This one is for the British.
You have the chance to add your name to a petition at the Prime Minister's web site of 10 Downing Street.
If you go to the web address
you can add your name to the petition requesting that 12th February, which is Charles Darwin's birthday, be made into a Bank Holiday.
For some time the government has been seeking an additional bank holiday to give to the public.
The memory of Charles Darwin deserves as much.
Isaac Newton already has a day which atheists celebrate, and that is Isaac's birthday on 25th December. [The man that christians choose to think about was not even born on that day, but Isaac Newton really was].
Deadline for signing up is 24 January 2009
