Calendar of Events

I found Earth Calendar by accident last year and I love it. So I'm passing it on to you, my anonymous readership. The website lists holidays from all over the world and for every religion, even paganism.

With that said, were you aware that March 3rd is World Book Day?

Or that April 2nd is International Children's Book Day?

January 16th is Religious Freedom Day. Perhaps we should tell the fundamentalists of every religion that on this day in particular there can be no whining of secularism.

How can we have a Leif Erikson Day when supposedly Columbus was the first to discover America? And why is this such an obscure holiday when liars such as Columbus are still revered?

Seriously, check out the interesting and somewhat obscure holidays some, most or all the United States observes. Some are quite laughable, such as Sweetest Day.
