International Day of Happiness!

20 03 2017

The United Nations established March 20th as International Day of Happiness to “recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.” The day has been celebrated since 2013. For this year, the UN chose those lovable blue Smurfs of cartoon fame to promote its 17 sustainable development goals on the International Day of Happiness. The “Small Smurfs Big Goals” campaign is designed to encourage young people everywhere to learn about and support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Happiness + sustainable development? Seems a winning combination sure to make even the grumpiest Smurf smile. Oh, and it’s also the first official day of Spring. Now there’s something to be happy about!
