As Bill Gates says, “The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow”. The invention of the internet has changed the world in so many ways. However, it has its own set of pros and cons. Therefore, on February 9 we celebrate Safer Internet Day to protect ourselves from the dangers of the internet. Moreover, we also celebrate National Pizza day. Let us read more about both days.
Safer Internet Day
The Internet can become a frightening place if not used properly. It has helped bring our friends and family closer. But, at the very same time, we face the potential of becoming a victim of internet crimes every day. Therefore, with the boon of communication, education, and awareness, the internet has come with the possible bane of safety.
The date of celebrating Safer Internet Day changes annually. But however, this year it falls on February 9. This day officially began celebrating in the year 2012, by the US Department of Homeland Security and the European Commission. Each year they choose a theme and work on it. For example, in the year 2015, the chosen theme was “Actions & Activism Toward a Better Net & World”. This year they primarily focused on cyberbullying and integration with the National Parent Teacher Association.

We can say that Pizza Day started in the late tenth century in Naples, Italy. Moreover, this is when records show the presence of the first pizza. It started out as a simple and round flatbread spread with sauces and sprinkled with cheese. But, the person who most likely made this dish as a creative snack for their families had no idea of the sensation that they had whipped up.
