This is another retail consumerism term, recognising that the best sales in December usually falls on the second Monday of December. This could be useful to know if you wish to avoid the most chaotic shopping day in the diary!
International Civil Aviation Day
Established in 1994 as part of the 50th anniversary activities of the International Civil Aviation Organisation which is often known as the "Chicago Convention". It was this agreement which enabled the peaceful development of global civil aviation. The celebration was then endorsed in the UN calendar in 1996.
