Solar Holidays and Memorial Days
Lunar Holidays and Memorial Days
And, just in case that wasn't enough celebrating for you, there's also the love-related holidays. There's dissension on this list, but I'll list what I know. (Slash, I'm doing a lot of copying and pasting here. I'll list all of my sources at the bottom.) Hold on to your hats.
Those are all the 14's, but WAIT! There's also Pepero day! Pepero (aka Pocky) is a stick-shaped cookie dipped in candy coating, so on 11/11, the date looks like a bunch of Pepero. People should give boxes of the stuff to the people they love on that day. By the way... 11/11 is Pocky Day in Japan. Don't tell the Koreans that they celebrate a same holidays as their neighbors to the East... please. It'll probably make for a bunch of nationalism that'll end up giving me a headache.
Furthermore, Christmas and Solar New Year's Eve are days to spend with your significant other as well.

Now that I'm thoroughly disgusted, Go be grateful that you only have 5 major gift-giving holidays a year plus birthdays.
In case you couldn't guess, I'm not a romantic.
