Bluebird Of Happiness Day

The bluebird has been associated with joy, hope, and happiness for thousands of years. This bird has appeared in myths dating back to the Shang Dynasty in China and was symbolically important to Native American culture in North America. It has also been an important part of European folklore that goes back to the Middle Ages.

And this trend of associating bluebirds with luck and happiness has continued into the modern age. That’s probably why September 24th was designated as Bluebird of Happiness Day. It’s a day for people to embrace their happiness and perhaps learn a little bit more about these beautiful birds.

The History of Bluebird of Happiness Day

As we mentioned earlier, the bluebird is a bird that has a long and storied history in various cultures and folklore. It has also been significant from the start of the Industrial Revolution up until the present day.

In 1908, Maurice Maeterlinck wrote a play called “The Blue Bird” that depicted two children searching for the Bluebird of Happiness. In 1934, the song “Bluebird of Happiness” was written by Sandor Harmati, Edward Heyman, and Harry Parr-Davies.

This helped cement the phrase into the popular vernacular, which is why it’s still used today. Unfortunately, the origins of Bluebird of Happiness Day aren’t all that clear to us. We can’t find any references to it on the World Wide Web.

We don’t know who created it, why they created it, or why they chose to place it on September 24th. All of those details remain a mystery to us. As usual, we’ll try to find the origins of this holiday, and if we do uncover those origins, we’ll update this section.

All that matters is that a person does what lifts their heart and spirit. Whatever a person chooses to do, they should take the time to share it with their families, especially if their families bring them joy.
