United Nations Day
24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by the Member States as a public holiday. There is no other global organization with the legitimacy, convening power and normative impact of the United Nations. Today, the urgency for all countries to come together, to fulfil the promise of the nations united, has rarely been greater. UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.
World Development Information Day
World Development Information Day is celebrated annually on October 24th. The day focuses on improving the dissemination of information and mobilizing public opinion, especially among young people. The primary goal for improving the dissemination of information and mobilizing public opinion is to create awareness for problems of development. Once the world brings its attention to the issues of development, countries around the world are better equipped to solve such problems.
World Tripe Day
You’ll need a strong stomach to get through World Tripe Day. It’s on this day every October 24th that people celebrate a unique food called tripe. When you eat tripe, you’re eating the stomach lining of a cow. In places like Italy, it’s so common that it’s actually served from street-side vendors as a form of on-the-go food, served with a small fork or even on a roll. There are multiple kinds of tripe, even from one animal. World Tripe Day is best celebrated by opening yourself to a new culinary experience if your family isn’t one of those who indulge in tripe as part of their normal diet.
