Friday, October 3rd is World Smile Day, a day dedicated to making people (either yourself or someone else) smile.
World Smile Day was founded by the creator of the famous yellow smiley face, Harvey Ball, in 1999. Mr. Ball had begun to believe that the smiley face was becoming too commercial and losing its real meaning. In order to combat that, he started the day to recognize that a smile has no particular religious or political meaning; that a smile is free and we can all pass along a smile to someone.
Making someone smile isn’t hard – just think about what makes you smile. And if you’re having trouble, here are some ways to help spread some grins:
- Hold the door for someone
- Pay for a stranger’s cup of coffee without them knowing it
- Give a generous tip to your server
- Fill up your spouse’s car with gas
- Offer your seat to someone when there aren’t any left
