Welcome to the Wilson Dutra 2017 Celebrations Calendar!

“Of course there are worlds. Millions of them! Every star you see has worlds, and most of those you don’t see.” – Isaac Asimov, Pebble in the Sky

If you are reading this blog post right now, you may have followed a secret link here. If not, and you somehow stumbled upon this blog, let us know, and we can send you one of our 2017 calendars (pending availability). This post serves to give background on what those tiny symbols on the calendar are.

Here at Wilson Dutra, we are firm believers in celebration.  We celebrate the amazing…and that includes the big, the huge, the small, even the tiniest bit of the extraordinary. We find wonder every day.

We hope to inspire a little bit of magic with our calendar, perhaps giving ideas on things to celebrate this year.  So, each little icon in the calendar stands for a holiday, some underappreciated.  National Square Root Day does not get the recognition it deserves.

Please see all of our holiday picks below.  Clearly, some were chosen based on our personal preferences.  Camille definitely selected Twilight Zone Day (5/11) and Skyrim Day (11/11), which may not be an official holiday but she celebrates the anniversary of its release in 2011 anyhow.  Both Star Wars Day (5/4) and Mario Day (3/10) come from Fernando, which should come as no surprise to those who know him.

Any day with an American flag on the calendar or marked with an asterisk below is a federal holiday and may affect patent or trademark filing dates.  If you see that one of your favorite holidays is missing, let us know! Maybe it will make it into next year’s calendar!
