Did you know that the International Day of Happiness is celebrated throughout the world on March 20th? 

"On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want." -- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (Message for the International Day of Happiness, 20 March 2013)
