Have you ever celebrated International Cookie Day or World Chocolate Day? What about the Hindu celebration Diwali or China’s Dragon Boat Festival? Did you know that Van Gogh’s birthday is March 20th or that Anne Frank’s birthday is June 12th?
In anticipation of the impending arrival of 2020 I had fun creating a printable list of over 120 fun days and holidays from all around the world to celebrate in 2020.
The printable calendar (see printing instructions at the bottom of this page) offers a range of holidays and celebrations – festivals representing many different countries and cultures of the world, days that help to raise awareness for a range of important social and environmental issues, birthdays of some of the world’s greatest children’s authors, artists and musicians, and some just plain fun days.
It’s a great resource for teachers with students of all ages, homeschooling families and a range of community groups.

120+ Days to Celebrate in 2020
How can I use this list?
Print out a copy via the link below and use it as a tool for creating awareness of global issues and multicultural celebrations from around the world with the children in your class or family.
You can use it;
- To prompt discussion: ‘Did you know today is…?”
- To engage your children in researching different countries, religions, cultures and customs: ‘What does the Holi festival celebrate? How do the people of India and Nepal celebrate this special day?’
- As a springboard for discussion and research about a range of social and environmental issues: ‘Why do you think there is need for a World Rhino Day?’
- As an invitation to find other days to recognise: ‘Which authors/musicians/artists would you add to this list? Let’s see if we can find their birth dates.”
- To plan events to celebrate as a family or class group.
