Many of us will eventually leave homes and become more independent as we grow up, so we barely get any opportunities to come back and visit the elderly.
September 19 is the National Respect for the Aged Day.
This holiday is a Japanese festival started in a small town called Nomatanimura (now named Yachiyocho) after World War II. The mayor of this town proposed that young people should listen to the seniors’ advice, so September 15 developed into Old Folks Day.
A couple years later, this local celebration achieved great success within the nation, and thus evolved into a national ceremony.
In 1998, Japan announced a Happy Monday System, which used to move all the public holidays to Mondays, in order to let people enjoy a three-day weekend.
Starting this year, this commemoration is moved to the third Monday of September.
The older generation has provided a lot of meaningful guidance to the young people, and they also have made outstanding contributions to society with their wealth of knowledge.
Spend some time gathering with the elderly today. If you are away from home, then pick up your phone and say hello to them.
Children always have infinite possibilities to accomplish big things throughout their entire lives.
September 20, the National Care for Kids Day, is a perfect timing for us to improve the childhood of each kid by focusing more on their education, health and the growing environments.
In 2021, the Designetics Cares Foundation established this important day, which provides a platform to bring children’s voices to a table. It is also an encouragement to the community members that we need to build up a safe and healthy home for each kid.
There are some great ways to show your love, such as making a donation to the children’s charity, helping the kids who are experiencing mental disorders like autism and depression.
If you have your own children, do not forget to take care of them even if you are too busy at work.
Alzheimer’s is a type of disease that destroys a person’s memory and other mental functions. Unfortunately, it currently has no cure for this condition.
As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are about 5.8 million people in the United States who have Alzheimer’s, which include 5.6 million aged 65 and above.
This dementia was first discovered by a German psychiatrist, Alois Alzhemier, while treating a patient in 1901. After all, this disease was named after him.
The first World Alzheimer Report was released on September 21, 2009, the World Alzheimer’s Day.
The purpose of this significant day is to draw attention to Alzheimer’s and find new possible treatments to fight against this disorder.
Most importantly, Alzheimer’s is not a gradual process of aging. It is a serious mental illness that a lot of people suffer from.
From victims to caretakers, we need to work together to make our voices heard by more people about this disease.
A large number of people have natural hair colors, such as black, brown and blonde. However, four percent of the world’s population has unique red hair.
September 23 is the Redhead Appreciation Day, reminding us to accept and understand the differences between each other while making red haired people feel good.
The color of red is remarkably outstanding.
Whether you have red hair or not, when you see redhead people around you, do not judge them. Instead, use your compliments to tell them how beautiful they are.
