International Day of Happiness: March 20

Since 2012, the United Nations (UN) marks March 20 every year as the International Day of Happiness. Also called Happiness Day, it recognizes happiness is a basic human goal. With this, the UN calls upon countries to improve the wellbeing of their people by changing their public policies.

The initiative to declare a day of happiness came from the King of Bhutan. Bhutan was the first country to focus on the Gross National Happiness (GNH) for measuring the prosperity of  a nation.

In 2014, Pharrell Williams promoted the Happiness Day with the world’s first 24 hour music video to his song Happy.
