Ever had a friend or colleague that suddenly has to take a day off work, can't do this or that or needs to take care of something after work/school? Only to find out later that it's as they are having a religious/cultural period like Lent or Ramadan.

Well here's it's always worth looking up online the national cultural events and holidays that come up that you may not be aware of.

Ideally you would want to check the current holidays by month, event, and country/ event/ festival.

Here's an example of next month - December 2010.
