TODAY IS—World Smile Day! This day was created by Harvey Ball, who also created the smiley face; arguably the first emoji. Concerned about the commercialization of the smile, Ball created a day to focus on spreading joy and love to everyone. He passed away in 2001, but his legacy lives on through the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation, which carries on his message of peace and love. To celebrate today, brighten the world with a smile.
