NATIONAL DO SOMETHING NICE DAY
Each year on October 5 people across the nation celebrate National Do Something Nice Day.
National Do Something Nice Day is very similar to National Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is celebrated on February 17.
It would be ideal if everyone lived their lives doing something nice, or doing nice things, on a daily basis and without thinking about it. Today serves as a reminder to us all, as it is easy to get caught up with hectic schedules and fast paced lifestyles, to stop for a moment and do something nice.
“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out”
Frank A. Clark
Do something nice. The “something” can be “anything” from buying a cup of coffee for someone in line at the coffee shop or giving a compliment to the tired clerk to sending flowers with a card that says “just because,” asking the neighbors over for a barbecue in your backyard, or mowing their lawn for them and etc. Post on social media using #DoSomethingNiceDay to encourage others to do so as well.
Within our research, we were unable to find the creator or the origin of National Do Something Nice Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.
