Make your friends and family smile this October 5 on National Do Something Nice Day. This holiday encourages us to perform acts of kindness for strangers or loved ones — or both!
World Smile Day
The first Friday of October is World Smile Day (October 2), a relatively new holiday with a fascinating story. Created by a commercial artist named Harvey Ball, this day came about as a response to his creation, the smiley face.
World Mental Health Day
As our understanding of mental health grows, we grow along with it. Since the early nineties, mental health had come a long way when the World Federation of Mental Health (WFMH) officially established the day.
Children dress up as Batman, the Joker, Wonder Woman, or some other favourite character; go to parties or walk their neighbourhoods with jack o’ lanterns full of sweets as they go trick-or-treating. Stay safe!
