Darwin Day is celebrated on February 12 every year. Whether you are a fan of science or not, you’ve no doubt heard of Charles Darwin. Darwin made many contributions to the scientific world, but none more famous than his Theory of Natural Selection from his 1859 book, On the Origin of Species. We commonly know this as “the survival of the fittest.”

One of the oldest recognized unofficial holidays, Darwin Day promotes all of Darwin’s contributions and commemorates his life works, as well as celebrating scientific study.

The movement to set aside a date to recognize this great man and his work started soon after his death in 1882 and has always been strongest in the U.K., but fans now recognize this day globally.

Great men seem to be born on this day. Abraham Lincoln shares the same birthday as Charles Darwin.

How to Celebrate Darwin Day

If you live in the U.K., you can find festivals and other events dedicated to Darwin Day. If you live in other regions of the world, you can start your own method of recognition by inviting friends over to learn more about Darwin and his discoveries. #DarwinDay
