International Day Of Happiness 2013
Today, 20th March 2013, is the beginning of the March Equinox – the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
An Equinox occurs twice every year (March Equinox – around 20th March and September Equinox – around 22nd September), where the center of the Sun is in the same plane as the Earth’s equator.
On these days, the length of the day and night are also equal.

Today is also the “International Day of Happiness” (IDH), declared by the United Nations General Assembly last year, on 28th June 2012.
StarHub Mobile Happython
To celebrate and increase awareness about IDH, HOT FM91.3 and StarHub Mobile join hands to spread the happiness all over Singapore in a marathon “live” show, the StarHub Mobile Happython – where two HOT FM91.3 radio DJs - Adam Piperdy and Gerald Koh – are attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the ‘Longest Marathon for a Radio Music Show DJ – Team’ by continuously broadcasting ‘live’ for 75 hours or more.
The StarHub Mobile Happython started at 6 am today, is broadcasting ‘live’ from an outdoor glass-clad booth set up at Plaza Singapura.
The current record of 74 hours and three minutes is held by UK deejays Christopher Firth and Richard Parker from a college radio station Hatch End Radio in United Kingdom.
Happy Everywhere – Happy Bus
Concurrently, StarHub’s Happy Bus has been roaming the streets to deliver random acts of kindness as well as bring special treats and surprises to delight folks all around Singapore.
This morning, the Happy Bus stopped by Lau Pa Sat to give out hundreds of cups of piping hot coffee to Professionals, Managers, Executives, and Businessmen (PMEBs).
Yesterday, the Happy Bus brought joy and laughter to the children from Carpe Diem Children’s Daycare and delivered refreshing drinks and snacks to surprised cabbies waiting in the taxi queue at Changi Airport too.
