Bhubaneswar: World Smile Day is being celebrated on October 1 this year. The day is devoted to smiles by encouraging people to act kindly and make others smile.
World Smile Day is celebrated on first Friday in October every year since 1999. The day spreads cheer across the world with a message that smile knows no political, geographic or cultural boundaries.
Significance of World Smile Day:
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts had first created a smiley face in 1963. That smiley graphic picture became the most recognizable symbol of goodwill and good cheer in the world.
With passing of years, Harvey realized that the original meaning of his symbol had lost due to ‘over-commercialization’. Out of that concern, he came up with an idea for World Smile Day, the day that marks act of kindness. He declared the first Friday in October each year would be celebrated as the World Smile Day. Hence, the World Smile Day is being held annually on first Friday in October since 1999.
