The calendar is a detailed collection of holidays around the world. It covers a wide range of holidays, from religious to environmental and fun ones. Have you ever heard of Elephant Appreciation Day or International Friendship Day?
These are some of the 285 holidays included:
- Birthday of Confucius
- Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival
- Rosh Hashanah
- Vaisakhi (Sikh New Year)
- Shichi–Go–San (Shinto)
- Milad un Nabi (Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday, Islam)
- International Polar Bear Day
- Martenitsa day (Bulgaria and Balkan Peninsula)
- Endangered Species Day
- National Aboriginal Day (Canada)
…. and many, many more!
The calendar is very useful for multicultural bloggers and for teachers who want to plan global diversity activities.
To purchase the Diversity Calendar 2016-17, visit the Kid World Citizen store at Teachers Pay Teachers.
