Fun Holiday – Say Something Nice Day

On June 1, be kind to everyone you meet and say something nice to them because it is Say Something Nice Day. The day aims to encourage people to spread cheer and goodwill by opening up channels of communication and by focusing on the good in everyone.

Also known as National Say Something Nice Day, this unofficial holiday is said to have originated in Charleston, South Carolina. According to some, the originators of the holiday were inspired by Mitchell Carnell's book, Say Something Nice - Be a Lifter @ Work. The book inspires people to be lifters. A lifter is someone who is positive and always says something nice to whoever they meet. The book inspires people to lift others up, not put them down.

Spread Happiness

The message of the day is that positivity goes a long way in spreading happiness and joy. When we are kind in our interactions with others, we receive positivity and kindness back. This enriches our lives, makes us happy, and keeps us healthy. Studies have shown that happy people are healthier and live longer.

How to Celebrate?

  • Celebrate the day by saying something nice to everyone you meet. Remember, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
  • Put aside your petty enmities with people and use this day to try and see the positive in people you usually do not like.
  • Leave a nice note or do something nice for a friend, family member, or co-worker.
  • Bottom line: just be nice to friends, foes, and strangers alike, and you will notice that you feel much better about yourself!

Did You Know...

...that the saying "if you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all," is often known as Thumper's Law or the Thumperian Principle? Thumper is a fictional rabbit character from Disney's animated movie Bambi.
