Happiness Day (ENG)





Happiness is BEST when SHARED was the catalyst to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Happiness which occurs every year on the 20th of March. We celebrate it every year on the closest Saturday to the 20th of March.

The need to focus on what brings us joy and happiness is higher than ever.

Join us when we celebrate Happiness Day at Højbro plads from 12:00-17:00! 

Three times, the UN has chosen the Danes as the happiest people in the world. What is the secret of true happiness and how can we share it with others? Happiness is found in many places; in love, song, music, dance, community and sometimes by something tasty. Many senses were touched when last year's International Day of Happiness was celebrated.

Focus on happiness and do something good for yourself and join us on March 23, 2024.
Take a spring stroll in Copenhagen and help us celebrate International Day of Happiness.

Thank you to all who have contributed to making a fantastic event happen and to all who have donated time, money, and gifts!

In 2025, we'll do it again! We hope to see all of you again on:

But a new world has opened up for her now that the Danish language has opened new doors and ways of writing, making it all much more enjoyable.
Anne loves nature, and it can be felt in her new single "Det er nu, du skal leve det" (Now is the time to live it), and perhaps you'll feel like jumping into the water and living a little more, right now. The album "Forårsdrøm" (Spring Dream) is on its way from Anne Idskov with more Danish songs.
