    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastille_Day for example tells you that in 1880 ... "On 21 May 1880, Benjamin Raspail proposed a law to have "the Republic choose the 14 July as a yearly national holiday". The Assembly voted in favour of the proposal on 21 May and 8 June.[7] The Senate approved on it 27 and 29 June, favouring 14 July against 4 August (honouring the end of the feudal system on 4 August 1789). The law was made official on 6 July 1880, and the Ministry of the Interior recommended to Prefects that the day should be "celebrated with all the brilliance that the local resources allow".[cite this quote] Indeed, the celebrations of the new holiday in 1880 were particularly magnificent."

    Era? I think we'd just say late 19th century.

    or Romantic or Victorian http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_periods We tend not to slice time so much as it gets closer to our own, but just look at the years. It's an odd question to ask you, in what "era" these things were instituted as holidays.
