Is there Value attached to international days?

There are quite a number of national and international days celebrated in the remembrance and commemoration of issues as per sector or national courses. In the development world a number of these days are celebrated to put emphasis on certain issues affecting people globally or nationally though it’s still tricky to attach impact to these days. Having worked in the development sector for a while there is a feeling that Meaning has been lost FOR these days. Between January and March there were about 20 international days to commemorate and among these some of which you know and some you probably don’t. I bet  all these celebrations had a good theme and a call for action to which certain commitments were made and supposed to be followed up. To this i feel very little is done  year in and year out and we keep repeating the same mistakes. So is there value in celebrating these international days ? Comment and let me know what you think
