Norwegian Maria Øyhaugen started Facebook event calling people to smile to strangers. The event has attracted almost sixty thousand participants in a very short time. The event page wrote as follow:
I and my dear sat and chatted about it that it is almost “forbidden” to smile at strangers nowadays. Have you tried to smile at a random person and got a stupid glance back? People are not used to getting a smile or a “hello” from strangers.
On Monday, April 27, I want everyone to smile to all those you see!
And if someone gives you a stupid gaze or look miserable out back, do not care about it!
“It is better to be the one who smiled than the one who did not smile back”
Who is with me ?
The shares about the smile day is shared on social media platforms with the hashtag of #smiledagen.
