15. Call it Lich celebration . I used to say Zombie Rising day but I was corrected that zombies are

wondering mindless . I still like Zombie day, but it's not an accurate description of the myth

Not to be confused with lichen.
In fantasy fiction, a lich (/ˈlɪtʃ/;[1] from Old English 'līċ' meaning 'corpse') is a type of undead creature. Often such a creature is the result of a transformation, as a powerful magician skilled in necromancy or a king striving for eternal life using spells or rituals to bind his intellect and soul to his phylactery and thereby achieving a form of immortality.
Liches are depicted as being clearly cadaverous, bodies desiccated or completely skeletal.
Liches are often depicted as holding power over hordes of lesser undead creatures, using them as soldiers and servants.
Unlike zombies, which are often depicted as mindless, a lich retains independent thought and is usually at least as intelligent as it was prior to its transformation.
