    G4G has been holding virtual Celebration of Mind lectures on the 21st of each month since October 2020 and we will continue to do so. This year, we will have a special virtual lecture on October 21st to celebrate Martin Gardner’s birthday (read more below) and we encourage you to hold your own in-person or virtual celebration. On our website, you will find information about this worldwide celebration and how to host an event. There are all types of resources for hosts, including dozens of new videos.
