Ever wonder when the dates of upcoming holidays are but don't have a calendar handy? Day-Finder.com brings a simple solution to internet-users by allowing them to look up or search for the dates (and days of the week) of most national and religious holidays. For example, the website tells us that Daylight Savings 2012 consists of Spring Forward, which will occur on Sunday, March 11, and Fall Back, which will occur on Sunday, November 4.
Evan Mendelsohn, the creator of the website, started it when he kept missing important holidays like Mothers Day. Mendelsohn says that the information on Day-Finder.com has proved to be extremely valuable to the thousands of people that visit the site each day. "This is a mobile generation and people want information on the go," states Mendelsohn. "They are out and about and need to figure out when fathers day is so they can buy a gift, and that's when they come to our site." He added, "In a time where people carry cell phones with internet access instead of calendars, Day-Finder.com has proved to be helpful for the on-the-go person who needs to quickly look up an upcoming holiday."
Day-Finder.com includes date information for all United States holidays. For example, navigating to Day-Finder.com's Mothers Day 2012 page tells you that this holiday will be on Sunday, May 13. Likewise, navigating to Day-Finder.com's Fathers Day 2012 tells you that this holiday will be on Sunday, June 17.
Day-Finder.com has proved to be especially valuable to people planning vacations around certain holidays. Holidays like Ramadan 2012 are worth coordinating travel around because Muslim countries tend to shut down during these times. Popular Muslim destinations, such as Indonesia, may be tough to travel around if a tourist chooses vacation time during Ramadan, which lasts for nearly one month each year. A poorly timed vacation can mean a lot of wasted money on flights and other travel expenses.
Day-Finder.com also has a wealth of information about popular world events. For example, it includes information on the controversial apocalypse which is scheduled to occur on December 21, 2012 according to the Mayans. Day-Finder.com also gives information about the significance of holidays such as Presidents Day or Veterans Day, which are often observed but not truly appreciated.
One thing is certain. As our increasingly tech-savvy culture continues to embrace the digital age of cell phones and on-the-go internet access, websites like Day-Finder.com will serve an important purpose of giving impulse-driven people quick access to information when they need it.
