Specialities of calendar days


Note :-- I have taken care to mention correct dates for various special days. But I have noticed that, various sources / media inform about different dates for certain special days or even the dates vary from preceding year to succeeding year. I don't know the reason. If you came across any discrepancy or if you know more on this topic, do send me an e-mail on address mentioned below.
