General Events:
Fiestas Patrias
September 18, 2015 in Chile
Fiestas Patrias takes place on September 18, 2015. The Fiestas Patrias of Chile consists of two days: September 18, in commemoration of the proclamation of the First Governing Body of 1810, and marking the beginning of the Chilean independence process. September 19, known as the “Day of the Glories of the Army”. Within Chile the Fiestas Patrias are often referred to as the Dieciocho, or “18th” because the celebration occurs on September 18. Unofficially, the celebration can last for around a week, depending on when it falls. Most schools and jobs declare a week-long vacation for the holiday. The celebration of Fiestas Patrias is an expression of Chilean culture. Traditional activities associated with the Dieciocho include Chilean rodeo, dancing the cueca, going to fondas, and barbecue. Officially, activities on September 18 are centered around a religious celebration “Te Deum Ecuménico de Fiestas Patrias”.

National POW/MIA Recognition Day is celebrated on September 18, 2015. In the United States, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed on the third Friday in September.

This day was established by an Act of Congress, by the passage of Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act.

World Water Monitoring Day
September 18, 2015 in the World
For more than a decade, World Water Monitoring Day (WWMD) has provided a platform for increasing public awareness of water quality through a citizen science project that monitors local water resources around the globe.
Yet in recent years, WWMD has become something of a misnomer since activities have not been restricted to just one day.
Officially, WWMD is still observed on September 18, but since 2009, the testing and reporting period has been extended fromMarch 22 through December 31. As a result, the program has grown from about 30,000 participants to nearly 340,000 over the past five years.
In recognition of the extended timeframe and to promote year-round involvement, World Water Monitoring Day will now be known as the World Water Monitoring Challenge. Along with the name change, organizers have updated their website with interactive reporting features and support materials for educators and civic groups.
