Greetings, ATS!

Today is World Smile Day! And since I'm hopelessly addicted to all things smiley, I had to share.

World Smile Day began as a way to celebrate Harvey Ball, the creator of the iconic smiley face. It is always held on the first Friday in October. So now you have a reason to celebrate today!

Now, I'm sure most of you know this, bc I mention it constantly, but I'm a teacher. And my classroom is full of smiley faces. Why? Mirror neurons, my friends.

Mirror neurons are amazing. Have you ever had to talk to a grouchy, scowling person? You probably started to feel grumpy yourself, because mirror neurons act as a mirror to others' feelings and expressions. Which is why it's practically impossible to watch a video of a laughing baby and not begin to laugh yourself.

So celebrate World Smile Day, and spread those smiles!

I have actually been having a pretty good day.
Just thought I would shake things up with some confusing emoticons.

Have a great day everyone...drop a smile if you can.
