UNIVERSAL CHILDREN'S DAY In 1954, the UN General Assembly suggested that all countries should establish an appropriate day to be designated as Universal Children's Day. This day was to be used to promote the welfare of the chldren of the world. This date, November 20th, marks the day that they adopted this resolution. Spend some time with children today for this November Celebration and enjoy their insights. Play, sing, and dance with them. Celebrate life itself as seen through their eyes. What a wonderful day of rejuvenation!
WORLD TELEVISION DAY The General Assembly of the United Nations in 1996 declared this date World Television Day. Encouragement was given to observe this special day by encourageing global exchanges of programs focusing on issues such as security, peace, social and economic developemnt and also to the enhancement of cultural exchanges. This is a great day to have some friends and neighbors over to watch some intellectual programming rather than the usual sitcoms. While enjoying each others company, you will be able to grow in a new cultural awareness. Perhaps a unique menu of diverse cultural recipes would be engaging here and encourage meaningful dialog. Wow, parties can be intellectually stimulating as well as fun!

NATIONAL CASHEW DAY What would November celebrations be without National Cashew Day? You don't have to be "nuts" to throw a party today but it would definately help. How about entertaining a few folks and providing snacks that revolve around this delicious roasted nut. It's hard to find anyone who doesn't love cashews. Cocktails and bowls of cashews strewn about would make nice nibbling fare. Maybe you can be very creative and rustle up some recipes that incorporate cashews for something a bit hardier. Perhaps a Chinese Cashew Chicken as an entree and a brownie laden with cashews for dessert. Wow, we're getting hungry already. For an interesting bit of "nutty" cocktail trivia: Did you know that cashews are closely related to the Mango and Pistachio plants? Who would have ever guessed?
