November 21: World Hello Day

It’s World Hello Day! Your objective is to say hello to at least ten people this November 21. Even better, you could follow it up with a handshake or a kind “how are you” — and then really listen to the answer!

The point of this  holiday is to demonstrate the value of communication in promoting peace on both a personal and global level. It’s always easier to resolve conflict when both sides understand and care about the other. A kind greeting is the perfect place to start establishing that understanding relationship.

“If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?”

Matthew 5:46-47
