National Blue Ribbon Week
April 5-11, 2015 in the USA
Ever since the spring of 1989 when a Virginia Grandmother named Bonnie began wearing a Blue Ribbon as a tribute to her grandson, a three year old whose mother’s abusive boyfriend killed him, concerned citizens all over America have worn the blue ribbon as a symbol to prevent child abuse and neglect.
The Blue Ribbon Campaign has gained national momentum. It is one way that everyone can play a role in the awareness of violence against children — in all its forms. By demonstrating your concern and commitment, others will want to wear the ribbon too. It’s a powerful way to rally everyone in your community to support public awareness for child abuse prevention and programs that help parents and children.

Gold Star Wives Day
April 5, 2015 in the USA
The Gold Star Wives of America was formed before the end of World War II to provide support for the spouses and children of those who lost their lives while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States.[1] The first meeting was on April 5, 1945, when four young widows met in Marie Jordan’s apartment on West 20th Street in New York City. One week later, President Franklin D. Roosevelt died. Shortly thereafter, Eleanor Roosevelt, the widow of the Commander-in-Chief, joined the organization.
Gold Star Wives was first incorporated in the State of New York on December 15, 1945. On December 4, 1980 The Gold Star Wives were granted a Federal Charter by Congress and recognized as a unique organization capable of providing a service not available from any other organization.

Easter 2015
April 5, 2015 in the World
Easter is the most important annual religious feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to Christian scripture, Jesus was resurrected from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion.
Some Christians celebrate this resurrection on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or ResurrectionSunday), two days after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. Easter also refers to the season of the church year called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and penance.
As with many other Christian dates, the celebration of Easter extends beyond the church. Since its origins, it has been a time of celebration and feasting and many Traditional Easter games and customs developed, such as Egg rolling, Egg tapping, Pace egging and Egg decorating. Today Easter is commercially important, seeing wide sales of greeting cards and confectionery such as chocolate Easter eggs, marshmallow bunnies, Peeps, and jelly beans. Even many non-Christians celebrate these aspects of the holiday while eschewing the religious aspects.
