Every year, 20 March is celebrated and observed as the International Day of Happiness.

The International Day of Happiness aims to raise awareness about the importance of happiness in one's life and the overall impact it can have on an individual's well being.

International Day of Happiness was established in 2012 at the first-ever UN conference on Happiness.

“This International Day of Happiness is more than just a fun celebration, it also remind us all that the world is a better place when we connect with and care about the people around us”

In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” .
