International Day of Happiness Comes To Roanoke County


Roanoke Co., VA - Thursday was the International Day of Happiness and people all over the world celebrated.

The Patterson family of Roanoke County was interested in spreading the love and hooked up with Live Happy magazine.

On Thursday, they helped set up a virtual wall of happiness, one of 35 across the country and the only one in Virginia.

All day volunteers received people at Tanglewood Mall interested in spreading smiles by allowing them to post their message of happiness on the wall.

Recent polls show Denmark is the happiest country in the world with the US coming in at 17; another reason the Patterson's decided to get involved.

"The world's a big place. There are a lot of countries and 17, I don't think is that bad. But I like being number one. So I think we are making a big impact here today," said organizer, Jeanie Patterson.

This is the second year of the UN organized event.
