Hello, Do you celebrate or have ever celebrated one of the language-related festive days? I found quite a lot of them browsing UN's site and some other resources on the web. If you know of some other days, please let me know! Here's the list: February, 14 - International Book Giving Day February, 21 - International Mother Language Day March, 4 - National Grammar Day in the USA March, 20 - International Francophonie Day March, 21 - World Poetry Day April, 20 - Chinese Language Day April, 23 - World Book and Copyright Day + World English Language Day June, 6 - Russian Language Day 2nd Saturday in September - German Language Day September, 26 - European Day of Languages September, 30 - International Translation Day October, 9 - Hangul Day in South Korea October, 12 - Spanish Language Day December, 18 - World Arabic Language Day Personally, I've only ever had some "celebration" of a kind for Francophonie Day because French authorities always prepare some interesting contests and events for this day. I also celebrate my very own "holiday" in February - a particular day when, some long time ago when I was a schoolgirl, I decided to seriously study languages and use them in my future work. What about you? Do you have some special days of your own? Do you ever celebrate the ones I've mentioned above? Also, do you have any ideas how one could spend such a day best? I'd like to commemorate some of these days next year and I'm looking for ideas Thank you all in advance. Can't wait to hear your thoughts! Ania
