World Party Day April 3, 2017

DIANE'S CORNER ... Celebrate World Party Day
Image result for World Party Day GIF
World Party Day is based on the idea that peace is not the opposite of war, merely its absence. The real opposite of war is party, and World Party Day aims to synchronize a massive, world-wide party to celebrate everything that’s good and optimistic.
Vanna Bonta almost certainly had no idea when she wrote Flight: A Quantum Fiction Novel that the idea in the book of a global human celebration would really take off. It has though, and people celebrate in all sorts of ways.
“Pass the food and turn up the music” is a common slogan on World Party Day, but it doesn’t really matter how you celebrate, or even whether you celebrate alone or in company. The premise is that everyone in the world is joined in party, so you can really do anything you like as long as it involves celebrating the joy of existence.

Image result for Oscar Wilde's Libel Case Begins (1895)
When the marquess of Queensbury became convinced that his son, Alfred Douglas, was having an affair with Wilde, he began to rail against the author and playwright, publicly accusing Wilde of sodomy, a crime at the time. At Douglas's urging, Wilde sued the marquess for libel. He not only lost the case, but was in turn charged with homosexual offenses and arrested. Wilde was convicted in an internationally notorious trial and served two years hard labor.

If You Were Born Today, April 3
Sociable, likable, and adventurous, you are an inspiration to others. You are versatile and multi-talented, but often restless, so it can be difficult to choose one life path and stick to it. You enjoy being the center of attention, and you can be very playful, witty, endearing, and imaginative, and often a great story teller. You are always hungry for new experiences, which can be the reason that your life is quite eventful and interesting. Famous people born today: Marlon Brando, Wayne Newton, Doris Day, Alec Baldwin, Eddie Murphy.
