All Day Fast of Esther
The Fast of Esther is Jewish holyday, a fast from dawn until dusk on Purim eve, commemorating the three-day fast observed by the Jewish people in the story of Purim. As the Fast of Esther is not one of the four public fasts ordained by the Prophets, the laws concerning its observance are more lenient; pregnant women, nursing mothers, and those who are weak are not required to observe it
All Day Holi

Holi is an important festival to Hindus, as well as many other Indians and other people of south Asian origin. It is celebrated at the end of winter, on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalgun, which usually falls in March, sometimes in late February. The festival has many purposes; most prominently, it celebrates the beginning of Spring. The night before Holi, bonfires are lit in a ceremony known as Holika Dahan or Little Holi. People gather near fires, sing and dance. The next day, people pour into the streets and temples to spray colored powder solutions at each other, laugh and celebrate.  After playing with colors, people bathe, put on clean clothes, and visit friends and family.

In recent years, some Western communities have taken Holi-style celebrations out of their religious context in the form of popular “color-runs.”

All Day Mabon (Southern Hemisphere)
Mabon is a Pagan harvest festival, the second of three, that encourages pagans to “reap what they sow,” both literally and figuratively. It is the time to reflect on the previous year, to celebrate successes (likened to bringing in the harvest) and assess which crops, projects, or dreams didn’t come to fruition.
All Day Norouz
Norouz, meaning “New Day,” is the Zoroastrian New Year, and is observed by people of diverse faiths (including Baha'i) in Iran, the Balkans, the Black Sea Basin, Central Asia, and Western Asia. Norouz is typically celebrated with fireworks, flowers, and spring cleaning. 
All Day Ostara (Northern Hemisphere)
Ostara is a Pagan celebration of the Spring equinox, named for a Germanic goddess of Spring and fertility. Similar to those observed at Easter, symbols for Ostara include eggs, rabbits, flowers and seeds. These symbols to represent the fecundity of spring and are incorporated into rituals, altars and celebratory feasts.
All Day Purim
Purim is one of the most joyous holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination. It is customary to hold carnival-like celebrations on Purim, to perform plays and parodies, to give to charity, and to eat and drink to excess. Americans sometimes refer to Purim as the Jewish Mardi Gras. The primary commandment related to Purim is to hear the reading of the book of Esther. It is customary to boo, hiss, stamp feet and rattle noisemakers whenever Haman, the genocidal king in the story, is mentioned in the service. The purpose of this custom is to "blot out the name of Haman."
