Happy World Chess Day

Today (July 20) is World Chess Day. It commemorates the founding of FIDE on this day in 1924, and has become a more noticeable thing over the last few years. The theme for this year is about teaching, with the idea that chess players should take the day to teach the rules etc to someone new.
I doubt I will be able to successfully do that today, but I will be doing my usual chess coaching today, so I'm claiming partial credit.
