What is International Day of Happiness?
The International Day of Happiness seeks to create awareness among people around the globe to find the meaning of happiness in their lives and how they can make it a reality in their own lives. People from various countries gather on this day to celebrate happiness, together with spreading the cheer of joy by throwing flowers on each other’s faces. Apart from that, people also take out different methods to make others happy like eating sweets and giving them gifts to one another. In fact, the International Day of Happiness is celebrated with much enthusiasm all over the world, as it coincides with World AIDS Day.
This day was born out of the understanding of Dr. Ben Wedgwood who believed that ‘The first smile is the beginning of the final smile’. To make people happy, one should smile at them and not in a mean manner and try to reach out to them with a warm heart. The flower arrangements for International Day of Happiness are designed in such a way that they give a perfect look to the entire event.
The International Day of Happiness strives to reveal the basic human rights of every person and make the people understand about the meaning of happiness. The day also highlights the fact that true happiness comes from within, which cannot be quantified and found in any object or possession. With the help of the internet, this global celebration has managed to achieve its success so far. There are various social media sites like Facebook where people upload their pictures and write happy notes about what they have been up to during the day. On the other hand, there are blogs where people write about the things that make them happy and share their views about the sustainability of global happiness.
