One day in 1963, Harvey Bell, a commercial artist from Worchester, Massachusetts created the smiley face. We all know how commercial the smiley has become, and worried about that prospect, Harvey declared the first Friday in October to be National Smile Day.
Smiley faces know no politics, no geography, no religion and for at least one day a year, neither should we.
Since the first Friday of October, 1999, we've been celebrating World Smile Day. Dedicate yourself this year to this one day of smiles and acts of kindness.
