World smile day: meaning, quotes and greetings
Bhubaneswar: World Smile Day is celebrated on October 1 of this year. The day is devoted to smiling by encouraging people to act benevolently and make others smile.
World Smile Day has been celebrated on the first Friday of October every year since 1999. The day spreads joy around the world with a message that smiling knows no political, geographic or cultural boundaries.
Importance of World Smile Day:
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts, first created a smiley face in 1963. This smiling graphic image has become the most recognizable symbol of goodwill and good humor in the world.
Over the years, Harvey realized that the original meaning of his symbol had lost due to “over-marketing”. From this concern, he had an idea for World Smile Day, the day that marks the act of kindness. He said the first Friday in October each year will be celebrated as World Smile Day. Thus, World Smile Day has been held on the first Friday of October every year since 1999.
