While holidays like New Year's Eve and Christmas are celebrated all over the world, there's an event happening Oct. 15-16 that will be allegedly celebrated all over the universe -- including planets that have, so far, eluded Earth astronomers.
It's the Interplanetary Conclave of Light, a two-day festival reportedly celebrated on 33 planets across the Milky Way galaxy, including as-yet undiscovered planets with names like Vixall, Delna and Enishia.
The "Ufo-liday" celebrates Earth's invitation into the Interplanetary Confederation -- an outer space version of the United Nations.
This is the 28th year that the Conclave of Light has taken place here on Terra Firma, and while it's presumedly a big deal over on planets like Kallium, Severus and even Sixtus, it is not getting the publicity on Earth that is given to Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo or even Super Bowl Sunday.
But that doesn't bother Tracey Kennedy, the spokeswoman for the Unarius Academy of Science, a pro-UFO group that operates out of a storefront filled with DayGlo spaceship paintings, plastic Venus de Milo statues and Astroturf carpeting located in El Cajon, Calif., a suburb of San Diego.
"Each year, more and more people get attuned spiritually," Kennedy told HuffPost Weird News. "Even if they don't know it's happening, they're affected by it anyway."
The main -- and, possibly, only -- place on Earth where the Conclave of Light is being celebrated is at the Unarius headquarters, where around 50 members of the group will participate in a parade on Oct. 15 that will be headed by the "Space Caddy," a 1969 Cadillac that has a giant flying saucer hooked on to the roof.
Various Unarians will walk behind each other holding a banner of a different planet in the Confederation such as Valneza, Din and Zeton, and some doves will be released in the name of intergalactic peace.
In addition, newbies will be invited to visit a 60-acre parcel near Jamul, Calif., where 33 spaceships are expected to land in the not-too-distant future -- on top of each other, by the way -- and build a universe of sorts, according to Unarius member Decie Hook, who, like most Unarians, gets her information from books that are telepathically transceived from the E.T.s on other planets and dimensions.
Unarius came to fame thanks to its flamboyant co-founder Ruth L. Norman, who appeared on many talk shows throughout the '70s and '80s dressed in brightly colored wigs and outfits.
Nonbelievers say Norman died in 1993 at the age of 93, but Unarius members, like Kennedy, say she "transitioned" to another world.
The exact arrival date for the Space Brothers -- the term used by Unarians to describe their E.T. compadres -- is anyone's guess because they seem to be on their own time. Thirty years ago, the group used to make predictions on the arrival date. Now, they just take the "she'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes" approach.

"They're waiting for us to evolve spiritually," Kennedy said.
Anyone who has spent time on this planet knows that could take years, but Kennedy believes the recent Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street demonstrations are a positive sign in that direction.
"Events like these show that this is not a fair society for all people," she said. "Combine that with the natural disasters like the Japan tsunami and Germany's decision to ban nuclear power and you have a giant wake-up call."
However, fellow Unarian David Reynolds says that rising up against the problem is only one step. Recognizing what you did in a past life toward oppressing the poor is the next.
"The Wall Street occupation is a sign of people waking and overthrowing negative energy, but you have to think about what you did in a previous lifetime, such as back in ancient Rome -- people were heavily taxed there, too," said Reynolds.
As part of the conclave, Reynolds will speak about "Starship: Voyager," a spaceship from Vixall (which he says is the most scientifically advanced planet in the Confederation) that set off on a journey to other planets that had also discovered the Unarius teachings.
"It sounds amazingly like 'Star Trek,'" Reynolds conceded. "And I know that the original book was transceived in 1985 so it's relatively recent [and] begs the question, 'Who inspired who?'"
Kennedy doesn't know how many people will show up to the actual conclave, but says she expects thousands to watch online.
She says that however people get the message is up to them, not her or any of the other Unarians.
"We're studying teaching of self-healing and science, " she said. "We're not here to convert. I was already involved in that in a past life."
