During the United Nations General Assembly held on 20th June 2012, it was established that the 20th March would be marked International Day of Happiness. The sixty-sixth session of the General Assembly was convened at the initiative of Bhutan a country who led by example and recognized the supremacy of National Happiness over National Income since the 1970's. Secretary General Ban Kimon and the General Assembly of the UN passed a resolution and proclaimed the 20th March as International Day of Happiness in recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as a universal goal in each individuals life.
