I'm sure that we all have some form of cabin fever these days — whether we are essential employees who still hit the streets for work or stuck at home.

There are any number of virtual things to do these days thank goodness, from ballet lessons and kickboxing classes, to happy hours and orchestra concerts.

To help us come up with creative ways to whittle down the many choices of webinars, Houseparty meetups, Zoom conferences and live social media gatherings, we have the National Day Calendar.

Support The Philadelphia Tribune

Now, more than ever, the world needs trustworthy reporting—but good journalism isn’t free. Please support the nation's longest continuously published newspaper serving the African American community by making a contribution.

This calendar is the "official, authoritative source for fun, unusual and unique national days." It also lists monthly  observances throughout its pages.

I'll update the list weekly and put up items for two-week periods. Please enjoy, stay safe and stay healthy.
