It’s World Smile Day

The first Friday of October is celebrated as World Smile Day. Probably because we all tend to smile a little more on Fridays.

It was initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist known for creating the Smiley Face in 1963. The first World Smile Day was held in 1999 and has continued every year. When Ball died in 2001 the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was created to honor his name and memory. The Foundation carries on the work of “improving this world, one smile at a time.”

So, smile today.

It won’t cost you anything but you might get something in return.
