Hello?你好? Bonjour? Hallo? こんにちは? 안녕하세요? Здравствуйте

Every year, November 21 is World Hello Day. The objective is to say hello to ten people on the day. By greeting others, the message is for world leaders to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.

The event began in 1973 by Brian and Michael McCormack in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel.Since then World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.It has garnered accolades from notable individuals around the globe including politicians, religious leaders, and celebrities.

Actually didn’t know today is a big day until I heard that from the radio. It brought me into deep thinking. It looks like Greeting is so common and easy for us. But is it as easy as we think of it?

The fact is not so easy. Neither giving greeting nor receiving it from others. It’s so complex that nowaday people can’t trust each other so easily even just say hello to a stranger. A statistics tells such a unbelievable comparison. When we say hello to the people walk by in the street. There is merely only one among 30 will says thanks and gives you greeting too. We can know that how un-trusted people feel between each other.

So World Hello Day is giving us a chance to say hello to others, a chance to recreate the trust of our society. Just spread this message to all of your friends and say Hello to them sincerely.

    Could we make the “World Hello Day” as a custom for everyday, but not only one day in a year? People nowadays are too cold and self-protective, hope the “day” will be a start to arouse their soul and melt their heart…..
