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.
