People from different cultures and regions (e.g. US, Asia, Europe) celebrate their respective religious and civil holidays on different dates. If you don’t want to be caught off guard by cultural holidays of your friends, co-workers or even civil American holidays, check out When is.
It is a useful website where you can easily check on various religious and civil holidays from around the world and US. See important Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and American holidays throughout the year. Simply go to the website, select the calendar and the name of the holiday and get the date for the event.
Since some holidays fall on to different dates every year (like Muslim holidays), the date of the holiday might be different for each calendar year. It even applies to civil holidays as some holidays are celebrated during a particular week of the month (e.g. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May). So you will have to choose your year (e.g. 2013) to see the exact date for the holiday for the year.
For every holiday there is a brief explanation on when it is celebrated and what the holiday is about. The site is pretty simple to navigate and doesn’t require you to register or sign-in.
