Thursday, the 18th of June, 2015 is the 169th day in 2015 and in the 25th calendar week.
General Events:
Autistic Pride Day
June 18, 2015 in the World
Autistic Pride Day is is a celebration of the neurodiversity of people on the autism spectrum held on June 18, 2015. The day is celebrated annually and “Autistic pride” stands for pride in autism, about shifting views of autism from “disease” to “difference”. It observes the diversity various neurological types express.
Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child’s life. In June 2005, some organizations launched the first annual Autistic Pride Day, with events around the world. Autistic pride asserts that autistic people are not sick; rather, they have a unique set of characteristics that provide them many rewards and challenges, not unlike their non-autistic peers.
Autistic Pride Day is an Aspies for Freedom initiative, an autism rights group that aims to educate the general public with initiatives to end ignorance of the issues involving the autistic community. Every year there is a main theme for the Autistic Pride Day, like it was “Acceptance not cure” in 2005, “Perspectives, not fear” in 2010 and “Recognize, Respect, Include” in 2011.

International Panic Day
June 18, 2015 in the World
International Panic Day is observed on June 18, 2015. International Panic Day is no reason or even challenge to panic. It is actually the opposite: on this day people should take the cause and refuse any kind of stress. Anything that represents the literal opposite of being confused and in panic is appreciated on International Panic Day.
Idea would be to celebrate the day by taking a step back from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Make some waffles and refuse to share, retreat to a favourite coffee shop and spend the day with a long past due library book, lounge in a bath overflowing with bubbles, or spend quality time with a close friend.

Go Fishing Day
June 18, 2015 in the World
Go Fishing Day takes place on June 18, 2015. Unsurprisingly people are supposed to go fishing on Go Fishing Day. Fishing is considered to be a peaceful activity. Getting up early and going to a lake or river for fishing increases the chances to successfully catch some fish. Some people like to spend a whole day outside, and even if they do not catch anything they do not find it boring. Go fishing on Go Fishing Day is a great opportunity to leave behind city noises, stress and the hectic pace. It is best done all alone or in company of quite people – otherwise the fish will not bite.
With fishing as a recreational sport on the up in younger generations, there’s never been more locations to have a go at certain types of fishing. Try something new, or stick with what you’re already good at… either way, make sure you go fishing on June 18th.

Waterloo Day 2015
June 18, 2015 in United Kingdom
Waterloo Day is observed on June 18. 2015. It is a commemoration day dedicated to the Battle of Waterloo, in 1815. The fight took place near Waterloo (which belongs to Belgium today), a former part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. The French army under the command of Napoléon Bonaparte was defeated by the army of the Seventh Coalition, led by General Wellington.
Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military, revolutionary dictator and emperor of the French. He is ranked as one of the greatest commanders and one of the most celebrated and controversial political figures in history.
The Waterloo Ceremony takes place at Windsor Castle each year. A silk French tricolour, with gold embroidery, and imprinted with the year of presentation upon it, is handed to HM The Queen by the Duke on the anniversary of the victory of the battle, while the Queen is at Windsor. Therefore a new flag is produced each year.

National Splurge Day
June 18, 2015 in the USA
Nobody needs to suffer from a bad conscience if he splurges on National Splurge Day. This extraordinary holiday was invented by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, an American eventologist. Her request on National Splurge Day is to splurge, shop and squander as much as possible. Normally people try to rather avoid splurging and live economically.
On National Splurge Day it would be okay to buy overprized things and show everyone you can afford it. It is also possible to eat chocolate during a diet or to change clothes several times a day. However, exaggeration should be avoided or otherwise it would take all other days of the year to balance the debauchery on National Splurge Day…

Ramadan 2015
June 18 to July 18, 2015 in the World
Ramadan takes place between June 18 and July 18, 2015. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which is spent by Muslims fasting from dawn to sunset, and with extra prayers. While fasting Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations. As the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, Ramadan begins when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. The religious feast is celebrated during the entire month.
During Ramadan the Quran was sent to the lowest heaven. The Islamic prophet Muhammad told his followers that the gates of Heaven would be open during Ramadan and the gates of Hell (Jahannam) would be closed. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and the first day after Ramadan (beginning of the month Shawwal) is celebrated as the Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking Fast). Fasting during Ramadan is obligatory for adult Muslims, except those who are elderly, suffering from an illness, travelling, pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic or going through menstrual bleeding.
