International Monkey Day

international, world, monkey, day

Date When Celebrated : Always December 14

On this day, back in the year 2000, artist Casey Sorrow was in art school. Casey jokingly sketched a monkey on a friends calendar... and a new special day was born.

Monkey Day is not a day to monkey around. It is a day to celebrate and enjoy monkeys of all kinds. We encourage you to do as Casey did... draw pictures of monkeys today.

There is no shortage of monkeys to honor. Last time they counted, there were over 260 species of monkeys.  

Did You Know? There are over 260 species of monkeys, including apes, lemurs and tarsiers.

This holiday is sometimes referred to as "International Monkey Day", and sometimes it is called "World Monkey Day". As of yet, there is no international or world organization that has officially sanctioned this day. We hope this does not deter you from celebrating this very special day.
