Celebreate Peace Day with Skin Inc. Magazine
Posted: September 19, 2008
The United Nation's 21st International Day of Peace is being celebrated this week in more than 190 countries this year, with event dates varying for different celebrations.
Activities include comedy shows in 55 locations, music concerts, school activities, prayer vigils, Jane Goodall's giant peace dove flying worldwide in more than 60 cities, activities at the UN, and in some cases, the military putting down their weapons for the day.
Some towns orchestrate mile-long candle lightings. Other organizations form together to create human peace doves, which they then document with photos and circulate in newsletters. Some neighborhoods hold fairs, and others put on peace concerts attended by internationally known singers and songwriters.
You can plan your own event by bringing together friends, family, church groups, classes or the entire community to create peace with a peace party, a picnic, a neighborhood block party, a softball game for peace, a yoga for peace class, or by creating your own idea.
