Beatles Day: Pick a date for it! Too many, already

I thought July 10 was Beatles Day?! Septermber 9 was declared National Beatles Day in 2009. Why do we have so many? Why is there another one? It's getting confusing and crowded with all these Beatles Days. We need to have just one Beatles Day. What's the purpose of this one? I see it's the anniversary of the "All You Need Is Love" broadcast.

Some folks tell me, "Everyday is Beatles Day." Yea, I get that if that is what you subscribe to. For me, that mentality is like that for me on Beatlefest weekend, going to a Paul or Ringo concert, and on Sunday mornings when I listen to Breakfast With The Beatles. If there is to be one official universal Beatles Day, it either should be established by the survivng Beatles, their widows, and the fans. Not a handful of rogue Beatles days set up by individual fans, themselves.

Also, why not have an internet vote with a multiple choice of dates on all the Beatles forums, the Beatles official website, the Beatles and solo-Beatles' Facebook and Twitter pages, at the Beatlefests in Chicago and New Jersey, in Liverpool at The International Beatles Week, and at Abbey Road On The River in Louisville, KY. and in Washington D.C.. I'm not sure how long the voting period would last, but after it ends, they would be counted. The date with the most votes and is agreed and decided by Paul, Ringo, Yoko, and Olivia and the fans, that that day would be deemed as International/Universal Beatles Day! Though I do like the dates of July 10 and September 9.

What do you think of the concept of having one International Beatles Day? What date or dates would you throw in for it if there were ever to be an official vote for one? Should the fans decide it, the surviving Beatles and their widows, or both?

wouldn't it be finer to find some reference from within a song, since the band went through so many combinations/variations and so many integral stepping points: surely there must be some day that is mentioned in a song that would be even more appropriate...

can't think of one right now, but there must be something that would alleviate some of the meddlesome 'which date is best' bit by leaving it in song, right ?

...hmmmmmm

I vote for July 6 (the date they met) as Lennon-McCartney Day.
For Beatles Day, either August 16 (when it was decided to replace Pete Best with Ringo) or August 18 (when Ringo first performed with Beatles).

if there were to be such a day...i think it would be pretty egotistical of paul or ringo to be involved in the decision. hey paul, help us choose the day the whole world can collectively honor your awesomeness...

if there were such a day...it would be for the fans. they can choose.

i can't think of a tune that mentions a date...john's POB album mentions the 5th of november. but that seems a stretch.
