El 23 de Abril se celebra el Día Mundial del Libro, coincidiendo con la fecha de la muerte de Cervantes y Shakespeare. La celebración tiene su origen en la fiesta de Sant Jordi, una tradición centenaria catalana que ha ido popularizándose con el tiempo, en la que los enamorados se regalan un libro y una rosa respectivamente.
