See also

Every year, people from all walks of life observe an annual "holiday" that celebrates spiritual principles, faiths and various religions from all over the world. The third Sunday in January is World Religion Day. Created by the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States (the governing Body of the Baha'i Faith) in 1950, this year's event takes place on Jan. 19, 2014.

Regardless of one's personal belief, World Religion Day not only celebrates various religions, but also shines the spotlight on the unifying power, spiritual principles and fundamental similarities that bond us together. Whether Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Islam, it is important to remember we are all united. Various interfaith events including speakers, exhibits, entertainments, feasts and demonstrations, will be held around the globe in honor of the yearly occasion.

World Religion Day not only provides an opportunity to learn about various faiths and religions, but inspires peace, harmony and respect despite one's beliefs.
