World Smile Day®
An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day first of October, repeating indefinitely
World Smile Day® was created by Harvey Ball, who claimed to have designed the Smiley Face® in 1963.
In reality though, smiley faces are almost as old as human art.
Harvey was concerned about commercialization of his particular Smiley Face®, so he created World Smile Day® to be celebrated from 1999 on.
Ironically enough, Harvey Ball did grab a lot of the credit for drawing the smiley face.
