International Day of Families is observed on May 15 every year to know the importance of each family member and spend a day with them. Going by the name, a day for family means to allow loved ones to take a break from their daily lives and spend quality time together. It’s basically a relaxing day with a family with no big celebration. International Day of Families was proclaimed by the United Nations and Universal Peace Federation in 1993 to encourage better living standards and social progress of families across the world.

My family is everything. I am what I am thanks to my mother, my father, my brother, my sister… because they have given me everything. The education I have is thanks to them.

Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one. International family day!

The universe works in crazy ways. Your good luck will come in waves, and so does your bad, so you have to take the good with the bad and press forward. World family day! Happy International day for families.

May sadness never touches us, may the hands of God restlessly bless us. As long as it’s about our family happiness, I hope it will be infinite and endless. World family day!
