Global Love Day

Global Love Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on the 1st of May. This is a day for people to take the time to celebrate humanity and spread a little bit of unconditional love. If everyone in the world took the time to just be kind to their fellow human beings, then this world will be a much nicer place to live.

Scientific studies through the years have shown that loving your neighbor is a great way for a person to make themselves feel better about themselves. It also causes a ripple effect through a society where one act of love given to a person leads to that person spreading love to other people. That’s why it’s important to observe this holiday every year.

The History Of Global Love Day

Global Love Day was created in 2004 by Harold W. Becker. For those people who are not familiar with this person, he was the founder of a U.S. nonprofit organization known as The Love Foundation.

He created this holiday to encourage people, communities, and even countries to celebrate humanity by spreading unconditional love. It’s been observed on the first day of May ever since.
