World Book and Copyright Day

  • World Book and Copyright Day, also known as World Book Day is observed on April 23, every year. This day is dedicated to the celebration of literature in all forms and to promote the enjoyment of books. It is also a day to reflect on the past and the future through reading.
  • There are many reasons behind why World Book Day is celebrated on April 23. Some of these include, many prominent authors like William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes, and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died on the same date. Also, this date was a natural choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone to access books, says unesco.org.
  • The theme of World Book and Copyright Day 2024 is 'Read Your Way'. The theme underscores the significance of choice and enjoyment in nurturing a passion for reading.

English Language Day

  • English Language Day at the United Nations is celebrated on the 23rd of April — the date traditionally observed as both the birthday and date of death of William Shakespeare. As well as being the English language's most famous playwright, Shakespeare had a significant impact on modern-day English. Shakespeare's creativity with language meant he contributed hundreds of new words and phrases: 'gossip'; 'fashionable' and 'lonely' were all first used by Shakespeare. He also invented phrases like 'break the ice', 'faint-hearted' and 'love is blind'.
  • English Language Day is the result of a 2010 initiative by the UN's Department of Global Communications, establishing language days for each of the Organisation's six official languages. The purpose of the UN's language days is to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity, and to promote equal use of all six official languages throughout the Organisation.

World Table Tennis Day

  • World Table Tennis Day (WTTD) has been celebrated annually in April since 2015. It is the day we celebrate table tennis, as well as the universality and social inclusiveness the sport represents.

  • WTTD celebrates the joy of playing table tennis for fun, bringing people together, focusing less on competition and more on participation and enjoyment.
  • In 2024, World Table Tennis Day celebrates the theme of 'Diversity and Inclusion'.
