Merlin Remembrance Day was a suggested public holiday in honour of Merlin, a medieval wizard known as "the most famous wizard of all time". The holiday was suggested in a reader's letter to the Daily Prophet published 31 July, 1998. The letter, however, indicated that the holiday was only suggested to establish a new public holiday, and thus provide an additional day per year off of work, rather than any legitimate desire to honour Merlin. Whether this holiday was ever implemented is unknown.[1]
