To day I got an invitation from the Care2 to attened to their free broadcast on 21 april in connection with Earth Day. The following link was also communicated to me with a direction to invite my friends. http://go.care2.com/e/R76B/G_yD/WEP Please visit the url and see for you if it is interesting for you. Ok. Now I have certain doubt. Certain days like the women day, mothers day, earth day etc are observed. But who decided these dates? Can any body tell me?

I don't know who created these dates. It's really strange, how would someone know the Earth Date? They had to choose a day, but why did they choose 21 April? Strange, isn't it?

Its all right to give such a dump answer. I like humour. However later I came to know that these days are fixed by the UN. Let us feel relieved, at least the UN has that authority!
