Wednesday, November 21st is World Television Day!

As of December 1996, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed that November 21st is World Television Day. Over the years television has made an increasing impact of people’s decision-making and has played an important role in society. Television is a great source of entertainment, receiving news, discovering do-it-yourself projects such as new recipes or home improvement work. Some programs are designed to be completely educationally, expanding the knowledge of one’s mind.

Some American pop culture iconic moments were captured on live television such as the Presidential debate between President Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. In 1969 Americans huddled around their television set to witness, Neil Armstong, Michael Collins and Ed “Buzz” Aldrin’s moon landing.

Celebrate this World Television Day by watching your favorite TV shows and movies.
