Global Beatles Day (founded 2009) is a day honoring and celebrating the phenomenon and ideals of the Beatles, collectively and individually, for their gifts to the world including, but not limited to, their promotion of peace and love, of truth and youth, and of the expansion of human consciousness. More specifically, Global Beatles Day commemorates the Beatles music - their promotion and expansion of rhythm and blues, rock and roll, world music... and especially their collective and personal exploration of a myriad of musical ideas and innovations.
The Beatles paved the way for global changes in personal expression, fashion, imagination, sex, and art. They had as much or more impact on global society than anyone of their time.
“The purpose is to have a globally recognized day to thank and acknowledge the Beatles for all they have done to change the world,” says Faith Cohen, the originator of the idea.

"All you need is love" is a song written by John Lennon was broadcast to 26 countries via satellite and watched by 400 million on June 25, 1967.
