A Day to Celebrate Happiness

Do you know there is an official day to celebrate happiness? That is The International Day of Happiness.

The International Day of Happiness is celebrated annually on March 20th to raise awareness of the importance of happiness and well-being in individuals, communities and nations. The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the day in 2012 to recognize the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings worldwide.
