Happiness Happens Day

In 1998 the Secret Society of Happy People declared August 8 as Happiness Happens Day, and expanded the celebration to be a month long in August 2000 — that way you can celebrate whatever day is convenient. August 8th was chosen because it was the day the Secret Society of Happy People got their first member.

In 1999, the Society asked all 50 state governors for a proclamations recognizing Admit You’re Happy Day and governors from 19 states sent proclamations.
