The day was created by an advisor to the United Nations named Jayme Illien. Jayme first came up with the idea of creating a new day to celebrate happiness to the United Nations officials back in 2011.

Jayme then wrote UN resolution 66/281 titled ” International Day of Happiness” which all UN members states adopted by immediately on 28th June 2012.
