Storytelling Day, 20 Mar Once upon a time, a long, long time ago (well, actually, back in 1991 in Sweden), a Storytelling Day was held. The ethos behind this event caught on around the globe, and now we celebrate World Storytelling Day. The aim is to celebrate the art of oral storytelling, with as many people as possible around the world telling and listening to stories in their own languages. So, go on, sit down with your friends and loved ones and celebrate this week with stores. The End.
