Evolution Day or All Your Uncles Are Monkeys Day
When is Evolution Day? This holiday is always observed on November 24
Today is Evolution Day, a November 24 Holiday. This very special day for all homo sapiens is also called “All Our Uncles Are Monkeys Day“. The latter title refers to the fact that our ancestors evolved from apes. Now here is a very special fun day, if there ever was one. It is very appropriate that you go ape as you celebrate this fun holiday.
Today is the anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s book: On the Origin of Species in 1859. His controversial theory turned the world upside down, in his thinking of how we came to be. And it remains controversial to this day.

“I believe in evolution. But, I also believe, when I hike the Grand Canyon and see it at sunset, the hand of God is there also.” – – John McCain
History and Origin of Evolution Day
We did not find who declared or created this special day of celebration. Let’s face it, our evolution is indeed a very important event to be celebrated.
We also did not find out when this special day was created. Perhaps, you can narrow it down to sometime between this year and 1859, when Darwin published his Theory of Evolution. I like to think we have been celebrating this special day since the dawn of mankind.
