World Religion Day is celebrated every January on the third Sunday of the month. The aim of World Religion Day is to promote understanding and peace between all religions, encouraging people to learn about other faiths and their followers.
What Are The Six Major Religions?
The six major religions of the world are Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism and Sikhism. These are the most widely practised religions in the world. Nearly seventy-five per cent of the world practices one of these six religions. World Religion Day seeks to emphasise the similarities between these religions, and the role religion has played in uniting people across the planet.
