Universal Hour of Peace Day

Universal Hour of Peace is the most important day of the year to contribute to the cause of peace on our planet. In a time of war and dangerous weapons that can potentially end humanity, we must work together to foster harmonious relations between peoples.


The celebration takes place from 23:30 December 31 to 12:30 January 1 and covers all time zones. This day was founded by activist Barbara Condron in 1995, and was first celebrated in the fall on October 24th. The following year, it was changed to the end of the year.

The end of the year is a great time to take stock and plan for the future. However, it can be difficult to do this when there are conflicts in the world. It requires tremendous effort to prevent or end wars. But the holiday is not just relevant globally, it is also important for families to resolve misunderstandings and troubles. This is a great time to reconcile with a loved one and start anew.
