EDITORS: The On this Day series of graphics started almost 25 years ago in 1996. It offers a print graphic for every day of the year in English, Spanish or Arabic. A digital version is also available that auto-updates providing a fresh image for your website every day of the year (English only - see link below).

The print graphics for each week are downloadable together as a set, and made available two weeks at a time, a week before the first day of the first set.

The digital version GN40881 includes data for every day of the year but may be updated as and if necessary during the year

If you want to search for alternative events or anniversaries you can use the On this day database (see links below or via the online Menu).
