International Holidays

Some holidays are only celebrated in certain regions, or even certain towns — others are celebrated across the globe, bringing together different nations under a common cause. At National Today, we love celebrating 19 international holidays.

Where do international days come from?

Some international holidays are organized by the WHO, UN, or other international governing bodies. Others are created by brands looking to expand global reach and awareness around products. But whatever the event, origin, or cause, all international holidays offer an opportunity for celebrants to connect across borders.

How to submit an international holiday
