WAYNESBORO, Pa. - If you want to know when Renovation Day is held in Gabon, when the Danes celebrate Hans Christian Anderson Day, when Uruguay notes the Landing of the "33," or when it's Guy Fawkes Day in England, look it up on Patrick Fischetti's Cultural & Festival Day of the World 1998, a poster-size chart.
The diagram lists the dates and names of national, civic and religious holidays for 120 countries.
The best place to see one of Fischetti's posters is on the wall in many American public schools.
Fischetti, 66, who lives on Longwood Drive in Waynesboro when he's not living in his apartment in Washington, D.C., or wintering in Naples, Fla., is founder and president of Educational Extension Systems, a publishing business he started in 1982.
A Scranton, Pa., native, he earned a bachelor's and two master's degrees in education and history and spent his working life traveling the globe for American companies. His expertise was in designing and running business training programs.
