United Nations Day at SM Clark, Angeles City
United Nations Day has traditionally been marked throughout the world with meetings, discussions and exhibits about the achievements and goals of the organization. In 1971, the General Assembly recommended that member states observe it as a public holiday.
Several international schools throughout the world also celebrate the diversity of their student body on United Nations Day (although the event is not necessarily celebrated on 24 October). Celebrations often include a show of cultural performances in the evening and a food fair, where food is available from all over the world.
In the United States, the President has issued a proclamation each year for United Nations Day since 1946.
Last October 24th in the afternoon, I went to stroll in SM Clark. And I was lucky to chanced upon a parade of students in colorful attire and national custome. These were the elementary and high school students of Private Schools in Angeles City where their is a big group of expatriate families and Filipinas married to foreigners. They got beautiful childrens who participated in the parade commemorating the United Nations Day.
