There are mother's day, father's day, labour day, valentine day and now come a day we really ought to celebrate


The United Nations on Thursday declared that March 20 each year will be the International Day of Happiness -- and it wants everyone to join in the fun.

The UN General Assembly passed a resolution proclaiming the new commemoration that adds to an already packed UN calendar of international days -- from world poetry day to world migratory bird day.

"The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal," said the resolution which was passed by consensus in the 193-member assembly.
