World Hello Day was created by a PhD graduate of Arizona State University Brian McCormack and a graduate of Harvard University Michael McCormack. They decided to create a holiday, that would promote peace among people and strengthen their social relations. This idea came up to them in response to the military conflict between Israel and Egypt, known as the Yom Kippur War. The holiday was created in 1973 and the first celebration took place the same year.
There is a special activity on World Hello Day: everyone, who participates the celebration, should greet at least ten people. This will join everyone in a global expression of peace and draw attention of the governments that use of communication is better than the force to settle conflicts. And how many people have you already greeted?Remind me with Google Calendar
