On July 21, World Dog Day has been celebrated since 2004. It is not an official celebration or holiday, but various civil associations, including the WHO, World Health Organization, have scheduled this date in order to raise awareness about the immense number of dogs that are abandoned or waiting to be adopted. It is claimed, according to world statistics, that up to 70% of the dog population is homeless.
Since June 23, 2011, the General Assembly of the United Nations has declared a day to make visible and draw the attention of the world population to the vulnerability suffered by women who have lost their husbands, the so-called widows.
Veterans Day is one of the most special celebrations in the United States. Every November 11, those people who are still alive and who gave their service in the various wars in the world where the US Army was present are honored. It is a different celebration of Memorial Day, which occurs on the last Monday in May and remembers those who sadly died in combat for the defense of their country.
