Universal Hour of Peace Day

Universal Hour of Peace is the most important day of the year. He tells the population that everyone can contribute to the creation of peace on the planet. We live in a troubled period: states are waging bloody wars, developing deadly weapons that can kill humanity … Only by uniting can one build peaceful relations between peoples.


The holiday is celebrated from 23:30 December 31 to 12:30 January 1. It covers all time zones and lasts the whole day! The date was founded by the activist and public figure Barbara Condron, who decided that the celebration was simply necessary. The Universal Hour of Peace was celebrated for the first time in 1995, however, it happened in the fall – on October 24th. The following year, it was moved to the usual number.

The end of the year is a great time to take stock and make plans for the future. Unfortunately, it is difficult to imagine the events of the coming year if there are conflicts around. Enormous human labor is required to prevent or stop disputes and wars.

The holiday is important not only globally: misunderstandings and troubles also arise in families. This is a great time to approach a loved one and talk, forget grievances and start everything from scratch. Many today call people they haven’t spoken to for years because of quarrels, make up and feel much better. This is some kind of therapy!

How to celebrate

What to do in the Universal Hour of Peace:

  • participate in events dedicated to the date! Find out about the events that will take place in the city;

Finally, get rid of the negativity in your soul, and then the coming year will be happy!
