General Events:
Global Forgiveness Day
July 7, 2015 in the World
Global Forgiveness Day is observed on July 07, 2015. It is a day to forgive, and a day to be forgiven! It was created in 1994 by the Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors. Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments. Forgiveness is the renunciation or cessation of resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offence, disagreement, or mistake, or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution.
Forgiveness may be considered simply in terms of the person who forgives including forgiving themselves, in terms of the person forgiven or in terms of the relationship between the forgiver and the person forgiven. In most contexts, forgiveness is granted without any expectation of restorative justice, and without any response on the part of the offender. In practical terms, it may be necessary for the offender to offer some form of acknowledgment, an apology, or even just ask for forgiveness, in order for the wronged person to believe himself able to forgive.
In three separate studies, including one with Catholics and Protestants from Northern Ireland whose family members were murdered in the political violence, he found that people who are taught how to forgive become less angry, feel less hurt, are more optimistic, become more forgiving in a variety of situations, and become more compassionate and self-confident. His studies show a reduction in experience of stress, physical manifestations of stress, and an increase in vitality.

Chocolate Day 2015
July 7, 2015 in the World
There are a number of dates throughout the year promoting variations of local, national or international Chocolate Day – Chocolate Day observed on July 07, 2015 is the true, definitive, purist ‘Chocolate Day‘.
Enjoy this day by eating a proper amount of chocolate without remorse and guilt! Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world. Chocolate chip cookies have become very common, and very popular, in most parts of Europe and North America. Gifts of chocolate molded into different shapes have become traditional on certain holidays. Chocolate is also used in cold and hot beverages, to produce chocolate milk and hot chocolate.
Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree, a small evergreen tree native to the deep tropical region of the Americas. Roughly two-thirds of the entire world’s cocoa is produced in West Africa, with 43% sourced from Côte d’Ivoire, where child labor is a common practice to obtain the product. According to the World Cocoa Foundation, some 50 million people around the world depend on cocoa as a source of livelihood.
The health effects of chocolate refer to the possible beneficial or detrimental physiological effects of eating chocolate mainly for pleasure. For example, cocoa and dark chocolate may support cardiovascular health. Other effects under preliminary research include reduced risks of cancer, coughing and heart disease.

Tanabata 2015
July 7, 2015 in Japan
Tanabata takes place on July 07, 2015. Tanabata (meaning “Evening of the seventh”) is a Japanese star festival, originating from the Chinese Qixi Festival. It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.
The date of Tanabata varies by region of the country, but the first festivities begin on July 7 of the Gregorian calendar. The celebration is held at various days between July and August. The original Tanabata date was based on the Japanese lunisolar calendar, which is about a month behind the Gregorian calendar.
In present-day Japan, people generally celebrate this day by writing wishes, sometimes in the form of poetry, on tanzaku, small pieces of paper, and hanging them on bamboo, sometimes with other decorations. The bamboo and decorations are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival, around midnight or on the next day. This resembles the custom of floating paper ships and candles on rivers during Obon.

National Strawberry Sundae Day
July 7, 2015 in the USA
National Strawberry Sundae Day is celebrated on July 07, 2015. The strawberry sundae is a sweet ice cream dessert. It typically consists of one or more scoops of ice cream topped with strawberry sauce or syrup, and in some cases a topping with strawberries. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the origin of the term sundae is obscure; however, it is generally accepted that the spelling “sundae” derives from the word Sunday.
Among the many stories about the invention of the sundae, a frequent theme is that the dish arose in reaction to blue laws prohibiting the sale on Sundays of either ice cream or ice cream soda. The laws are said to have led druggists to produce a Sunday substitute for these popular treats. According to this theory, the spelling was changed to sundae to avoid offending religious sensibilities.
