During the last two months of the year, people often fixate their minds on turkey, fattening desserts, material gifts and shopping in crowded malls. As a result, people may want to take some time this holiday season to celebrate a world peace day.
It doesn't need to be an organized or widely recognized even, just a day in which you and your loved ones get together in the name of universal peace and well-being.
This could entail recruiting a group to volunteer at a local soup kitchen or cleaning out the house to find clothing and items to donate to a homeless shelter. If you're lucky enough to have a full table at Thanksgiving and to purchase a large number of gifts for family and friends, you can likely spare time and resources for the less fortunate.
Author and philosopher Ilchi Lee believes that being kind to you fellow man is the kind of action that may someday lead to world peace. As a result, your own little world peace day could spur the formation of world peace organizations and snowball from there.
