UN International Day of Happiness

UN International Day of Happiness

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always celebrated March 20

Don't Worry, be happy because today is International Day of Happiness. According to the UN, "Today is a day to be happy, of course!" The UN created and celebrates this holiday annually and forever, as a way to "recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world". Every year the UN issues a theme for this day. In 2020, the theme is "Happy Together". This theme was announced well before the onset of the global coronavirus pandemic in 2020. It is quite ironic that this theme was selected, while the virus caused such extreme social distancing. With the whole world caught up in this pandemic, it becomes easy to recognize and appreciate how family, friends, colleagues and humanity in general impacts our happiness. Happiness is very much connected with being together.  

Celebrate today by being together with family, friends, and loved ones. If you can't be together physically, take the time to make a phone call or Skype. We are certain the more people you connect with today, the happier you will be.

Song for Today: "Don't Worry, Be Happy", by Bobby McFerrin. This song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for two weeks and a Grammy winner for song of the year.

We wish you a world of happiness on International Day of Happiness!!!

Today's Quote: " Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife." - - Franz Schubert
