Note that some traditions have festivals and dates that start at sundown or in the evening of the night before, such as (Jewish, Muslim and some Pagan events). There are few Hindu dates on these calendars yet, due to the complexity & multiplicity of all the various calendars in use. Likewise, there are few south-east Asian calendar dates.
