World Smile Day 2022

7th October, 2022

World Smile Day (October 7), a relatively new holiday with an intriguing backstory, falls on the first Friday of October.

Harvey Ball, a graphic artist and ad man from Worcester, Massachusetts, invented the smiley face symbol in 1963.

The Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation's motto is "Enhancing this world, one smile at a time."

Smiley Face is known as sourire in France, and it is known as a "peace love mark" in Japan.
