For years, this has been the go-to reference to see what is being celebrated on any given day in the U.S. and around the world. Updated for 2023, the spotlight section gives information on different anniversaries from 400 years ago to the last 50 years. Entries—all 12,500 of them—range from astronomical, religious, national, international, and civic special days, weeks, and months, to anniversaries, birthdays, events, and festivals. The entries are as short as two lines or as long as paragraphs. It also lists different types of calendars, Chinese included. The time-zones section looks at standard and daylight times. This resource incorporates hurricane names and facts about presidents, state governors, U.S. senators, the U.S. Supreme Court, and counties in North America. It also contains information about major awards in 2021 and 2022. For easy navigation, there’s a table of contents and an index that’s more than 90 pages.
VERDICT Recommended for all reference collections as a quick aid.
