The holiday was founded by the informal, public organization Radiant Peace Foundation International, founded in 1986 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Initially, it was celebrated on June 22, but then it was decided to postpone the date to September 22. For the first time, solemn events were held in Florida, the idea was supported with pleasure by the mayor of the city of St. Petersburg, but gradually they joined the celebration in England, Ireland, and Romania. That is why the holiday received international status.
- The initiator of the holiday was the mayor of the city of St. Petersburg – David J. Fisher, he dreamed of seeing a world filled with light, peace and wanted to share this with the people around him.
- It was David J. Fisher who founded the Radiant Peace Foundation International, which later became a foundation whose members promote the ideas of peace.
