World Party Day
April 3, 2014 in the World
World Party Day is celebrated on April 03, 2014. 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.
The first World Party Day (known as World Party I) took place on April 3, 1996. The novel Flight by Vanna Bonta inspired the event. The story ends with a countdown to a mass celebration where all of humanity is united. Readers took the idea and organized a real worldwide party!

Find a Rainbow Day
April 3, 2014 in the World
Find a Rainbow Day is celebrated on April 03, 2014. 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.
In a “primary rainbow”, the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side. This rainbow is caused by light being refracted while entering a droplet of water, then reflected inside on the back of the droplet and refracted again when leaving it. The rainbow is not located at a specific distance, but comes from any water droplets viewed from a certain angle relative to the Sun’s rays. Thus, a rainbow is not an object, and cannot be physically approached.
