Today is World Television day. Im reading the post on here and thinking " ya its a holiday" And then Yvonne pointed out who the aurhor of the other post is. I laughed World Television Day is a global observance and not a public holiday altgough I asked on a BbC platform if anyone had ever observed it and 459 replies all said no It started in 1996. Dont think I have ever observed it. But then there are another 364 special event days I do not observe such as Dec 25th. So people of Mylot Would you rather not observe Weeping Angels Or observe World Television Day Just think John Logie Baird and praise Scotland

@jimbo452020 TV is something I no longer indulge in. The contents of an unflushed toilet have more to offer.

@JimBo452020 I really cannot stomach BBC news or anyone else’s - the reporting is so self-righteous.

I didn't observe any TV today, how cruel. Not that I would have if I had knew. I'm beyond evil. Television is going to be a thing of the past, kids are going to observe it at school during History class. Once I have my own kids, I will observe with them.

@JimBo452020 Holographic TV sounds like a little gadget my future heirs would enjoy. I'm 26, I need to be more financially stable for kids but age is alright.

@sabtraversa Will you go down the conventional route? Or will modern child creation methods be employed?

That's just too weird for me. How would you even celebrate World TV Day? I sure hate to think I'd have to watch it all day.

Well Vicki. I assume Scotland is like Mecca ( insha allah) And that John Logie Baird would be the creator. I couldnt do it all day either. Even if it was praising someone Scottish

Not sure what world television day is supposed to be. However, Ever since I cut the cord, I'd say we watch one to two hours of t.v. a day.
