Silence Day 2015
July 10, 2015 in the World
Silence Day takes place on July 10, 2015. Silence Day is the name the followers of Meher Baba give to their practice of commemorating July 10 of each year by maintaining verbal silence for twenty-four hours. From July 10, 1925 until his death in 1969, Meher Baba was silent. He communicated first by using an alphabet board, and later by hand gestures which were interpreted and spoken out by one of his mandali (devoted disciples), usually by his disciple Eruch Jessawala. For many years, Baba asked his followers to undertake austerities on this date. These took various forms: in addition to keeping silence, Baba had asked his followers to fast, to pray, to repeat the names of God, and similar practices. In his last request to his followers on the subject, in 1968, he asked only that they keep silent.

Cow Appreciation Day
July 10, 2015 in the World
Cow Appreciation Day takes place on July 10, 2015. It is a day to remind us how integral cows are to our daily life. In some regions, such as parts of India, cows have significant religious meaning. Cows are sometimes considered as the oldest form of wealth. Cattle today are the basis of a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide.
The production of milk, which is also made into cheese, butter, and other dairy products, is comparable in economic size to beef production, and provides an important part of the food supply. To celebrate Cow Appreciation Day you can either enjoy some dairy products or stop using cow products for a day.

National Clerihew Day
July 10, 2015 in the USA
July 10 of each year celebrates National Clerihew Day in the United States.  Invented by Edmund Clerihew Bently, a clerihew is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem.

A clerihew has the following properties:
– It is biographical and usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of   view; it pokes fun at mostly famous people
– It has four lines of irregular length and metre (for comic effect)
– The rhyme structure is AABB; the subject matter and wording are often humorously contrived in order to achieve a rhyme, including the use of phrases in Latin, French and other non-English languages
– The first line contains, and may consist solely of, the subject’s name.”

English novelist and humorist, Edmund Clerihew Bently (July 10, 1875 – March 30, 1956), was a 16 year old student when he thought up the lines for his first ever clerihew.
