HELLO appreciative students,
Today is is the 44th annual World Hello Day! World Hello Day began in response to a conflict between two nations in 1973. Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries. It is a day where we celebrate the power of using effective and peaceful communication to solve conflicts instead of force. Anyone can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting ten people. We do this to demonstrate the importance of communication. Here are just a few other ways to say hello:
Konichiwa (koh-Nee-chee-wah) is hello in Japanese.
Jambo (JAM-bo) is hello in Swahili.
Hola (OH-la) is hello in Spanish.
Ni hao (nee-Ha-OW) is hello in Chinese.
Bonjour (bohn-Zhoor) is hello in French.
Buon giorno (bwohn-JOR-noh) is hello in Italian.
Annyong ha shimnikka (An-YOH HASHim-ni-kah) is hello in Korean.
Czesc (Chesht) is hello is Polish.
Zdravstvuite (ZzDRAST-vet-yah) is hello in Russian.
Al Salaam a’ alaykum (ahl sah-LAHM-ah-ah-LAY-Koom)) is hello in Arabic.
Think about how you will say hello today to promote peace!
