Commonwealth Day

Der "Commonwealth Day" findet jährlich am zweiten Montag im März statt. Er erinnert an die Zusammenarbeit der Mitgliedsstaaten des "Commonwealth". Dazu zählen über 50 Länder die meist aus einst abhängigen Gebieten des "British Empire" hervorgingen.

Der "Commonwealth Day" wurde ursprünglich auf den Geburtstag von Queen Victoria gelegt.

Prime Minister Harold Macmillan gab im Jahr 1958 die Umbenennung des seit 1904 gefeierten "Empire Day" in "Commonwealth Day" bekannt.

Commonwealth Day

In 1973 the National Council in Canada of the Royal Commonwealth Society in a letter to Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau suggested that the idea of Commonwealth Day to be observed simultaneously throughout the Commonwealth be included on the agenda for the Heads of Government Meeting to be held in Ottawa that year. The proposal was not included in the agenda of that meeting but did appear as a Canadian item on the agenda of the 1975 meeting.

Commonwealth Day

Commonwealth Day is the annual celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations held on the second Monday in March, and marked by a multi-faith service in Westminster Abbey, normally attended by Queen Elizabeth II as Head of the Commonwealth, with the Commonwealth Secretary-General and Commonwealth High Commissioners in London. The Queen delivers an address to the Commonwealth, broadcast throughout the world.

Contents History

...
"Empire Day" was introduced in the UK in 1904 by Reginald Brabazon, the 7th Earl of Meath, 'to nurture a sense of collective identity and imperial responsibility among young empire citizens'. In schools, morning lessons were devoted to "exercises calculated to remind (the children) of their mighty heritage". The centrepiece of the day was an organised and ritualistic veneration of the Union flag. Then, schoolchildren were given the afternoon off, and further events were usually held in their local community. "Empire Day" became more of a sombre commemoration in the aftermath of World War I, and politically partisan as the Labour Party passed a resolution in 1926 to prevent the further celebration of "Empire Day". After World War II, the event fell into rapid decline, and Prime Minister Harold Macmillan bowed to the inevitable on 18 December 1958, when he announced in Parliament that the name of "Empire Day" would be changed forthwith to "Commonwealth Day".

The Union Flag is flown from public buildings on the second Monday in March to mark "Commonwealth Day". The Scottish Parliament Building also flies the Commonwealth flag from the fourth flagpole.
The Queen, and other members of the Royal family, attend a special service at Westminster Abbey.

Ides of March

Die heutige Redewendung dt. "Iden des März", engl. "Ides of March", (lat. "Idus Martii", lat. "Idibus Martiis"), meist in der Variante "Beware of the Ides of March" = dt. "Hüte dich vor den Iden des März" geht auf den englischen Bühnenschriftsteller William Shakespeare zurück. Shakespeare machte aus dem Tod des römischen "Julius Caesar" Literatur. In Act 1, Scene 2 of seines Dramas "Julius Caesar” läßt er den römischen Feldherrn und Diktator mit einem Wahrsager zusammmentreffen. Dieser kündigt ihm für die "Iden des März" ein großes Unglück an und warnt ihn mit den Worten "Beware the Ides of March".

In Act III, Scene I meint Cäsar zu dem Wahrsager "The Ides of March are come." und dieser antwortet "Aye, Caesar, but not gone."

Und es kam wie es kommen mußte. Am 15. März des Jahres -44 wurde Julius Caesar von Senatoren erstochen.

Bleibt nur noch zu erklären, was es mit den "Ides of March" (lat. "Idibus Martiis") auf sich hat. Die "Iden" waren allgemein die Tage, die einen Monat in zwei Hälften teilten. Da man die Mitte des Monats auf den ersten Tag des Vollmonds legte, fielen die Iden per Definition in den Monaten März, Mai, Juli and Oktober auf den 15. und in den anderen Monaten auf den 13.

Die seltsamen Kalenderangaben der Römer waren im England von William Shakespeare anscheinend noch präsent, so daß der Bühnenautor davon ausgehen konnte, dass seine Zuhörer den Zeitbezug erkennen konnten.

Als Ironie der Geschichte könnte man sehen, dass sich Cäsar nicht nur einen Namen als Kaiser machte sondern auch eine Kalenderreform durchführte (Julianischer Kalender) und damit die Grundlage für das 365 Tage lange Jahr und das Schaltjahr alle vier Jahre schuf.

Marcus Brutus, sein ehemaliger Freund, war ebenfalls unter den Verschwörern. Das führte zu einer weiteren redewendung: lat. "et tu Brute", dt. "auch du Brutus?", engl. "and you too, Brutus?". Damit verweist man allgemein auf abtrünnige Freunde.

Thornton Niven Wilder, Schriftsteller (17.04.1897 (Madison (Bundesstaat Wisconsin)) - 07.12.1975 (Hamden (Bundesstaat Connecticut)), Werke: Pulitzer-Preis 1928, Pulitzer-Preis 1938, Pulitzer-Preis 1943, Friedenspreis des Deutschen Buchhandels 1957

Ides of March - Named after a line in the William Shakespeare play "Julius Caesar", in which a sooth-sayer warns "Beware, the Ides of March".

Ides of March: Why worrry?

Forget Friday the 13th. Ignore ladders, black cats, broken mirrors and spilt salt. Think instead of today, March 15, and beware.

And furthermore, the system lasted 2,000 years, well into the Renaissance, he wrote. This meant Shakespeare could include the line, and expect his audience to know what he meant.

What Are the Ides in the Ides of March?

Death of Ceasar

March 15th marks a very inauspicious anniversary. Like a black cat crossing your path, the Ides of March has become a metaphor for impending doom. How did a day that was once celebrated by the Romans become so heavily cloaked in superstition?

The Ides of March by Thornton Wilder
... The Ides of March, first published in 1948, is a brilliant epistolary novel set in Julius Caesar's Rome. Thornton Wilder called it "a fantasia on certain events and persons of the last days of the Roman republic."

The soothsayer's warning to Julius Caesar, "Beware the Ides of March," has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding. But in Roman times the expression "Ides of March" did not necessarily evoke a dark mood—it was simply the standard way of saying "March 15."

Inconstant as the Northern Star

Posted by M.H. Forsyth

Gordon Brown has just said that he will remain leader of the Labour Party no matter what, which is a clever, clever thing to announce on the "Ides of March", which is today. Every month has ides but March's may not be the one on which a leader should announce his plans for permanence. It took me right back to what dear old Julius said 2053* years ago today:

But I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fix'd and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
The skies are painted with unnumber'd sparks,
They are all fire and every one doth shine,
But there's but one in all doth hold his place:
So in the world; 'tis furnish'd well with men,
And men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive;
Yet in the number I do know but one
That unassailable holds on his rank,
Unshaked of motion: and that I am he,

Words and Their Stories

"Beware the Ides of March"
...
First, what exactly is an "ides"? The Latin root of "ides", a singular word, means "to divide". So, the "ides" of any month falls in its middle. The Roman calendar set "ides" on the 15th in March, May, July and October or on the 13th in the other months. The "ides" of a month usually falls on the first day of a full moon.

In Roman times, the "Ides of March" was known as a date for paying off debts. But this connection was quickly lost because of different timing between calendar months and changes in the moon’s appearance. The "Ides of March" was also a time people celebrated Mars, the god of war.

Red Nose Day

(E?)(L?) http://www.rednoseday.de/


(E?)(L?) http://www.rednoseday.com/
Clowns habe immer rote Nasen. und weil Kömmödianten einen wesentlichen Beitrag zu dieser grossangelegten Spendenaktion leisten, wird sie Ihnen zu Ehren "Red Nose Day" genannt.

Mit zahllosen Aktionen, Partys und Veranstaltungen haben sich bundesweit Gemeinden, Firmen, Sportvereine, Schulen und Privatpersonen dem Motto "Tut was Verrücktes und sammelt Geld!" angeschlossen, um das Charity-Event zu unterstützen. Um auf die großen Probleme von Kindern und Jugendlichen aufmerksam zu machen, ist Ingolf Lück mit einem Kamera-Team in die Slums von Nairobi gereist und Robbie Williams berichtet aus Mosambique - vor Ort informierten sich die Stars über Hilfsprojekte, die vom "Red Nose Day" unterstützt werden.
Das seit Februar 2003 gesammelte Geld kommt den renommierten Charity-Organisationen Kindernothilfe e.V., Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung, PowerChild e.V. und Comic Relief UK zu Gute.

Launched live on BBC ONE on Christmas Day 1985 from a refugee camp in Sudan, Comic Relief began with a few live events, drawing support from across the comedy community.

The first ever "Red Nose Day" hit our screens three years later in 1988 with Lenny Henry, Griff Rhys Jones and Jonathan Ross, presenting the show and raising an amazing £15 million!
Since then there has been 8 "Red Nose Days" that have raised more than £220 million. Red Nose Day cash in Africa has educated people about HIV and AIDS, taught women to read, immunised children and helped people rebuild their communities after conflict. Across the UK it has helped disabled people challenge prejudice and discrimination, supported older people in their fight to get their rights recognised and provided escape routes for women living with domestic violence.
This has all been possible thanks to the generosity of the general public and to the support of comedians and others across the media and corporate worlds.

RED NOSE DAY 2004: ProSieben startet verrückteste Spendenaktion Deutschlands
Zusammen mit Prominenten aus der Comedy-, Musik- und Show-Branche ruft ProSieben alle Bundesbürger zu Aktionen zugunsten Not leidender Kinder in aller Welt auf - Höhepunkt ist die große Comedy-Charity-Show am 26. März 2004 um 20.15 Uhr live auf ProSieben.
Im Rahmen des RED NOSE DAY 2004 ruft der Sender zum zweiten Mal alle Bundesbürger dazu auf, sich von 31. Januar bis 26. März 2004 an witzigen Aktionen zugunsten Not leidender Kinder in aller Welt zu beteiligen. "Haare rot für Kinder in Not" lautet diesmal das Motto, denn die Nase - das Symbol für den "RED NOSE DAY" - erscheint in neuem Outfit mit roten Haaren. Die roten Nasen sind ab 9. Februar 2004 wie im vergangenen Jahr bei den RED NOSE DAY-Partnern Burger King sowie den miniMAL- und HL-Märkten der Rewe-Handelsgruppe erhältlich. Alle Spenden sowie der Reinerlös aus dem Verkauf der roten Nasen und des Songs gehen in diesem Jahr an die Kinderhilfsorganisationen CHILDREN for a better World, Off-Road-Kids, die Kindernothilfe und an Comic Relief.
