December 7th : Themes for celebration and contemplation
If you are looking for some themes and points of interest to add to your advent countdown, the Bulldogz Christmas spirit is in full flow and we can provide you with some of the fun, serious and little known points of celebration for each day on this magical countdown.
Play Outside Day
This idea is a monthly event that happens on the first Saturday of every month, obviously, a play outside day in the middle of winter is not something that many people could endorse. It is once again an American idea and it is not something that promotes organised events but to encourage people to get outdoors and play with their kids on a monthly basis. More information on their website here.
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.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
On the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the survivors, veterans and visitors from all over the world come together to honour and remember the 2,403 people who were killed and 1,178 injured in 1941.
The National Park Service website has a series of videos of the commemorative acts from various years here.
The impressive Teachers First resource page has a list of various Pearl Harbor resources available here
