We're brainstorming here. Focusing on potential objections would get EVERY holiday banned. Christmas and Easter? Nuh-uh. They're religious holidays, bad to push religion on anyone. Halloween? It's pagan, it'll turn all kids into devil-worshipers.

The Day of the Dead is a legitimate holiday and not actually objectionable -- heck, even Petpet Park has Day of the Dead stuff. Sure, they'd need to minimize the more macabre aspects, but it could still be interesting.

Cinco de Mayo is an American holiday. Sure, Mexico acknowledges it too, but it's been as Americanized as Taco Bell food. It doesn't count as an international holiday, and dismissing anything as a 'token' international holiday is downright insulting.
