There are events that I had intended to include but decided not to do so. Some examples are Australia day, Canada day, and National Foundation Day in Japan. What all these events have in common is that they are small and have only happened in the last year (2021). I want this calendar to contain events that I know are recurring every year, and not events that may recur. If these small events return, I can add them later on.
As I wrote this, 3 new small events have taken place in the last 3 days. This shows that there will probably be more such small events in the future. But it also shows that if I were to include these small events, this guide would be very long and quite messy. I want the guide to be clear and distinct and have events that takes place continuously.
The images used in this guide is from the War Thunder website, from respectively event. I think they represent the different events well. I would not be able to create something similar, so that's why I've used them.
