DROITWICH FRIDAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

November 21, 2014 is the 42nd annual World Hello Day.  Anyone can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting ten people.  This demonstrates the importance of personal communication for preserving peace.

    World Hello Day was begun in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the Fall of 1973.  Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.

    People around the world use the occasion of World Hello Day as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace.  Beginning with a simple greeting on World Hello Day, their activities send a message to leaders, encouraging them to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts

Hello Chris.

A greeting hug is out of the question if we must carry those accursed umbrellas...
Chris: Impossible Ray, otherwise we'd get soaked..

A very precarious piece of square Gutteridge Tiff. I see that world. hello day comes right on the heals of world toilet day.
Chris: Yes it does Chad. After you have utilised the Lavatorial facilities just say hello to someone - in that way you kill two flying animals with one projectile
Well, Hello Chris!!! What a wonderful thing! In Flagstaff we say Hello, Hi, How ya doin'... to just about everyone we pass... combine that with having about 25 patients on the books Friday- I think I'll proudly surpass that goal!

I like your shot of these colorful umbrellas and parkas on what might be considered an otherwise gray day!
Chris: Grey here too Elizabeth, typical November weather - ask Frank!
Hello World!!

Chris: Just trying to make something miserable bearable Peter..

Hello Big Bro...... smile
See it help I already have a smile on my face.
And the picture brings even a bigger smile to my face, I assume this is father and child and the child gave him the umbrella..... it is hers/his 'but Daddy you can borrow mine otherwise you get wet'.....
I always try to greet people with a simple good morning/afternoon/evening depends on the time of the day.
A radio station had the 'hello day' a few weeks back and they told about the reactions of people, not everybody is amused.
At work I know people had a problem with me being to cheerful in the morning by greeting everybody...... just roll my eyes here.....
Have a great day and I hope you get a lot of 'hellos'.... smile
Chris: I am unlikely to get many hellos due to my unfriendly disposition Astrid

Your picture, and my efforts later to say hello to at least ten people, will make for a cheerful day, Chris.I know you will be doing the same as you prowl around our city in the rain
Chris: I am doing the perfect thing today Lisl: going to the council tip..
How can you not smile and say HELLO to everyone after seeing such a charming image, Chris. The thing is, it should be every day, of course! (sigh)
Chris: It should be Ginnie but..

Guten Morgen, Chris! Grüß Dich! Sorry, I don't like the greeting word 'Hello', but is very usual here, too, but only under the young people - a kind of Americanization - but I love the idea today for preserving world peace we need, we need so much - for at all corners the world is burning. I'm very sorry that the conflicts in Near East are recently incresing again - and no end of them is in sight.
I like your funny photo and I love the gutteridge!
Chris: The gutteridge is a joy in this picture Philine

Germany is becoming Americanised..
I suppose these days it would involve sending 10 text messages
Chris: Hahaha - wonderful!

I've not heard of World Hello Day before. I try and bring a little happiness in the dour life of my fellow Civil Servants witha cheery "Good morning" each day and am often met with eitehr being ignored with some thinking I'm completely mad (and otehrs knowing I'm completely mad) and sometime with justan occasional "Uuugghh"-type of grount. I like the umbrells here; due you think the adult ones had sold out?
Chris: It looks as if these people have decided to adopt their very own style, getting wet in the Droitwich-style rains with abandon.

When you have the time go round your entire work establishment and shout HELLO loudly at each & every person. You will find this most satisfying - trust me..
Hello Chris... I like your image... and info too.
Chris: A pleasure Jacquelyn
Hello Chris. I have already said good morning to the cats and my coffee has said good morning to me. I have plenty of opportunity to complete this task in a short time.

I like your shot. What parents do to keep kids entertained!
Chris: They will do anything..
Hello, Chris.
Chris: Err..hello Tom

Oh, you yellowbeared this one. Well, hello Tiff.
Chris: He has been a terrible influence on me Louis. Hello!
I'm not expecting to meet 10 people today, it's 'showery Shepshed' and I'm staying home in the dry!
Chris: Pouring with liquid Droitwich here in Bath today..
Hello Chris. I love the brollies giving Droitwich Friday a bit of a lift
Chris: Slightly cheerful aren't they
Pictures like this remind me why I like it here...Hello Chris...smile
Chris: Hahaha - thank you Frank!
Hello Shutter chance.
Great shot, Chris. Made me smile.
Chris: Hello Pauline!

Hello to you Chris! Lovely splashes of colour in your treatment of this rainy picture
Chris: Hello Anne, yes it is colourful abuse isn't it
Golly what a brolly - I assume it is safe to use the word in this context
Chris: Yes it is Martin
I have already done about ten hellos today...
Chris: You're a great greeter Larry
