1st of March is World Compliment Day.
The day was created by Hans Poortvliet from the Netherlands. The day was very successful in the Netherlands and in the early 2000’s Poortvliet wanted to take Compliment Day worldwide.
“Mr. Poortvliet urges the compliments and notes of appreciation be in words only, not in gifts. This means that anyone and everyone can afford to take part, because the only thing it costs is a little bit of intention. Unlike commercialized days, this one is completely free and can fit into any budget. ” https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-compliment-day/
Giving people compliments makes people happy, and it a nice thing to do to show your appreciation.
