World Recession Day - 17 February

World Recession Day - 17 February

Why not? Just suddenly this thought came to me. Many are affected by recession and joining the un-employment group. Even then, crazy about these artificially created days, we tend to explore the width and breadth of our purse and credit/debit cards - just for the sake of it. An article written by Sri Joy Mathews in his blog, prompted me to create this special day " World Recession Day - 17 th February". Let us participate and share our knowledge to not face another year of Recession.

Thinking about it, do we need these special occasions to remember our mother, father, children and loving wife? It is a daily affair and it should be the case.

So, wish your friend, relative, brother and sister a Happy World Recession Day -  17 February.

We need a special day for everything. Thus, we need a day to remember and warn the realities of things happening around and a siren of the alarming economically tougher days that we walked past and the days coming ahead till the global situation is accustomed and worked over by all. A day to remember our dear friends who lost out in the great battle of recession during the last several month. A day to support and cheer those who are still fighting to survive it and look ahead.

So, let us all mark 17th February as WORLD RECESSION DAY.

The day is chosen as the third thursday in February. Thursday being a universal working day, will be suitable for all to share and spread the importance of due diligence in finance management.

A day to remember:

* the importance of diligent saving

* the importance of efficient spending

* the importance of long term and short term planning

* the importance to educate our children the value of money

* the importance to not get carried away by PLASTIC MONEY

* many more financial principles that we learn on a daily basis.

Here it is, one more day in our life to remember. If you feel this day has to be remembered, include it in your diary, and spread the word around.
