May 15 is celebrated as the International Day of Families. The day was proclaimed by the UN so as to dedicate the whole day to families and appreciate their importance. Since 1994, May 15 is celebrated as Family Day. Every year since 1996, the UN secretary-general makes a Family Day motto for each year. This is all done to promote awareness regarding issues related to families and the awareness regarding the social, economic and demographic effects on a family. 

Apart from the International Day of Families on May 15, the month of May has International Museum Day, World Day for Cultural Diversity, International Day for Biological Diversity, World Turtle Day and World Schizophrenia Day.
