Photo Challenge # 22: Art Project

Hello, everybody!Today is the first Friday of October. So, CONGRATULATIONS on International Smile Day! This artwork was deliberately made for this amazing day of the year! It’s one of my favourite holidays!World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday of October every year. The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from the USA. He also created the Smiley Face in 1963. The World's first World Smile Day was held in 1999 and has been held annually since.A smile is cheer from you to me,the cost is nothing its given for free.They console the weary and gladden the sad.And can make someone happy when they are mad.Unlike blessings in which we prayit's the only thing you keep when you give it away.

  • Smile should in every day .

  • @Rajesh!

    LOL I completely agree with you that almost each day of the calender has its holiday! But these two (Smile Day and Laughter Day) are unique and important as they give us positive energy and unite the people from different countries!

    There's a tradition in our school to celebrate Smile Day in September. These are my students on this day:


  • Hello, Ehab!

    Thanks for the nice wishes and keep smiling!


  • Hi, Grace!

    I'm so glad you like our Russian nature. In autumn it really looks so colourful, even magic!


  • LOL! If we start finding then it seems even a single date of calender will not go without any celebration.

    Thank you for finding and sharing the information, teacher Galina. :) I love the idea of "positive manifestation for world peace and is intended to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship". Hope to have more and more laughter clubs around us!

  • Indeed, I thought they are part of her hair. :D

    The plant bulrush isn't edible, yet it still looks unique around the lake. The view of the photo is simply fantastic. Could you find such beautiful scene easily near your place? 

  • Hello Galina

    Happy new International Smile Day! 

    It is good for all of us to smile


  • @Rajesh

    You know I myself like her haircut. LOL It's made of the plant called bulrush. It can be of two kinds: the plaits are made of one kind and the hair of another. I still have a bunch of it at my balcony.

    Thanks for the comment!

  • Hi, Rajesh!

    Of course, we have "Laughter Day"! As for Russia, we celebrate it on the 1st of April during April Fool's Day. I've checked Wikipedia and found out that World Laughter Day takes place on the first Sunday of May of every  year .The first celebration was on January 11, 1998, inMumbai, India  and was arranged by Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement.

    Laughter Yoga says: Laughter is a positive and powerful emotion that has all the ingredients required for individuals to master themselves and to change the world in a tubular way. The day is now celebrated worldwide.

    The celebration of World Laughter Day is a positive manifestation for world peace and is intended to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter. Its popularity has grown with that of the Laughter Yoga movement now counting thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 72 countries.

    Wow! I like the idea of Laughter Clubs! I'd like to join it!

  • Galina, yeah ... I saw that mushrooms. How I wish I can cook it. My favourite is stir fry mushroom and add some sweet peas and broccoli. :)
