According to Wikipedia, UN Day has been celebrated globally since 1947, when the UN General Assembly declared that Oct. 24, the anniversary of the Charter of the United Nations, “shall be devoted to making known to the peoples of the world the aims and achievements of the United Nations and to gaining their support for its work.” (NMIS)
