The Amazing Story Behind World Smile Day
There is a fascinating story behind World Smile Day, an annual holiday celebrated on the first Friday of October.
The iconic smiley face created by Harvey Ball inspired the creation of this day. It was Harvey’s concern that commercialization would diminish the symbol’s impact. There’s no way we can blame him for his opinion; the image has been used on clothing, pins, cushions, comic books and coffee mugs among many other things. There’s something powerful about smiling, and these simple little yellow faces are a symbol of that.
