Learn about national holidays and challenge yourself!

“Daily Challenge” is a website that has compiled a list of 366 national and international holidays and occurrences, one for each day of the year and leap day. Based off of the day’s holiday, we thought of an interesting, doable challenge. We then included a resource that related to the challenge or the subject of the holiday. For example, August 4th is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day so we challenge you to bake chocolate chip cookies and then link you to a chocolate chip cookie recipe as a resource.
There are many obscure national/international holidays that the general public is not familiar with. Of these holidays, some are fun and deserve recognition while others are more serious and designed to raise awareness. Also, people often want to try new things but do not know where to start.
We aimed to address this problem by creating a website with three functions: to encourage people to step out of their comfort zones, to promote intriguing national and worldwide holidays, and to provide relevant, interesting resources.
