20 March – Origin and Need of International Happiness Day

‘The most important thing is to enjoy your life-to be happy. It’s all that matters.’


Happiness is a feeling that should always come from inside. But people have forgotten the real meaning of happiness. They join classes, coaching and sessions to get rid off their worries and tensions in life. But why such situation comes that you need someone from outside to cheer you off!!

This is also true that today’s generation is the most developed one and everything is available just on the click of a button but still something is missing, and that something is ‘Happiness’.

Why people are not happy?

Definition of Happiness is different for everyone. Some consider money as their happiness while there are many rich people who are struggling with depression. A school going kid may get happy with the marks while many who have got admissions in some of the top most universities are still depressed.

Everyone has his own benchmark of getting happier, and when that benchmark of happiness is not achieved he/she goes into depression. Once a person becomes depressed he would need some professional help or family support as this could be dangerous for the life ahead.

In this fast pace life when the happiness measurement is gauged by the technology, there are many who are hollow from inside even after the presence of technology. No matter, how much technology gadgets you have, how much money you have….if you are not happiness from inside, everything fails.

To understand the meaning of happiness, the United Nations has come up with a day atleast in a year to celebrate the meaning of happiness.

Origin of International Day of Happiness?

The General Assemble of the United Nations reserved 20 March as the International Day of Happiness in its resolution 66/281 which was approved of 12 July 2012. Following this resolution, the world started to observe the Happiness day from 20 March 2013. So, we can say that the first International Day of Happiness was celebrated on 20 March 2013.

What is the Objective of International Day of Happiness?

To mark the importance of happiness, the United Nations has kept one day reserved for this. It invites everyone to come and join together to celebrate the feelings of happiness.

When there is no happiness, there is meaning of any advancement of technology.

This day is celebrated to create the awareness of happiness in the world. It is celebrated on 20 March every year with happiness. The day came into existence since 2013, when the United Nations started to observe it to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people which is getting extinguished completely.
