It just says "the first day of winter" All day? How do I account for time zone? Just to be sure, I'd better clear my schedule for two days. Because um, I really care about peace.

Normally I eschew touchy-feely, hippy-dippy, New Age nonsense, but to paraphrase Spamamander - and John Lennon - give piece a chance.

So what are we supposed to do down 'ere? Do we make it the start of winter too, or go more for summer? Maybe we should do both just to make sure?

You're forgetting spring and fall. Just to be on the safe side.

Oh, you might also want to cover off any day that ends with the letter "y".

Since when is that an excuse? Sounds like a cause so worthy that Husband and Wife can get involved together, no?

The world COULD fake world peace, but if it made a habit of it, it could lead to deep misgivings about itself, and only lessen its chances of ever actually getting there.

Then of course, the world would have to resolve things by finding the courage to deliver the devasting news that it had only ever been feeling "kind of chilled," rather than reaching the pinnacle of absolute world peace.

After that, a number of things could happen - the world might find itself lonely because no-one could trust it to be authentically peaceful any more. On the other hand, the world might find understanding and some gentle coaxing to enable it to momentarily reach full and complete world peace. The world would then have a little cry and whisper sweet nothings into the wee small hours and then, before dawn, have another go. ETA- That's the trouble with world peace. It only lasts for a few seconds at a time.

I think I jumped the shark. (Can you tell I am in NaNoWriMo mode? [Big Grin] )

Al-luring, I think the earth would move due more to the effort expended to achieve, rather than from the big "O" itself. *L*

Nonny, maybe the single people could line up and help each other out. Kinda like "Hands Across America."
