Wishing Happiness to All, at the Hollywood Christmas Parade
Actor Jason Dohring and his family join The Way to Happiness Foundation and Los Angeles Scientologists in wishing everyone happiness now and throughout the coming year.
Once again this year, The Way to Happiness Foundation and the Los Angeles Churches of Scientology extend a wish for happiness to everyone watching the Hollywood Christmas Parade.
The two-hour special on the 90th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade airs on The CW Network Friday, December 16, at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific and 7 p.m. Central. It features celebrities, giant balloons, floats, marching bands, equestrians, classic cars and Santa on his sleigh. And, as it has for three decades, it includes a float on The Way to Happiness, the common-sense guide to better living written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. On the float again this year was actor Jason Dohring of Veronica Mars.
“The principles in this book have really helped me achieve success as an actor,” says Dohring about The Way to Happiness. “It has also taught me how to be a better father and a more decent person.”
The book contains 21 precepts or principles that, if used, can increase anyone’s chances for happiness. Entirely nonreligious, its precepts may be used by anyone regardless of race, culture or creed to foster kindness, honesty, and the basic skills of living.
A free online course in 17 languages covering each of the 21 precepts is available through The Way to Happiness website.
Immensely popular since its first publication, the book is distributed in 115 languages in 186 nations. It holds a Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book.
To uplift every sector of society, the nonprofit, secular The Way to Happiness Foundation International headquarters in Glendale, California, was established as the coordination center for worldwide activities. Through support of the Churches of Scientology and Scientologists, The Way to Happiness and its educational materials and programs are now utilized in every corner of the globe, helping to instill a higher level of honesty, trust and self-respect.
The Scientology Network features the award-winning The Way to Happiness book on film in 17 languages. The network also documents the work of humanitarians who use The Way to Happiness to uplift their communities and countries.
The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
