Happy United Nations Day

Today, October 24, is United Nations Day. For real! Here is how Wicki describes this most illustrious day:

United Nations Day has traditionally been marked throughout the world by meetings, discussions and exhibits on the achievements and goals of the Organization.

That’ll take all of three minutes.

In 1971, the General Assembly recommended that Member States observe it as a public holiday.

A day for people to do nothing and celebrate an organization that does even less.

Several international schools throughout the world also celebrate the diversity of their student body on United Nations Day.

Well grab me a party hat and call me Mu’ebuka, Ima gonna celebrate me some diversity!

I wonder how the folks in Darfur celebrated UN day?
