International Day of Happiness History
It was in 2013 when the United Nations started to observe the International Day of Happiness. The resolution was passed back in July 2012. This was an initiative that was first stressed upon by Bhutan who believed in the importance of national happiness, hence adopting ‘Gross National Happiness’ instead of Gross National Product.’
Every year, the UN comes out with the World Happiness Report that rates countries around the world to see how they have worked on their sustainable development and overall well-being. This year’s list was interesting as it rated them keeping the effect of the novel coronavirus in mind. In 2021, Finland was ranked as the world’s happiest country in this regard, with Denmark coming in second and Switzerland third.
