallmark, Friendship Day is every day." "The public agrees." "Hallmark sells 160 million friendship cards each year."
