Old people's day

1st October is a very special day - it has been put aside for the celebration of every person who is half-a-century or older. It is a day for reflection for all those who have given their time in acquiring knowledge and giving back something to this most wonderful planet that they were born on.

It is not saying that everyone over 50 years of age is old - but rather acknowledging their wisdom and experience. In many cultures this does not have to be pointed out - but for the first time it is now recognised by all in this new and very special day known as 'Old People's Day.'

Happy Old People's Day to everyone.
