At Days Of The Year, we believe that every day should be celebrated and that today is the day! We’re the expert curators of the world’s weird, funny, wonderful, unknown and bizarre national days.

We’re on a mission to create the ultimate guide to celebrating each and every day, giving you every excuse to get out there and celebrate everything from Waffle Iron Day to Haiku Poetry Day.

With over 2,000 reasons to get out there and try something new, what are you waiting for?

Our Mission

We gather all the special holidays, moments and occasions from around the world that bring people together, and help everyone celebrate them with special events, helpful tips and heaps of fun.

What kind of days do we commemorate? All of them! But what about Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas!? Well, you know about those days innately! But did you know that March 14th is International Ask a Question Day or that August 16th is Tell A Joke Day. We love to celebrate those can’t-be-missed quirky occasions.

And do you know the best part? We’re always adding more and more to the calendar!

For each day, we curate content with extensive and exciting holiday history, facts that will blow your mind, and amazing ways to truly celebrate the day to its fullest.

We strive to keep you up-to-date and brighten your day with fun posts on Twitter and Facebook. Celebrating with you, our community of celebrators from around the world that message, email and tweet us every day with how they’re embracing the day.

At Days Of The Year, we believe every day is special. Or delicious. Or fluffy. Or meaningful. Or hilarious (did we mention Tell A Joke Day?)
