Calendar of cultural and religious dates

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 a useful website that may come in handy in giving you an insight and heads up on the national cultural events and holidays that come up that you may not be aware of. The great thing is you can sort it by month, event, and country/ event/ festival.

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