Every year, March 20 is celebrated as International Happiness Day/ International Day of Happiness worldwide. The sole aim of celebrating this day is to inspire and advance the global happiness movement. Read to know more about the importance and reason why International Happiness Day is celebrated.
International Happiness Day was originally founded and conceptualised by the CEO of the United Nations New World Order project, Jayme Illien in 2006. The main idea behind celebrating this day is to establish happiness as a fundamental human right among the masses. It was one of the goals of the United Nations to celebrate the happiness, freedom, and well-being the mankind on earth.
The first-ever International Happiness Day was celebrated in 2013 and has been celebrated every year ever since then. The American singer Pharrell Williams has been heavily promoting the event in the past. The theme for this year's International Happiness Day campaign is ‘Happiness For All, Together'.
