Well yes, it is the first day of fall (though in fact the equinox falls on the 22nd this year I think). But it is also The International Day of Peace! This was established in 2002 by the U.N. General Assembly, so as to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly every year (nice idea…think about it :-)). You can learn more about this day here.

Interestingly, there is also something called World Peace Day, and I found from “googling” that the Pope had selected January 1, 2008 as the “World Day of Peace”. Here is the Pope’s message about the day.

On a related note, 1986 was the International Year of Peace. Here is a statement on Peace released by the Baha’i International Community for the occasion.
