However, the international days-holidays much more than we think. They are all established by the UN and UNESCO, and if not check in with us, then surely at some point the world is celebrated in a big way.

In February, in addition to Valentine’s Day, is celebrated the world day of the sick (World Day of the Sick) – February 11.

And when the singing cats reaches its climax, it was the middle of the month, the day of PI – March 14. No, the celebration is not associated with obscene thoughts about cats, it is about the number PI, known to us all as 3.14 since high school. Why March 14? Everything is simple – 3 month calendar, 14 – day, and all together 3,14.


April begins with a Day of Laughter, but it is much more serious – 11 April every year is celebrated as international day of liberation of prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. April 11, 1945, the prisoners of Buchenwald lifted an international uprising against the Nazis and were released. It seems so long ago it was. But not for those who went through the horrors of the Nazi torture chambers.

And on April 28 the international labour organization (ILO) announced the world day of labour protection, for the first time it was celebrated in 2003.
