Int'l Day of Happiness being observed
The International Day of Happiness, commonly known as Happiness Day, is being celebrated throughout the world on Monday.
It’s a day to be happy, of course! Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.
United Nations adviser Jayme Illien founded the day on June 28, 2012, when all 193 member states of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted UN resolution 66/281 The International Day of Happiness, following a multiyear campaign initiated in 2011 by the Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation. – source UNB
