Happy Fun Day

August 30th, 2008 marked Happy Fun Day. Happy Fun Day is an ancient tradition that goes back to at least a day ago. Happy Fun Day is a day to set aside past regrets and future anxieties and just enjoy the present. The location of Happy Fun Day events are typically in fun locations with happy people. Followers typically enter a state of heightened euphoria that lasts throughout the day.

The ancients devised Happy Fun Day after Happy Week, which is depicted in the video below:

Happy Fun Day often starts by briefly taking a trip outside one’s immediate surroundings, usually in the form of a day trip outside one’s city or town. This change in perspective can be refreshing, so to make the most of it, participants are asked to do the following:

  • Wear something that makes them happy.
  • Leave all sources of worry at home.
  • Smile.

 

Yesterday, two friends started Happy Fun Day by leaving their homes for greener pastures. They ran into other friends, played catch, laid back, enjoyed art, joked around, explored, ate, and laughed (even at some of the bad jokes!).

Happy Fun Day can be enjoyed with a friend or alone, but the key is to realize that either decision does not matter much. Happy Fun Day can be celebrated on any day and multiple times each year. The true spirit of Happy Fun Day is to realize that regardless of one’s circumstances, life is pretty awesome.

Happy Happy Fun Day, everyone!
