World Smile Day

World Smile Day celebrates the ever popular yellow smiley. It also offers us an opportunity to do an act of kindness. According to the World Smile Day website, a proclamation of this day was made by the U.S. Congress. Now that should put a smiley on your face.
The smiley face became so popular, that the U.S. Post Office issued a stamp with the smiley face.
The intent of World Smile Day is to do an act of kindness, or help one person to smile. Why not do both!?
The yellow smiley stands brightly smiling upon this day, offering it's stamp of approval.

About the Smiley Face:
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. The State Mutual Life Assurance Company hired Harvey as a free lance artist to create a smiley face for use in improving company morale. From there, the bright and cheerful smiley grew in popularity. It's popularity grew slowly at first. Then, it exploded in the 1970's. Ultimately, the smiley became wildly popular.
There is some controversy over the smiley's creation. French entrepreneur named Franklin Loufrani claimed to have invented it in 1968. In 1971 he patented it in 80 countries.

    1. do you really speak Russian??? How exciting! it's very rare i could say, so...i'm glad twice. thank you.
      your blog is so unsual, esp about writing service. as you might see i'm an English teacher in a Russian school and one of the most important aspects of teaching is writing. the main problem is that students can't formulate their ideas correctly.
      by the way, where are you from?
      good luck in your business! it's very unusual and very helpful.

  4. Светлан, все дело в том, что на блогах сразу и не поймешь с каким именно человеком имеешь дело...я живу в Украине....блог сделала на англ, так как у меня немало англ говорящих друзей, мне хотелось, чтобы и они тоже почитали меня + пытаюсь чаще использовать язык, чтобы не забыть
    подумываю сделать зеркальный блог на русском....надеюсь, не разочаровала))

  5. Почему же разочаровала? Ничуть, просто первый раз вижу такой интересный блог - с точки зрения предмета блога - написать поздравления, кроме дизайна открытки.
    А комментариям я очень рада. Так что пишите, если будет желание, на английском было бы тоже неплохо.
