Daily Holidays - March 3

National Cold Cuts Day Cold Cuts Day is the day upon which anything and everything related to cold cut meats are celebrated. Noboday really knows where the celebration of such an essential part of the human diet (and fridge essential stocks!) came from, but frankly, it’s as good an excuse as any to get down with the Joey from Friends philosophy on life and yell, “nobody touches my food”! Folks, prepare your pants, it’s time to eat!

Cold cuts come in many shapes and forms whether it’s leftover ham, turkey or chicken, deli sliced pastrami, salami, chorizo, sausage or corned beef. The key to truly celebrating National Cold Cuts Day in style is lashings and lashings of cold cuts, freshly baked bread, salad and a creative flurry in the kitchen. Whack any cold cut you can find on the bread, top it with salad and a drizzle of oil, and tuck in!


I Want You To Be Happy Day Celebrated annually on March 3rd, it is National I Want You To Be Happy Day. This day was created as a day that encourages us to do something to make others happy.

Share a smile, share a laugh, pay a compliment, buy someone’s coffee, send some flowers, take someone to lunch, make cookies for a neighbor, play games with the kids, take the family to the park, visit a friend or maybe make a phone call. These are just a few of the many things that can be done to brighten up the day for someone. It can actually be as simple as just telling someone that you want them to be happy.

Have a good day and, We want you to be happy!

International Ear Care Day International Ear Care Day is an annual advocacy event held on 3 March. Designated at the First International Conference on Prevention and Rehabilitation of Hearing Impairment in Beijing, China in 2007, the Day aims to raise awareness and promote ear and hearing care across the world.

Each year, this Day addresses a specific theme and activities are carried out by WHO and its partners. In 2014, the theme was “Ear Care Can Avoid Hearing Loss”. This theme targeted all age groups and promoted hearing health through ear care. In conjunction with the Day, WHO released the report Multi-country assessment of national capacity to provide hearing care. Partners and countries across all regions hosted activities and events to mark the Day, including Bahrain, Bangladesh, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guatemala, Guinea, Indonesia, Kenya, Kuwait, Lesotho, Madagascar, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Peru, Qatar, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia. In 2013 the theme was “Health Hearing, Happy Life – Hearing Health Care for Ageing People”. The Day was marked by the release of global data on the number of people with hearing loss.

In 2015, the theme for International Ear Care Day is ‘Make Listening Safe’. This theme will draw attention to the rising problem of noise-induced hearing loss. It raises the alarm that millions of teenagers and young people are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices, including smartphones, and exposure to damaging levels of sound at noisy entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events. It highlights that such recreational hearing loss has potentially devastating consequences for physical and mental health, education and employment. The following activities have been organized for the International Ear Care Day at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland: http://www.who.int/pbd/deafness/news/IECD/en/

World Wildlife Day The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 3 March – the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) – as World Wildlife Day. On this second observance of the Day, the UN system, its Member States and a wide range of partners from around the world are highlighting the simple yet firm message that “It’s time to get serious about wildlife crime”.
