World Hello Day is a unique celebration that takes place on 21st November annually. People greet each other warmly and solve any conflicts amongst themselves by converting them into peace and love.
When is World Hello Day 2021?
November 21st every year is observed as ‘World Hello Day. The year 2021 marks the 49th year of celebrations and will undoubtedly hit the turf with lots of surprises and fanfare. The day is a reminder to hold effective communications with our near and dear ones and not hold back dialogues between people that can curb a healthy living practice. ‘Hello’ is a redefining term for bridging gaps in relations, forming new friends, healing bitterness between warring countries and more.
History of World Hello Day
It dates back to 1973 when Egypt and Israel were at loggerheads, and people suspected a possible war outcome from the growing tension. Amid all these events, Brian McCormack and Michael McCormack created a new conceptual idea. As an outcome, Israeli leaders and Arab supremacy met at a peace meeting for the first time and resolved things amicably. Towards the end of October 1973, the world saw the Yom Kippur War, which took away the innocent lives of so many citizens, both from the military and civilian communities. This acted as a precursor to the formation of a Global Hello Day.
Brian McCormack holds a prestigious PhD degree from the State University of Arizona and Michael McCormack from Harvard. Since its inception, more than 180 countries worldwide have agreed to celebrate World Hello Day in their respective countries. Nobel peace prize recipients have stressed World Hello Day’s influence on nations out in the open against each other and willing to go for war. It openly influences voluntary organisations, civilians and governments to resolve burning issues between countries gently and kindly and throw violence out of context from our lives.
World Hello Day 2021 Theme
There is no specific theme observed for World Hello Day 2021. Some of the day’s highlights include “communication through love and an open mind” rather than “communication through forcible conversations”. An idealistic population should supposedly consist of people having healthy talks and discussions amongst themselves, putting aside the passage of ego, hurt and enmity amongst one another. But above all of this is the conducive power of speech and communication which bonds people and interconnects relationships.
World Hello Day 2021 Significance
Communication is an essential aspect of human life. If there is no communication or interaction between individuals, then there is no human relationship aspect anywhere. We ought to strike a dialogue between ourselves, curb our egos, and achieve a good learning and understanding platform amongst fellows. The best thing to begin a healthy relationship with someone is to say a “Hello”. In today’s world, people do not have time to spare for their near and dear ones.
Most of the time is spent on productive and functional work and significantly less family time. This leads to discord between family members. When the inner circle starts distancing from an individual, he slowly begins to isolate himself from society. Gradually, relationships begin to suffer in both personal and social circles. This is where the ego sets in, and people start speaking to another individual only when it is indispensable.
This kind of disparity should be destroyed from within. One of the major factors that hold us back from talking to another person is our ego. It holds us back, pulls our mind from marching forward to strike a conversation. A dialogue between two people is possible in these circumstances – when both of them have an open mind when there is the necessity of speech due to legal reasons, when one person has a genuine liking for another person when one person intends to strike a healthy conversation with another.
World Hello Day 2021 Activities & Celebrations
The best way to celebrate World Hello Day is to greet at least ten people around us with a warm smile and say “Hello” to them. Asking them how they are doing in life and a pinch of reassurance works wonders for everyone. We should talk to people with enthusiasm. The richness of love in our hearts shouldn’t be restricted to our families and friends alone.
An excellent way of celebrating this day is to spread the word about the importance of “World Hello Day”. Positive forms of talking with strangers, exhibiting positivity in place of negative emotions bounce back happiness from the other side. Let us also spend the day making new and good friends.
We could send a mail to office colleagues to greet them on the day. We could display our act of gratitude with close friends and family by bringing them flowers they love. Brightly and radiantly, our words and speech should exhume peace and inspire people around us to feel the greatness of joy and happy living.
Dispute or conflict resolution is another facet of the whole idea of celebrating this day. If we can solve our communication issues by putting an end to ego-stands, the world could be a better place to live in.
