From International Day of Happiness to Talk Like a Pirate Day


Today we marked the celebration of the UN International Day of Happiness.

Created in New York in 2012 this global celebration is coordinated by Action for Happiness and looks to promote… well, happiness.

People around the world are encouraged to look on the bright side of life; I don’t know maybe paint a lovely watercolour of some flowers or run as fast as you possibly can through a green meadow then laugh hysterically as you fall over. Just be happy…

Seeing as though today, 20 March 2014 is International Day of Happiness, it got me thinking how many other weird and wonderful days of celebration there are out there? Below are just some of my favourites:
