World Smile Day
World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday in the month of October every year. The original smiley face logo was created by commercial artist Harvey Ball from Worcester, Massachusetts in 1963. Concerned about the commercialisation of the quickly iconic graphic, Harvey established Smile Day, which encourages you to participate in acts of kindness and friendliness, and to smile and make others smile. The World’s first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999 and has been held annually since.
After Harvey died in 2001, the “Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation” was created to honour his memory. The slogan of the Smile Foundation is “improving this world, one smile at a time.” The Foundation continues as the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year. A smiley, or happy face, is a stylized representation of a smiling human face. It is commonly represented as a yellow (many other colors are also used) circle or sphere with two black dots representing eyes and a black half circle representing the mouth. “Smiley” is also sometimes used as a generic term for any emoticon. People all around the world cracking smiles today, making the world a better place. So … don’t just grin and bear it – give a real smile and spread a little kindness on World Smile Day!
Take this opportunity and send wishes, smile quotes and greetings in this special day.
