Holidays in opera

Can you name the holiday celebrated in, or perhaps by, the following operatic works? La Boheme (sorry, it won't let me used ASCI symbols), Amahl and the Night Visitors, La Traviata, Cavaleria Rusticana, Die Meistersinger von Nuremburg, Nabuco, and Pagliacci.

Alas, no! Do you happen to have any videos I could borrow? I remember enjoying La Bohem but I can't even answer that one.

Ooh, ooh! I know Amahl and the Night Visitors! The Night Visitors are three kings, following a star, are they not? So the holiday would be..Epiphany!

Okay, I cheated and looked up what I could. Cavalleria: Easter? Die Meistersinger: Midsummer's Day. Nabucco seems to be about Purim?? Those were all I could find right now.

A little bird told me it was your birthday. My youngest daughter shares this day. Have a grand celebration, but don't drink a Nebuchadnezzar of champagne!
