Celebration of Life Day

Celebration of Life Day was originally planned as a day for children, because for parents they are the most valuable thing in life. Later, the holiday began to be initiated with kindness, love and all the good that is present in everyone’s life. In the hustle and bustle, people forget about the most important values, stop enjoying the new day, but time goes by and you need to enjoy every minute.


The founder of the holiday was Ronald Reagan. The president was an ardent opponent of abortion, which is why he proposed to establish the National Sanctity of Human Life Day in 1984. Much later, the name was changed to Celebration of Life Day.

The holiday continued to be celebrated under the two subsequent presidents, but during the reign of Bill Clinton, it was forgotten for as long as 8 years.

Under Donald Trump, the tradition has been revived. Some churches even marked the day of life in their calendars, classifying it as a religious one.

Over time, not only the name has changed, but also the meaning of the national day. Nobody makes a special emphasis on abortions anymore, Americans are trying to spend a holiday with their families, devote more time to children, and visit distant relatives. By paying attention to loved ones, a person shows his joy that he has such a wonderful friendly family. Even if you don’t have to see all your loved ones often, you need to appreciate the precious minutes spent together.
