Happy World Smile Day 2015!

Friday, October 2nd will be World Smile Day so get your pearly whites ready and start practicing. Harvey Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts, who, in 1963, designed the original smiley face logo is credited with creating this special day set aside for happy smiles everywhere.

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 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.
