And no, I'm not talking about Thanksgiving......

Apparently, Wednesday was World Television Day.

Here's the scoop from Wikipedia:

"The UN General Assembly established November 21 as World Television Day to encourage nations to exchange cultural programming focusing on peace, security, economic and social development.The announcement was made in resolution 51/205 at the 99th plenary meeting of the Assembly, on December 17, 1996. The day November 21 was chosen because the first World Television Forum was held on that day in 1996, where media figures organized to discuss the increased significance of television in the world.No other public records besides resolution 51/205 have documented observances of World Television Day."

I must have missed the memo.

Well, hopefully we here at Toobworld Central will remember to celebrate World Television Day next year on November 21st.

If we're not bemoaning the Presidential election a few weeks earlier....
