If you thought that there was no such thing, think again!
Men’s Day is celebrated in Brazil on 15 July, and although there are no particular festivities or commemorations – as there are with Women’s Day – it’s main objective is to draw attention to men’s health issues. The date has been in place since 1992 and was decided on by the National Writers Order.
For many countries – including the United Kingdom, International Men’s Day takes place on 19 November, and has similar aims to the aforementioned Brazilian version. November Blue is the symbolic name which refers to the time during which men are encouraged to check their general health, or preventatively check for problems commonly affecting males, such as prostate cancer. Not to be left out, November Blue also occurs in Brazil, which means Brazilian men have two periods of the year during which they are reminded to take care of themselves!
