Today we celebrate:

World Hello Day This is a day that was begun in 1973 because of the problems between Israel and Egypt. Yes, I know, I don't remember what was up with that either. I had to look it up.  I found out that it was called the Yom Kippur War, Ramadan War or the October War. Several Arab countries led by Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israel on Yom Kippur.  It also happened to be during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, hence one of the names.  The war lasted 20 days before a ceasefire was arranged.  One hundred and eighty countries have celebrated this day ever since. The goal is to greet ten people today to spread a message to world leaders and encourage them to talk about their problems instead of fighting.

World Television Day – Declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 1996, this is a day that commemorates the anniversary of the World Television Forum that year.

False Confession Day – This is a day to make a false confession to some transgression that you didn't commit. Why, you ask? I haven't the slightest idea.  But I do have some advice:  If you’re going to do it, do it up big, just don’t do it in front of a judge!

To celebrate today, say hello to the first ten people you meet today and invent some dastardly deed that you can make a false confession to before you go home to watch television.
