Talk:Calendar of events and festivals
You have to edit Template:Months to change this, but this template gets included at the bottom of all the months too, hence the horizontal strip design. Just in case anyone was confused by this -- Nojer2 08:25, 6 Jan 2005 (EST)
Organization of Monthly Pages
How should we organize them? I'd suggest seperating events with specific dates from those that are listed with only a general timeframe ("in october every year", for example). -- Nils 20:05, 2 Apr 2004 (EST)
And should we list the specific date of annual events when we have a specific date, but only for say, 2004? Matthewmayer 16:45, 4 Apr 2004 (EDT)
I went ahead and suggested a standard format. I still like "Month DD" more than "Month DDth", but the latter seems to be more common in the existing entries -- comments welcome. Jpatokal 10:00, 31 Jul 2005 (EDT)
Calendar per country
I think it's better to make a calendar per country. If I'm travelling in Bolivia I don't really care if it's chinese new year on the other side of the world today.
It also leaves more room for small local events which, for travellers, can be as much or even more fun than the big events. It also possible to include for example election dates in politically unstable countries and music concerts, things also interresting for travellers.
Futhermore some events (carnaval for example) are celebrated very differently in different countries. If we break it up we can give more specific info about where to go, if you should make reservation in advance and what you should expect of it.
