    every year on June 8.

    It's not a public holiday, but people aroundthe world celebrate this special day every year on June 8. (quoted from an English textbook published in Taiwan)

    Can I say, "It's not a public hliday, but people aroundthe world celebrate this special day on June 8 every year "?

    What's the difference between every year on June 8 and on June 8 every year?

    sitifan, you need to edit the incorrect spelling of 'holiday'.

    Re: every year on June 8.

    In your first post, after you wrote "Can I say ...?" you simply copied the original sentence, using the same word order in each one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have edited the incorrect order. Thank you for your response.

    As the above link shows, the order of adverbs of place does affect the meaning of a sentence.
    That's why I am curious if the order of adverbs of time has a similar effect.

    I don't think it alters the meaning significantly in the sentences in that thread.
