Happiness Happens Day

August 8 is Happiness Happens Day, a day to celebrate all things happy.

Created by the Secret Society of Happy People in 1999 as Admit You’re Happy Day, this unofficial holiday encourages people to be open about their happiness and to share it with others.

Unlimited Happiness

The holiday is based on the premise that happiness is unlimited and contagious and that sharing one's happiness and can bring a lot of joy in other people's lives. In addition, the unofficial holiday commemorates the day the first member joined the Secret Society of Happy People. In 2000, the Society expanded the celebration of happiness and declared August as Happiness Happens Month.

How to Celebrate?

While being happy can mean different things to different people, Happiness Happens Day encourages people to take stock of their lives and try to do and think about things that make them happy and to share this joy with others. Here are some ways to celebrate this happy day:

  • Do something nice for yourself - after all, happiness starts at home.
  • Make someone else happy by doing something nice for them. It can be something as simple as giving up your seat on the bus to someone else or a more elaborate gesture like volunteering your time and money to a charity of your choice. Studies have found that volunteering doesn't only help people bring joy in their lives but can also help them live longer.
  • Participate in a HappyThon - a social media campaign run by the Secret Society of Happy People that encourages people to send happy, joyful and uplifting messages to people around the world.

Did You Know...

...that in 2012 the United Nations has declared March 20 as the International Day of Happiness?






Did you see the movie about the hot dog?

It was an Oscar wiener.




Did you hear the one about the guy who invented Tic Tacs?

They say he made a mint.




Person 1: I just burned 2000 calories in 20 minutes.

Person 2: How?!

Person 1: I forgot to take my brownies out of the oven.




Every morning I think I’m going to make pancakes,

but I keep waffling.




There are only two types of computers in the world: those that waste your precious time and those that waste your precious time faster.




My dog licked the crumbs out of my computer keyboard and earned an online college degree.
