Where did arts & entertainment holidays come from?

Arts and entertainment holidays come from here, there, and everywhere! And that is because different cultures all over the world have their own unique history and traditions. Which means there is always something amazing to celebrate!

International Jazz Day on April 30 was created by UNESCO in 2011 and it is led by legendary musician Herbie Hancock to promote jazz and its wonderful intercultural influence. If jazz is not your thing, think about Mean Girls Day on October 3. National Today and Mean Girls on Broadway made this holiday official in 2018. We know many fans will be pleased. Another favorite is National Art Day, celebrated all over the US on October 25. It is a day celebrated by all artist and creative minds.

And the list goes on! So put on your dancing shoes, fire up your imagination, pick a muse, or binge watch something… celebrate and do more of what makes you happy.
