I think they are ignored because they often get ignored because they have a deep theological meaning beyond what they church wants to discuss. When was the last time you heard talk about the transfiguration anywhere in the church. While its signification I think the church would rather skip it's theological heaviness.
More obscurely, January 1 is the Feast of the Holy Name, or of Mary the Mother of God, or other things depending on tradition. The dead are remembered on All Soul's Day, the day after All Saint's. Holy Cross Day is Sept 14. Corpus Christi is the Thursday following Trinity Sunday. Epiphany is on January 6. The Annunciation is March 25 (Note Christmas is exactly 9 months later). The Feast of the Presentation (of Our Lord in the Temple, or Candlemas) is February 2.
There is a good deal of neglect for the lesser of the major festivals and commemorations.
