World Commemorative Dates

I decided to organize a list of all the world's commemorative dates, I feel that it will helps me to have some ideas for communication on social networks or to create campaigns on e-commerce. Some moments can't be useful and other can give great ideas to communicate something funny and interesting.


But be careful, only when it makes sense! Always putting commemorative dates just because you don't have any better idea is not good, we should focus on showing the public the product and/or service that our client sells.


The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN adopted this tool, thus helping to promote international awareness and action on various issues, or just to commemorate anniversaries of important events in history.
