APRIL is the fourth month in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is also the first month of the second quarter of the year and is most often described in the Philippines as the mid-summer month (March-April-May). There are many notable events happening in April and one National event in the Philippines. Here are seven of the most talked-about celebrations of April 2013.
APRIL FOOLS DAY (April 1)
All Fools Day is a well recognized event in history. Although its origins are uncertain, April Fools Day is celebrated similarly like the medieval Festival of Fools where people pull pranks, practical jokes and hoaxes on people in the element of fun and hilarity.
WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY (April 2)
This United Nation designated event is being celebrated annually since 1989. WAAD was changed to April 2 from the original September 9 through a UN General Assembly Resolution in 2007. So technically, WAAD is celebrating its 5th event this coming April 2, 2013
WORLD HEALTH DAY (April 7)
World Health Day is celebrated on April 7 to mark the anniversary of the founding of WHO (World Health Organization) in 1948. Each year a theme is selected for World Health Day that highlights a priority area of public health concern in the world. The theme for 2013 is high blood pressure.
BUDDHA’S BIRTHDAY (April 8)
East Asian countries celebrates the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha primarily by the Mahayana Buddhists.
BATAAN DAY (April 9)
Bataan Day or Araw ng Kagitingan is a Philippine National holiday that celebrates the valor of Filipino soldiers and commemorates the fall of Bataan during the World War 2.
EARTH DAY (April 22)
Earth Day is an annual event held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. April 22 was designated by the United Nation as International Mother Earth Day and is being celebrated by more than 192 countries worldwide every year.
SAINT GEORGE’S DAY (April 23)
April 23 is St. George’s Feast Day celebrated by various Christian denominations and particularly in Europe because St. George is also known as the dragon-slaying patron Saint of England.
The ambiance of 7th High had a futuristic theme – the only thing missing is a Howard Stark figure (Tony Stark aka Iron Man’s Father) explaining ‘The World of Tomorrow.’ (please refer to Captain America 2011 Movie) :)
In the middle of the performance, the center screen was utilized to creatively launch and orient the guests with BPI CARDS WONDERWORLD.
Staying true to the theme of the night, BPI introduced the new concept by someone playing as a female computer image on the screen which reminded me of the 80′s Max headroom – maybe she’s the daughter hehe
Here’s a summary of what BPI Wonderworld is all about:
- BPI eCredit Card, the first-ever virtual credit card exclusively designed for online shopping, BPI MasterCard cardholders enjoy greater peace of mind when shopping online. Because it is a companion card of the BPI Express Credit MasterCard variants— Blue, Gold, Edge, Petron and Skymiles—it uses a different card number with its own sub-limit that cardholders can set and adjust as they need it.
- My ePrepaid card—a no-hassle, no-approval-required, reloadable prepaid card that empowers its holders to buy whatever they want from the widest selection of MasterCard-affiliated online shopping sites without having to worry about submitting documents or maintaining a balance.
- www.BPICards.com, an interactive website where one can obtain up-to-date information on BPI cards features, promotions, and other items of interest to cardholders.
- DealMania.ph, a deal-buying site exclusive to BPI cardholders which is featured on the main page of BPICards.com. It gives up-to-date information on ongoing sales and promos from partner restaurants, hotels, wellness establishments, and many others more.
