Everyone knows February 14th is Valentines Day but did you know that February 16th is Do a Grouch a Favor Day? Aha! I didn’t think so! It is one of many weird informal holidays. I like the premise of this holiday. Today is the day to try to cheer someone up!
Whether it is your always grumpy neighbor or just a stranger that you see in the grocery store, take the time today to celebrate Do a Grouch a Favor Day. Doing a favor doesn’t have to mean buying something. It can be as simple as a gesture. People underestimate how much a kind word or a smile can brighten someone’s day. A sympathetic word to the mom in the grocery store whose kid is misbehaving such as “My kids did that too” or a nice genuine compliment to a co-worker can really make someone’s day.
So today, I challenge to try to make someone’s day just a little brighter! Make a little happiness!
