This day is also celebrated as the global day of peace and sharing in the United States of America.

Families come together to welcome the new year.
The bond between us is the most precious treasure to me, and I’m lucky to have a family like you.
Families are our tiny little worlds where peace and harmony never leave our sides.
No one has a perfect family, but mine is perfect for me! Love you all.
I will never be able to describe in words what my family means to me. If anyone wants to know, they will have to go inside my heart to see.
I really appreciate the way my family members have come out from a difficult situation and feel lucky to be a part of this superb and loving family.
I am truly blessed to have a family that I have. No matter what, I know all of you will always be there to guide me and help me.
Whatever trouble may come in life, as long as I have my family, nothing can bring me down.
There is no better place than your family when you want to have a sanctuary of your own. Family is all that matters.
The exact year of the Global Family Day initiation is not known, even the origin of this day is ambiguous. However, it is believed that this day begins in 1997, with the proclamation of the United Nations General Assembly’s first year of the millennium to start the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.
This resulted in the celebration of Peace and, consequently, with Global Family Day. Hence The Global Family Day is also known as One Day of Peace and Sharing. The United Nations General Assembly’s declaration made in 1997 started with the theme “One Day of Peace”, observed on 1 January.
Irrespective of language, religion, country, race, colour, Global Family Day encourages all people to share their love and compassion with each other and spend this time in harmony.
The day was supported by Linda Grover in the United States to promote this event. The promotion of this day includes a 1996 children’s book by Steve Diamond and Robert Alan Silverstein named One Day In Peace, January 1, 2000. The book was translated into 22 languages. In 2001, The United Nations General Assembly has established this Day as an annual event.
