World Party Day
April 3, 2015 in the World
World Party Day is celebrated on April 03, 2015. World Party Day (P-Day) is celebrated every year as a synchronized global mass celebration of a better world and the active creation of desirable reality. The celebration has no religious or political ties and recognizes a “universal human right to fun, peace and life.”
The idealized objective is a global Party of all Parties where every person in the world is in synch no matter what they are doing, to appreciate, participate in and celebrate social existence. Via holiday slogans, greetings and mottos, Party is defined as the opposite of War.
Masses of people grew larger by connecting with groups who shared ideals of peace and goals of using human intelligence and resources toward humanitarian progress. A massive worldwide phenomenon now in progress involves millions of individuals, organizations and corporations around the world who are realizing a responsibility and ability to contribute positively to the collective future of humanity and Earth.
The internet, media and communication has accelerated one of the biggest social transformations in human history, facilitating the organization of global movements. Research has begun documenting the emerging social transformation of people around the world uniting for a positive, joyful future for humanity, through a common task.

Find a Rainbow Day
April 3, 2015 in the World
Perhaps one of the more interesting and yet lesser-known holidays is an event that is known as Find a Rainbow Day. As you may have already guessed, this celebration occurs during the month of April each year (after all, the early spring is known for its fair share of these beautifully stunning phenomena).
Find a Rainbow Day is celebrated on April 03, 2015. If it rains on that day, look at the sky – maybe you can find and see a rainbow! A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.
Rainbows are as old as mankind and just as wondrous. Even the Bible tells of the Rainbow appearing after the Great Deluge (and that Flood was also recorded by other cultures as well). Nobody really knows when or why the first Find A Rainbow Day was celebrated, but the association of the rainbow with various things continues on to this day.

National Walk To Work Day
April 3, 2015 in the USA
As people grow older, their metabolism decreases.  Most people get so engrossed with earning a living that they tend to live sedentary lifestyles.  This is especially true with careers involving pure desk jobs or office work.  It had been observed that the tendency to be lazy with physical activity increases as a person ages.  This is why first world countries set aside a day in a year for working people to walk to work.
National Walk to Work Day is held the first Friday of April in the USA and was declared in 2004 by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy G. Thompson. Its yearly observance is spearheaded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services with the support of the American Paediatric Association and Prevention Magazine. The day encourages Americans to walk to work. You should walk on this day at least 30 minutes.
Sustained walking sessions for a minimum period of thirty to sixty minutes a day, five days a week, with the correct walking posture, reduce health risks and have various overall health benefits, such as reducing the chances of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, anxiety and depression. Life expectancy is also increased even for individuals suffering from obesity or high blood pressure. Walking also increases bone health, especially strengthening the hip bone, and lowering the more harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and raises the more useful good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.
The CDC’s (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) fact sheet on the Relationship of Walking to Mortality Among U.S. Adults with Diabetes states that those with diabetes who walked for 2 or more hours a week lowered their mortality rate from all causes by 39%. “Walking lengthened the life of people with diabetes regardless of age, sex, race, body mass index, length of time since diagnosis, and presence of complications or functional limitations.”

National Don’t Go to Work Unless it’s Fun Day
April 3, 2015 in the USA
Don’t Go to Work Unless it’s Fun Day is observed on April 03, 2015. If it’s going to be fun at work on this day, get up and go. Otherwise, stay at home or do whatever you like. But be aware: the idea of not going to work unless the day is going to be fun is risky without asking your boss …
Most people are going to go to work no matter what, so if your one of those people, then we suggest you have lots of fun on this day and try to make it fun for others too!

Good Friday 2015
April 3, 2015 in the World
Good Friday, also called Holy Friday, Black Friday, or Great Friday, a holiday observed primarily by adherents to Christianity commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and often coincides with the Jewish observance of Passover. Based on the scriptural details of the Sanhedrin Trial of Jesus, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most probably on aFriday.
The Catholic Church treats Good Friday as a fast day, which in the Latin Rite of the Church is understood as having only one full meal (but smaller than a regular meal – often substituting meat with fish) and two collations (a smaller repast, two of which together do not equal one full meal). In countries where Good Friday is not a day of rest from work, the afternoon liturgical service is usually put off until a few hours after the recommended time of 3 p.m.
Customs by country
In many English-speaking countries most shops are closed for the day and advertising from television and radio broadcasts is withdrawn to some degree.
In the United States Good Friday is not a government holiday at the federal level; individual states and municipalities may observe the holiday. Private businesses and certain other institutions may close or not for Good Friday, according to their preferences. The stock market is closed on Good Friday. However, the vast majority of businesses are open on GoodFriday. The postal service operates, and banks regulated by the federal government do not close for Good Friday. Schools generally do not close for Good Friday, but the day may fall during spring break.
Ireland, a predominantly Catholic country, prohibits all alcohol from being sold on Good Friday. Banks and public institutions are closed on this day but it is not an official bank holiday (i.e. public holiday), so many offices and other workplaces remain open. All pubs and many restaurants in Ireland close for the day – it is similar to Christmas Day in this regard. This tradition has come under criticism of late, with secular businesses claiming a loss in earnings by way of a religious festival.
In Germany, comedic theatre performances and events which include public dancing are illegal on the day (although this restriction is enforced unevenly); cinemas and television are not affected, although many TV channels show religious material on the day. The enforcement of these rules even on non-Christians has met with increased opposition in the last decade.
In South Africa, the government regulates the opening of businesses and entertainment outlets on this day. All government offices, schools and certain businesses are closed on Good Friday by law. The buying and selling of alcohol is prohibited.
In India, Good Friday is a Central Government as well as a State holiday, although Stock Markets are usually closed. Some other businesses are also closed in states where Christians are in the majority like Assam, Goa, and Kerala but the majority of businesses are open on Good Friday in rest of the country. Most schools are closed on Good Friday.
