December 9th : 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.
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 Anti Corruption Day
A UN awareness day entered into the calendar in 2005 to raise awareness of corruption. This all seems fairly self explanatory and the UN provides some resources here
The UN also provides a secondary teaching guide here
World Techno Day
This probably doesn't need too much explanation. An excuse to celebrate Techno music. The date of December 9th was chosen as Juan Atkins, part of the Belleville Three was born on this date in 1962. The Belleview Three are recognised as the group credited with the invention of Detroit Techno. Mixcloud host a series of Techno mixes especially created for this celebration here.
An article and interview with the Belleview three on how "Techno" was born can be found at Ask Audio magazine here.
