Are there any feasts that show up on the typika of every Orthodox church aside from Pascha and the 12 great feasts?

Here are but a few, off the top of my head:

Circumcision of the Lord/St Basil the Great
Mid-Pentecost
Beheading of St John the Baptist
Nativity of St John the Baptist
Conception of St John the Baptist
Conception of the Mother of God
Holy Protection of the Mother of God
Archangels Michael, Gabriel and the Assembly of the Heavenly Hosts
St Nicholas of Myra (and the feasts of many of the saints of the Patristic and pre-schism era)
The Saturdays and Sundays of Great Lent, including Lazarus' Saturday
The Sundays of the Pentecostarion period (Thomas' Sunday to the Sunday of the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council)
The two Sundays before the Nativity of the Lord

Also the Three Hierarchs
All Saints (which is during the Pentecostarion, followed by all saints of the local church)

The whole Paschal cycle (except for the church in Finland).

At least 90% of the saints commemorated as part of the Menaion cycle.
