Traditional Celebration Ideas

Numbers

10% of the Earth is covered by Glaciers and those large areas of frozen ice make up about 75 % of the worlds fresh water reserve.  Give or take 50 million, it's estimated that Earth is 4.5 billion years old. There is an estimated 20 quintillion or 20 billion billion animals living today. Population of people as of 2019 is around 7.6 billion.
 

Description

Today is a day that we can all celebrate, it's a day that celebrates something wonderful we all share every minute of the day.  We honor mother earth in all it's grandeur and glory.  No matter what language you speak, no matter what religion you believe in, the one thing we all have in common is where we where born and that is planet earth.  Over the years we have not been kind to mother earth and negative greenhouse effects caused from many man made devices have threatened the environment with a deteriorating ozone and global warming.  Our glaciers, forests and jungles are suffering and need help for preservation.  Although the specifics of the effects of global warming can be controversial, I do think we can all agree that we can do better and conserving our natural resources and preserving mother earth for our future generations to enjoy.
