There's a great source for this information called "Chases annual events"
which many libraries have. It lists important days in history, birthdays,
festivals, and commemmeratives ("National Dental Floss Week" or whatever).
I've frequently used it on courses that I've staffed where we wanted to use
a "famous dates" minute in the open ceremonies.
Since it's an annual your local library probably throws the old one out
every year--maybe you can catch it.
