Happy World Smile Day 2014!
Yes, it is World Smile Day once again, so go ahead and turn that frown upside down.
World Smile Day was created by Harvey Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts, who, in 1963, designed the original smiley face logo. Since 1963 they have taken over. Anybody else now see those little faces almost everywhere, every day of the year? I could not begin to count how many I see daily in email, Facebook and Twitter.
He thought that we all should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world, regardless of politics, geography and religion.
World Smile Day® is always the first Friday in October each year, people all around the planet perform acts of kindness and help others smile.
Here is a healthy treat from family go that’s sure to put a “smile” on anyone’s face. Even the youngest kiddos can help create these; an excellent cook together.
