When is World Allergy Day?

First, what is World Allergy Day?  This is a day selected by the World Allergy Organization to get allergic diseases to be recognized as a world-wide problem.  This was also to encourage awareness of and education in allergies, particularly Childhood Asthma, within your country.  The physicians who focus their time and energies to treat these diseases belong to the specialty of allergy and immunology.  
Where?  The WAO meets biennially for the World Allergy Congress during December.  The proclamation originates during this meeting.
When?  The first World Allergy Day was 7/8/05, then moved to occur during the World Allergy Congress on 12/4/07 and 12/9/09.  There have been only 3.  This is all the history on this special Day, which is not written up anywhere else on the WWW that I could find.  Some historical trivia.
