Happy World Party Day!

Did you know that April 3rd is World Party Day? Well, according to Wikipedia:

History

World Party Day began as a grassroots effort in 1996 and was one of the first global efforts in a growing number of movements of synchronized human celebration to bring about improved social conditions. World Party Day (also P-Day) is observed yearly on (April 3) through personal and public observances of party-like atmosphere. A basic premises is that the opposite of war is not passive action or peace, but party.

Origin

The idea of a worldwide party appeared as a work of fiction in Flight, A Quantum Fiction Novel, by American writer. The trilogy’s first book, published in 1995, ended with a countdown that was to take place on April 3, 2000, postulating that on that day the entire world would celebrate synchronously in elevated social awareness.

Fiction to reality

The idea was a basic premise of the new genre coined by the Flight novel, i.e., quantum fiction posits that human awareness participates in the creation of reality. The ending of the book, a fictional synchronized moment of global human allegiance and celebration to take place on an April 3, inspired some readers to begin organizing it as a real event, the World Party. Since 1996, the World Party Day gained in popularity, propagating via unprecedented global communication channels of the internet toward an anticipated April 3 P-Day, when the first World Party I (an opposite of World War I) will make history in which the entire world synchronizes in. if only a moment, of mass celebration and co-operative awareness. 

Celebratory practices

Observance of World Party Day recognizes peace and joyful expression as fundamental human rights, and celebration (party) as the opposite of war.

World Party Day is a synchronous internet and worldwide celebration. The focus of the event is on the enjoyment and respect of life and being alive. A variety of events include synchronized music broadcasts, synchronized singing, or quiet celebrations alone or with family and friends, hence the World Party Day motto “Rock it or Bliss it.”

Through a variety of celebrations, the common focus is universal humanity, multicultural understanding, peace, well-being and joy as fundamental human rights, and recognition of the creative power of the individual to bring about reality in collective harmony with the entire human race. Classroom events share appreciation of different cultures by show-and-tell of food, music and art, and life as a productive, social activity.

So go ahead, grab your party hat and noise maker. Join the world-wide party and help create a little bit of harmony, respect and enjoyment in your little piece of this world. Enjoy the day that is today!

About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
