Global Family Day - 1 January

Global Family Day is celebrated every year to promote the concept of harmony and unity in the world. 

Linca Grover, an American peace activist, was the founder of the Global Family Day, previously known as OneDay. 

In 1977 the United Nations General Assembly launched the International Decade for the Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World.  To promote this a book titled “One Day in Peace – January 1, 2000” was published which revolved around the concept of a day in the future where there is only peace and no war.

Linca Grover played a prominent role in promoting One Day in Peace. In 1999, the members of the United Nations received an invitation to formally celebrate the first day of the year as Global Family Day. One year later in 2001, the day was made an annual event, seeing the success and the impact.
