Monday, June 1 is “National Say Something Nice Day,” an “unofficial” national holiday, that originated in Charleston, S.C.
Based on the book, “Say Something Nice: Be a Lifter at Work”, the Mayors of Charleston and North Charleston came together with members of the South Carolina Baptist Convention and the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery to create a day to be kind to the special people in our lives.
It is a day to remember and celebrate people who provide us with a variety of services, such as bus drivers, healthcare workers and teachers and a day to remember our children.
It’s a great opportunity to apologize to people that we might have wronged or hurt through our behavior.
The aim of this special day is to fight against unkindness, bullying and the lack of politeness that dominates society today. The creators hope this one day of pleasantness will grow, until people are nice to each other every day.
