Ever wondered what is it about kids that their mere presence spreads happiness? Yes, you guessed it right! It is their innocent beaming smile. Babies are born with the ability to smile. Kids do not need to know about a person before smiling and that is why they make friends easily. Such is the power of smile. A smile doesn’t cost anything but yet gives so much. A single smile can break tension between strangers, reunite long lost friends, end animosity between rivals.

Ever been in a bad mood and then someone has come along with a huge smile which makes you smile too? A smile from someone can instantly make us forget our worries and bring joy even on the gloomiest day. Smile is infectious, whether you are the one to give or the one to receive.

There is no greater happiness than to be the reason behind someone’s smile. It brings us joy when we can spread smiles all around us. With this motive Harvey Ball, the creator of the ‘Smiley Face’ thought of dedicating one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. He declared the first Friday in October each year as ‘World Smile Day’.

We can celebrate this day in many ways. A smiling “hello”, even a small compliment to someone, helping out strangers, reconnecting with long lost friends, lending an ear to someone in worry and so on can bring smile to someone’s face. There is no end to kind acts which we can do to spread smiles.

So on this day let us all decide to spread joy not just today but all year long by spreading ‘Happy Smiles’….
