Daily Holidays - December 31

National Champagne Day If that bubbly is from Italy, California or even the South of France, it isn't technically Champagne. The real deal comes only from France's Champagne region.

Make Up Your Mind Day What is this holiday about?
It's about making up your mind and sticking to it. It's time to stop being indecisive and make up your mind. No more putting off your decision, todays the day to finalize your thoughts and take a stand! Just remember- making up your mind makes life easier. http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/make_up_your_mind_day.html
New Years Eve

No Interruptions Day The bad news: The average office worker is interrupted — by coworkers, emails, or phone calls — every 11 minutes. Even worse is that it takes basically that much time to refocus on the task at hand. On this last business day for 2010, turn off your phone and tell that chatty coworker to buzz off. If he doesn't listen? Sneak around, says Gina Trapani, a FastCompany.com Work Smart blogger and project director at Expert Labs. "At a software job years ago, people constantly stopped by to ask questions, and it was impossible to work," she says. "I started booking a conference room for an hour or two. I worked in total peace while the rest of my office mates thought I was in another meeting." Deceptive, yet effective. — Stephanie Schomer http://www.fastcompany.com/1706458/no-interruptions-day

Universal Hour of Peace Day This is how it began -- an idea, an ideal, a vision, and a practice that had the power to uplift the consciousness of every individual on Earth who chose to participate. And the ideal was that every sentient being on Earth would participate by dedicating one hour a year to peace. This would be the same hour all around the world and there would be an incredible unity of consciousness.

The vision of the Universal Hour of Peace to unite all people of the Earth toward a common pursuit of peace of mind was motivating and inspiring. Immediately individuals began to imagine how this simple act of an hour of peaceful thought and action could change their world and how that would increase in power with thousands of others of like mind participating as well. The potential was immense.
At the hour of 4 am in Los Angeles, noon in London, 5 pm in New Delhi, or 9 pm in Tokyo millions of people would be creating a common consciousness and action of something as holy as peace. What a transformative experience for an individual’s growth in consciousness and in building a true connection with others. And the benefits to humanity as a whole would then follow from the individual’s elevated thinking. This could be the shift needed to bring about a world free from war, a world in which people respected and valued others for their special understandings, a world in which aiding others became the common theme rather than fighting crime. These, and many more benefits are results of a peaceful heart and mind. http://www.peacedome.org/UniversalPeaceCovenant/UniversalHourPeace/UHPStory.html

World Peace Meditation Day. People all around the world gather at noon greenwich mean time to join in meditation for peace on the planet. This is a powerful experience of being able to connect in consciousness with others around the world to bring healing and peace to the planet. The meditation starts at 4am for us on the west coast.It is early but it is well worth getting out of bed. http://www.castanet.net/events/world_peace_meditation_-_world_healing_day_dec_31/79019
