I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Christmas Myths
Santa Claus
Santa Claus is a jolly man with red robes having long white beard. The real name of Santa Claus is Nicholas, born 2000 years ago to wealthy parents in a small village in the country Myra, today called as Turkey. Nicholas' parents died while he was yet a boy. Nicholas went to his village priest, confessed his sins and expressed his desire to help the poor. He wished to become a priest. But the priest knew Nicholas lacked the education necessary to become a priest. During this time Bishop of the church passed away and the authorities were guided by heavenly messenger to select the first person named Nicholas to walk through the doors of church and Nicholas had his miracle and was named the youngest bishop of the church ever on record. St. Nicholas became the champion of children and the needy; he was legendary for his kindness and generosity. And his legend only grew as the centuries passed.
Christmas Tree
There are many myths about the Christmas tree but one of the first written references to a Christmas tree was made in 1605, where a visitor in Germany reported seeing a tree decorated with apples, colorful candies, roses and thin wafers. Over the years many different things were used to decorate Christmas trees., Many trees were decorated with strings of popcorn, greeting cards and pictures, glitters, candy wrapped in color papers, glass balls.
Candy Canes
According to legend, a candy maker represents the holy Christ’s life. Candy has to be hard to represent the church being built on solid rock. Because Jesus is known as the Shepherd, it was formed in the shape of a shepherd's staff and turning it upside down, it represents the letter "J" for Jesus. The three small red stripes represented the Jesus suffering on his way to the cross. The one large red stripe represented the blood Jesus shed as payment for our sins. The white stripes represented the sinless nature of Christ.
Christmas Bell

People gathered to seek the blessings of the newborn Jesus. A little blind boy wanted to meet the baby Jesus but couldn’t find his way; he later heard the tinkling of a cow’s bell. And he followed the tinkling bell to meet the holy Jesus.

Рождественские шутки

Christmas is a time when excitement is in the air and people are in the holiday mood. The festivities start many days prior to Christmas Eve and carry on till the end of the holidays after which people reluctantly get back to their daily work routine. Christmas carols, decorating the Christmas tree, buying gifts, making elaborate dishes are some of the customary things people do. Christmas parties and get-togethers are wonderful occasions to meet old friends, family, friends you haven’t kept in touch with and of course, make new acquaintances. These parties also give the opportunity to polish your social skills and nothing helps you break the ice better than a side-splitting joke. The magic of a joke is the instant rapport you are able to strike up with anyone. If you need a few new ones to spice up your collection, go through some of the selected Christmas jokes given below.
Short Jokes For Christmas
• You do know what would have happened if it had been three wise WOMEN instead of men, don't you? They would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole, and brought disposable diapers as gifts!
• The three stages of life:
1) You believe in Santa Claus
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus
3) You are Santa Claus
• Jack was coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. The preacher grabbed Jack by the hand and pulled him aside. The Pastor said to him, 'You need to join the Army of the Lord!' Jack replied, 'I'm already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.' Pastor questioned, 'How come I don't see you except at Christmas and Easter?' He whispered back, 'I'm in the secret service.'
• After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift. "How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50. "That's a bit much," said Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30. "That’s still quite a bit," Tom groused. Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle. Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap." So the clerk handed him a mirror.
• What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus? Claustrophobic.

Kids have a ball during Christmas with their friends. They get to play lots of games and have fun outside but the winter chill also means that they have to spend time in the warm interiors. This makes Christmas holidays the perfect time to spend some quality time with your little ones whom you otherwise may not have been able to give adequate time to with your everyday work pressures. Of course, you may switch on the TV or put video games for them, but having a quality conversation with your kids bridges the age gap and forms stronger bonds. Cracking a few witty jokes and watching your kids laugh with glee is an incomparable feeling. Also, kids are always eager to share wisecracks amongst their friends and if you give them some stellar ones which help them rise in popularity in their peer group, you will become their hero. So go through these funny Christmas-special jokes for kids and give the Christmas atmosphere a humorous touch.

День рождения Марка Твена

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was born in Florida, Missouri on 30 November 1835. He was the sixth child in the family of Jane Lampton and John Marshall Clemens. In 1839 the Twain family moved to the city of Hannibal, Missouri, a port on the Mississippi River. There he received a public school education. When his father died in 1847 the family was left in financial straits. Eleven year old Samuel left school and obtained his first of many jobs working with various newspapers and magazines. Subsequently he worked as a printer in many other cities. Later Clemens was a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River. In 1861 the writer served briefly as a volunteer soldier in the Confederate cavalry. Later that year he accompanied his brother and tried his hand at silver mining. In 1862 he became a reporter and in 1863 he began signing his articles with the pseudonym Mark Twain. His famous penname Twain adopted from the call ('Mark twain!' – meaning by the mark of two fathoms) used when sounding river shallows. But this isn't the full story: he had also satirized an older writer, Isaiah Sellers, who called himself Mark Twain. In 1870 Twain married Olivia Langdon with whom he had four children.

История песни

«Happy Birthday to You» is a well-known song in the English speaking world and all over the world. It is sung to millions of birthday celebrants from infants to presidents. It has been performed in space and its tune can be heard into music boxes, musical greeting cards, watches and other tuneful products. The origin of the song dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, when two sisters, Patty and Mildred J. Hill, introduced the song "Good Morning to All" to Patty's kindergarten class in Kentucky. In 1893, they published the tune in their songbook Song Stories for the Kindergarten.
"Good Morning to All"
Good morning to you
Good morning to you,
Good morning, dear children,
Good morning to all.
(Lyrics by Patty Smith Hill.)
The Hill Sisters' students enjoyed their teachers' version of "Good Morning To All" so much that they began spontaneously singing it at birthday parties, changing the lyrics to "Happy Birthday".
According to the 1998 Guinness Book of World Records, this song is the most recognized song in the English language. Two kindergarten teachers wrote a song as a useful teacher’s aid, but today it’s a hit that never goes away.

День рождения школы

Yesterday my school celebrated its 40 anniversary. It was decorated with coloured balloons, flowers and photos of former pupils, teachers. We  invited a lot of quests. They came with presents. The most wonderful one, in my opinion, was the picture of a birch in a winter forest made of a horse hair. We heard so many kind words and felt proud of our school.  There was a concert full of songs, dances and video congratulations from the graduators who now live in Germany, the USA, Moscow and St. Petersburg. We were glad to listen to and see the familiar faces of former headmaster and a chief teacher of English who left our town. We saw a film about the first years of the school, remembered people who had worked here. It’s interesting to note that six of our teachers are former pupils. I am among them. After the concert there was a party. We treated the quests with champagne, danced a lot. 40 years are not many, but not few. Our school has its history, traditions and a lot of successful, clever and  good people will remember it as their childhood, their fist friends, love.

День Благодарения

Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving is a preeminent day in the USA, Canada and several other countries. It is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday in the month of November. Thanksgiving Day Festival commemorates the feast held by the Pilgrim colonists in Plymouth in 1621.They crossed the Atlantic Ocean the year before in Mayflower-a 17th century sailing vessel. About 102 people travelled for nearly two months with extreme difficulty. This was so because they were kept in the cargo space of the sailing vessel. No one was allowed to go on the deck due to terrible storms. The pilgrims comforted themselves by singing Psalms (a sacred song). The life in their new country was not easy. But they learnt to grow corn, beans and pumpkins from the Indians, which helped all of them to survive. Today on Thanksgiving Day people express gratitude to God for his blessings and give thanks to dear ones for their love and support. Feasting with family is an integral and most delightful part of Thanksgiving Day celebrations. http://www.thanksgiving-day.org/

Великая балерина

Maya Mikhailovna Plisetskaya is a Russian ballet dancer, considered to be one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th century. She was born in Moscow on November 20 in 1925. Her father worked as an engineer and mine director. In 1938 he was executed, possibly because he had hired a friend who had been a secretary to Leon Trotsky. Her mother Rachel Messerer-Plisetskaya, a silent-film actress, was arrested and sent to a labor camp. Maya was adopted by her aunt, the ballerina Sulamith Messerer, until her mother was released in 1941. Maya studied under the great ballerina of imperial school, Elizaveta Gerdt. She first performed at the Bolshoi Theatre when she was just 11. In 1943, she graduated from the choreographic school and joined the Bolshoi Ballet, where she would perform until 1990. In 1958, she was honoured with the title of the People's Artist of the USSR and married the young composer Rodion Shchedrin. In 1962 she became a prima ballerina. Plisetskaya danced at the same time as the great Galina Ulanova and took from her a lot of skills. Plisetskaya's first work as a choreographer was a ballet based on LevTolstoy's Anna Karenina using music composed by her husband; it was staged in 1972 and filmed in 1974. Maya was known for the height of her jumps, extremely flexible back, the technical strength of dancing and charisma.

Новый мэр Лондона

Two days ago in London there was The Lord Mayor's Show. It is an annual event on the 2nd Saturday in November. There has been a Lord Mayor of London ever since 1189. In 1215 King John allowed people of London to elect their own Mayor every year. He required that the new Mayor present himself to the Sovereign and swear loyalty to the Crown. Each year the newly elected Mayor had to make the long journey upriver from the City to Westminster to pledge allegiance. The Lord Mayor has been making that journey every year for 785 years, surviving plague and fire and countless wars and insurrections. Over the years the Mayor's Journey became so splendid that it became known as the Lord Mayor's Show. On the 13th of November a military flypast over Mansion House marked the beginning of the parade to celebrate the inaugural outing of the 683rd Lord Mayor of the City of London. The procession travelled to St Paul's Cathedral, where the new Lord Mayor was blessed by the Dean of St Paul's before the procession carried on to the Royal Courts of Justice where the Lord Mayor swore an oath of allegiance to the sovereign. The Lord Mayor's Show comprised above 6,000 people, over 140 ornamentally decorated floats and performers in addition to the significant and ornately gilded State Coach which the Lord Mayor himself travelled in. The day culminated in a fireworks between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridges on the Thames. The name of the mayor is Michael Bear.

Всемирный день доброты

Random Acts of Kindness Day is the name of an unofficial holiday increasingly celebrated around the world by localities or organizations, or nationwide, in order to encourage acts of kindness. The original founder of Random Acts of Kindness Day is unknown. The holiday is celebrated annually in the United States on February 17 and in New Zealand on September 1. It is not a holiday, rather a national day where the entire country is challenged to do something kind to a friend or stranger for no reason at all.
Kindness is the act or the state of being kind — marked by goodness and charitable behaviour, mild disposition, pleasantness, tenderness and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions. According to book two of Aristotle's "Rhetoric", it is one of the emotions, which is defined as being "helpfulness towards some one in need, not in return for anything, nor for the advantage of the helper himself, but for that of the person helped". Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche argued that kindness and love are the "most curative herbs and agents in human intercourse". Kindness is considered to be one of the Knightly Virtues.
virtue – добродетель
curative herbs – целебные травы
intercourse – общение
knightly – благородный, рыцарский
from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Watch this wonderful cartoon! I like it a lot. It’s sad, but very, very kind!

История смайлика

Смайликами (от smile — улыбка) в Интернете называют значки, составленные из знаков препинания, букв и цифр, обозначающие какие-то эмоции. У смайлика есть автор.
Harvey Ross Ball (10 July 1921 – 12 April 2001) was an American commercial artist. He is recognized as the earliest known designer of the Smiley, which became an enduring and notable international icon. Ball was born and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts. During his time as a student at South High School, he became an apprentice to local sign painter, and later attended Worcester Art Museum School, where he studied fine arts. His design of the Smiley came about in 1963. The State Mutual Life Assurance Company of Worcester, Massachusetts (now known as Hanover Insurance) purchased Guarantee Mutual Company of Ohio. The merger resulted in low employee morale. In an attempt to solve this, Harvey Ball was employed in 1963 as a freelance artist to create a smiley face to be used on buttons, desk cards, and posters. In less than ten minutes the smiley face was complete. The use of the smiley face was a part of the company's friendship campaign whereby State Mutual handed out 100 smiley pins to employees. The aim was to get employees to smile while using the phone and doing other tasks. The buttons were highly popular, with orders in lots of 10,000.

Правила этикета для электронной почты

Сетевой этикет - понятие, возникшее с появлением электронной почты (Email – electronic mail) и электронных досок объявлений (ВВS - Bulletin Board System). Интернет развивается, расширяются его сервисы. На смену первым BBS пришли форумы и телеконференции. В дополнение к электронной почте появились и стали популярными чаты, обеспечивающие возможность беседовать в реальном времени в режиме on-line, людям, удаленным друг от друга на тысячи километров; Интернет-пейджеры (ICQ, NetMeeting и др.), которые позволяют общаться избирательно, видеть друг друга. Интернет стал доступен, и все больше людей знакомятся с ним. Для того, чтобы, общаясь в Интернете с использованием различных его сервисов, не доставлять неприятностей собеседникам и не иметь их самому, полезно следовать некоторым несложным правилам. Правила сетевого этикета просты и похожи на правила поведения в реальной жизни.
Правила этикета для электронной почты Email
1. Всегда заполняйте поле subject ("тема") своего письма. Ориентируясь по темам, проще выделить нужные письма в большом списке поступающей корреспонденции. Отфильтровывайте спам (spam) – навязчивую рекламу.
2. Отвечая на пришедшее письмо, принято цитировать некоторые его отрывки. Цитируемые фразы нужно выделять каким-нибудь символом, обычно это ">", и отделять их от ваших фраз пустой строкой. Большинство программ для работы с электронной почтой при написании ответа сами выделяют текст исходного письма подобными знаками, и пользователю достаточно лишь удалить ненужные фразы.

Сетевой этикет

Netiquette — правила поведения в Интернете. Это понятие появилось в середине 80-х годов XX века в эхоконференциях сети FIDO.
Чаще всего под явным нарушением этикета понимают оскорбления и переход на личности, рекламу и саморекламу, клевету, обман и плагиат.
Люди, привыкшие к правилам одного сетевого сообщества, могут невольно нарушить правила другого. Поэтому практически во всех интернет-сообществах требуется ознакомиться с правилами и выразить своё формальное согласие на их соблюдение. Также есть общие правила, соблюдение которых является хорошим тоном в большинстве дискуссий:
• Перед тем, как становиться активным участником сетевого сообщества, желательно в течение определенного времени посещать его, оставляя минимум собственных комментариев, чтобы привыкнуть к правилам сообщества, а также узнать о некоторых его традициях.
• Прежде чем задать вопрос, не поленитесь воспользоваться поиском — быть может этот вопрос уже задавали, быть может уже на него дан ответ.
• Старайтесь делать свои записи удобочитаемыми.
• Во многих сообществах не поощряется написание сообщений, имеющих единственную цель привлечения внимания к вашей персоне.
Интернет развивается, появляется всё больше пользователей. Люди допускают ошибки из-за незнания сетевого этикета. Для избежания ошибок в Сети следует знать некоторые понятия сетевого этикета.
Flame — «пламя» — это процесс, который иногда возникает при общении в интернете, «словесная война». Это неожиданно возникшее бурное обсуждение, в процессе которого участники обычно забывают о первоначальной теме, переходят на личности и не могут остановиться. Обычно флеймы возникают спонтанно, развиваются очень быстро и заканчиваются лишь при вмешательстве модератора или когда все участники окончательно устанут. Это тот самый вид спора, в котором истина не рождается — по окончании флейма все спорщики чувствуют себя неудобно и никакого конструктивного результата флейм не дает.
Если случилось так, что вы стали невольным участником флейма, наиболее разумное поведение в этой ситуации — один раз максимально четко, конструктивно и доброжелательно выразить свою позицию, и больше в дискуссию не вступать. Тогда она, скорее всего, затухнет сама. Если же вы будете пытаться что-то доказать — флейм будет становиться только жарче и ваше положение и имидж будут лишь ухудшаться.

Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31, primarily in the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration. Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories or other frightening tales, and watching horror films. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween

Полеты на воздушном шаре

The manned balloon flight
The first tethered balloon flight with humans on board took place 15 October 1783. Jean Francois Pilatre de Rozier and Francois Laurent, Marquis d'Arlandes, were the first people to fly when they ascended in a Montgolfier hot-air balloon in Paris, France. The first free flight with human passengers took place on November 21, 1783. Hot air balloon festivals are held annually in many places throughout the year, allowing hot air balloons to gather and participate in various activities. They can include races; evening "night glows", in which balloons are fired while remaining tetheted to the ground; and rides. from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Публичное выступление

How to speak effectively in public
1. We should look our best.
Although people aren’t supposed to ‘judge the book by its cover’, some people unconsciously tend to do that. If we don’t look credible enough, they may not even start listening to what we have to say. I’m not saying we ought to wear gowns or tuxedos, but simply wear clothes fit for the occasion. Our clothes should be neat and free of wrinkles (unless it’s the clothes’ style), not too loud that people would rather stare at it than us. We should be pleasant-looking, and I’m not only referring to our clothes but our faces and gestures as well.
2. We should know how to stress our point.
A speech, like a song has a variety of notes, tempo and loudness. A singer who just screeches all the way from the beginning to the end will not be listened to, no matter how talentedly-highpitched she is. Same with delivering a speech. We ought to know when to stay silent, when to pause, when to speak loudly, when to whisper, when to speak fast, when to slow down, etc. or else we would sound monotonous and the main points of our speech would not be understood or remembered well.
3. We should be humble.
We should admit it when we make mistakes during our speech and to apologize for that mistake. There are times we may forget a certain term. Instead of pausing for a long time or using a word we’re not sure of, it’s better to ask our listeners. Do not be ashamed to do this. Listeners would appreciate your humility and even relate to you more because they know you are just like them, a human capable of making mistakes and forgetting things, a great or famous person, yet, still human, like them, and this makes the listeners love you more.

Мой праздник

День учителя — профессиональный праздник. Был учрежден указом Президиума Верховного Совета СССР от 29 сентября 1965 года. Отмечался в первое воскресенье октября. По указу № 1961 Президента РФ от 3 октября 1994 года День учителя стал отмечаться 5 октября во Всемирныый день учителей. Это один из самых любимых праздников в школах. В этот день учителя принимают поздравления от своих учеников, которые дарят им цветы и подарки, устраивают концерты, рисуют красочные стенгазеты и, по традиции, проводят День самоуправления.

This holiday I celebrated in the capital of our republic, the city of Yakutsk. I was a delegate of the XII congress of the teachers of Yakutia. The programme of the event was rich in meetings, discussions, conserts, lessons. I was very glad to get acquainted with my colleaques and share their skills in teaching. One day of the congress was dedicated to teachers' lessons. There were 26 of them who had a chance to show their methods of teaching. It was interesting and useful to attend the lessons of real masters. And, also, a great happiness for me was to know that my work had been appreciated and I was chosen to be one of the best teachers of Russia. Thanks a lot to everybody who helped me in my progress.

Цвета в нашей жизни

Colours in our life
Colors often have different meanings in various cultures. And even in Western societies, the meanings of various colors have changed over the years. But today in the U.S., researchers have generally found the following to be accurate.
Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil. Villains, such as, Dracula often wear black.
Brides wear white to symbolize innocence and purity. White reflects light and is considered a summer color. White is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is light, neutral, and goes with everything. However, white shows dirt and is therefore more difficult to keep clean than other colors. Doctors and nurses wear white to imply sterility.
The most emotionally intense color, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. It is also the color of love. Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier. Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves. In decorating, red is usually used as an accent. Decorators say that red furniture should be perfect since it will attract attention.
The most romantic color, pink, is more tranquilizing. Sports teams sometimes paint the locker rooms used by opposing teams bright pink so their opponents will lose energy.
The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is one of the most popular colors. It causes the opposite reaction as red. Peaceful, tranquil blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms. Blue can also be cold and depressing. Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms.
Currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. However, seamstresses often refuse to use green thread on the eve of a fashion show for fear it will bring bad luck.
Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism.
The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. It is also feminine and romantic. However, because it is rare in nature, purple can appear artificial.
Solid, reliable brown is the color of earth and is abundant in nature. Light brown implies genuineness while dark brown is similar to wood or leather. Brown can also be sad and wistful. Men are more apt to say brown is one of their favorite colors.
Colors of the Flag
In the US flag, white stands for purity and innocence. Red represents valor and hardiness, while blue signifies justice, perseverance, and vigilance. The stars represent the heavens and all the good that people strive for, while the stripes emulate the sun's rays.
Food for Thought
While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing. Blue food is rare in nature. Food researchers say that when humans searched for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black, or purple. When food dyed blue is served to study subjects, they lose appetite.
Green, brown, and red are the most popular food colors. Red is often used in restaurant decorating schemes because it is an appetite stimulant

День русского языка

UN Russian Language Day, 6 June, 2010
«Как материал словесности, язык славяно-русский имеет неоспоримое превосходство пред всеми европейскими: судьба его была чрезвычайно счастлива. В XI веке древний греческий язык вдруг открыл ему свой лексикон, сокровищницу гармонии, даровал ему законы обдуманной своей грамматики, свои прекрасные обороты, величественное течение речи; словом, усыновил его, избавя, таким образом, от медленных усовершенствований времени. Сам по себе уже звучный и выразительный, отселе заемлет он гибкость и правильность. Простонародное наречие необходимо должно было отделиться от книжного; но впоследствии они сблизились, и такова стихия, данная нам для сообщения наших мыслей». http://www.un.org/ru/events/russianlanguageday/  
The United Nations marks the birthday of Aleksandr Pushkin, recognized as the father of Russian literature, by celebrating Russian Language Day, 6 June, 2010. On the occasion of International Mother Language Day on 21 February, initiated by UNESCO, the Department of Public Information launched of “Language Days at the United Nations”, to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity. United Nations duty stations around the world celebrate six “Language Days” dedicated to the six United Nations official languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. Language Days at the United Nations strive to entertain as well as inform, by raising awareness of the history, culture and achievements of each of the six official languages among the United Nations community. The dates for the Language Days were selected for their symbolic or historic significance in connection with each language:
• 8 December, Arabic Language Day, the date on which the United Nations General Assembly designated Arabic as the sixth official language of the United Nations in 1973;
• 23 April, English Language Day, on William Shakespeare’s birthday;
