"Today is sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day. It’s dedicated to peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples.
To inaugurate the day, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters (in New York City).
