The Party Calendar

With this calender every day there's an excuse for a party.

With this calender every day there’s an excuse for a party.

You ever feel guilty that you are in the mood to drink, but there seems to be no occasion? Well fear no more, there’s always an occasion. And when your friends and relatives start to worry why you get hammered on an average Monday or Wednesday just point to this calendar. This is the ultimate party agenda with celebrations all over the world. Our perfect excuse to be drunk 365 years in a row. And when the year has an extra day every four years that’s worth celebrating too of course. We hope to add more and more festivities to this list.

A lot of holidays are not mentioned for the simple reason that they don’t always fall on the same date. Christian, Islamic or Budhist celebrations for example. But also Chinese festivities do not conform with the Western calender. So no Carnaval, Easter or even International Izbuhvam Day in this list, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate them.

    • Hmmm not a big fan of this baby hype… But the 22nd of July was still open and that’s unacceptable. I came up with Pi Approximation Day and the birthday of the late king Sobhuza II of Swaziland! 😉


  1. Can I add Keith Richards’ birthday on the 18th of December? If there’s one man who deserves his own party day it’s him. Or Charlie Sheen (September 3rd)


  2. World Radio Day? No, tomorrow is Desperation Day (where everyone is desperately looking for a date for Valentine’s Day at the bars). It’s a holiday created by How I Met Your Mother.


    • Good idea… Is this always on the same date? Or a certain Tuesday? Cause those events that switch dates every year we didn’t put in this calendar unfortunately.


  3. 14th of May – International Day of Freelancer;
    30th of September – International Translation Day.


  4. I could add a Drunkards guide to Halloween Party drinking in costume. Creative in all the right catagories. Drinks that youve never heard of & Characters youve never seen w/ a buzz.

    • Hey Colin,
      Of course these great days should be celebrated. But like Easter and a few other holidays including International Izbuhvam Day the International Culture of Drink Days don’t have a steady date, so we can’t put it on the calendar. However you can be sure I’ll raise a few glasses this weekend!
