World Thinking Day, Thursday 22nd February 2018
World Thinking Day is a celebration of ten million girls worldwide that has taken place on every 22 February since 1926. It remains a day for all Guides and Girl Scouts to think of each other and celebrate their sisters all around the world.
How the celebrations began
In 1926, delegates from Guide and Girl Scout organisations across the world met in the USA for the 4th World Conference. They decided to create a day for Guides and Girl Scouts to celebrate being part of an international movement. Delegates chose to hold the first celebration on the joint birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout and Guide Movement, and his wife Olave, who served as World Chief Guide. And so, 'Thinking Day' was born.
To celebrate and support World Thinking Day 2018 children (and one teacher) who are members of Scouts, Beavers, Guides, Brownies etc. wore their uniform on Thursday 22nd February.
