Happy International Family Day 2023 History, Significance, Message, Wish, Quotes, Status.

According to a decision of the United Nations General Assembly on September 20, 1993, May 15 was declared International Family Day. The United Nations declared 1994 as the International Year of the Family. The day is being celebrated to create a mindset of maintaining the traditions of the joint family.  Family is the repository of spiritual relationships. A bond of affection, love, camaraderie, and mutuality develops among family members. The image of the joint family, which existed all over the world since ancient times, is now much fainter.

The image of a joint family disappeared long ago in urban life.  Earlier there were some joint families in the village but now they are not. A history of living together has dissolved even in families of clan status. Family means living together with mother, father, brother, sister, grandfather, and grandmother. This concept of family in our society is prevalent since the past.  But as the days go by, we seem to be coming out of this idea.

As if we are gradually limiting the family to ‘husband-wife-children’. There is no place for parents or grandparents. It seems that the concept of joint or joint family has become ‘obsolete’ now. This is especially true in urban settings. If the mutual relationship between all the family members is like a friend, complex family problems can be dealt with.  Everyone’s way forward is smooth. It is in this context that International Family Day is being celebrated in the world today.

History of International Family Day

From 1750 to 1850, the Industrial Revolution took place in England and America. Due to the expansion of industry, the youth of western countries are inclined to earn money. This reduces their interest in the family. Many are separated from their families. They raised small families wherever they could for work and money. This is how many joint families have broken up.

Later, on the recommendation of the 30th session of the Commission for Social Development, this Parliament invited all States to express their views and to offer their views and proposals on the possible declaration of an International Year of the Family.

The Council requests the Secretary-General to submit to the General Assembly at its 30th third session a comprehensive report on the possible declaration of such a year, based on the views and proposals of Member States and on other ways and means for improving the situation, and as part of international efforts for family well-being and social progress and development. Cooperation is strong.

In resolution 44/82 of 9 December 1989, the General Assembly, in a resolution in 1989, approved 1993 as the World Year of the Family and proclaimed 15 May as International Family Day.

Significance of International Family Day

Family is considered the most important social foundation. Through the strong bonds of mutual respect, amity, sympathy, and love, a person in the family enjoys the highest benefits of society. Family is of immense importance in every country and culture of the world. Family is said to be the mirror of society and the state. The role and responsibility of the family are very important in the social development of the state.

Family is a man’s first and greatest school. Just as there are some rules in the management of the state, there are also rules in the family. In modern society, the joint family with mutual love and the previous form of human bond is gradually disappearing, and the single-family is increasing. Family is man’s first school. People are being separated from their families, be it because of work or by choice, and as a result family, education, and our thousands of years of tradition are being lost.

There are many objectives behind celebrating the International Day of Families, the primary of which is to convey the importance of family. Apart from this, the day highlights the issues affecting families around the world. Families around the world often face various problems, and every year the day highlights those issues and provides various ways to deal with them. The day also emphasizes family protection and support.

How to celebrate International Family Day?

Considering the family as the focal point of development, it is essential to emphasize the happiness and prosperity of all members of the family. Therefore, everyone should strive to maintain good health, peace, and cordial relationship among all family members and raise awareness among the public at all levels to highlight the importance of the matter. Just as there are some constitutions in the management of the state, there should also be a family constitution.

For example, building good relations with everyone in the family, maintaining family order, not telling lies, respecting the elders, returning home at a certain time, completing one’s own work, hating lies, and developing the heart through the practice of human values. We have an ethnic characteristic; we have our own culture. We have to keep all this in mind and move forward. We must understand that there is no glory in anything borrowed from others. Rather, it is an insult to us. After all, our social problems are increasing day by day due to the breakdown of family ties. Instability is increasing.
