As you all know we celebrate World Book Day on the 23rd April.

Although 23 April is often stated as the anniversary of the deaths of both William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, this is not strictly correct. Cervantes died on 22 April and was buried on 23 April according the Gregorian calendar; however, at this time England still used the Julian calendar. Whilst Shakespeare died on 23 April by the Julian calendar in use in his own country at the time, he actually died eleven days after Cervantes because of the discrepancy between the two date systems.

The apparent correspondence of the two dates was a fortunate coincidence for UNESCO , that´s why they decided to celebrate theWorld Book Day on that date.
