November 21, 2014 in the World
Every year, November 21 is World Hello Day. The objective is to say hello to ten people on the day. By greeting others, the message is for world leaders to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts. The event began in 1973 by Brian and Michael McCormack in response to the Yom Kippur War.
Since then World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries. It has garnered accolades from people around the globe including politicians, religious leaders, and celebrities. It was also made reference to in the 8th Episode of the First Season of Pushing Daisies in the Episode “Bittersweets” in a conversation between Ned and Chuck.

World Television Day
November 21, 2014 in the World
World Television Day is celebrated on November 21, 2014. In December 1996 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day commemorating the date on which the first World Television Forum was held in 1996. Television, or TV for short, is a telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images that can be monochrome or colored, with or without accompanying sound.
Commercially available since the late 1920s, the television set has become commonplace in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a vehicle for advertising, a source of entertainment, and news. Since the 1950s, television has been the main medium for molding public opinion. Since the 1970s, the availability of video cassettes, laserdiscs, DVDs and now Blu-ray Discs have resulted in the television set frequently being used for viewing recorded as well as broadcast material. In recent years, Internet television has seen the rise of television available via the Internet.
Television genres include a broad range of programming types that entertain, inform, and educate viewers. The most expensive entertainment genres to produce are usually drama and dramatic miniseries. However, other genres, such as historical Western genres, may also have high production costs.

November 21 – 24, 2014 in Mexico
El Buen Fin is observed on November 21, 2014. El Buen Fin (“The Good End” or “The Good Weekend”) is the name given to the third weekend of November in Mexico, and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this day, most major retailers open extremely early and offer all their store’s stuff with the cheapest prices for the year. This is not an official holiday, rather it is a traditional celebration. The purpose of this weekend is to revive the economy by encouraging consumption and improve the quality of life of all Mexican families by implementing promotions and discounts in the prices of various products. It was inspired by the American celebration, Black Friday and emerged as an initiative of Council of Business Coordinator, in association with the federal government and private sector organizations.
