I Want To Know: Did You Smile Today?
Celebrating World Smile Day!
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts, created the smiley face in 1963. I find that so cool because it is the year I was born.
A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose
Today the smiley is the world’s most recognizable symbol of goodwill and good cheer. World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday of every October — and this year, it is on October 1, 2021.
But we really don’t need a specially designated day to be nice, do we?
We come into this world crying, while those around us smile.
We leave this world smiling, while those around us cry.
— Confucius, 460 B.C.
