The history of the holiday is closely connected with the US artist Harvey Ball. In 1963, representatives of the American insurance company State Mutual Life Assurance Company of America approached him with a request to come up with a memorable logo – the company’s business card. The artist almost immediately offered his design, for which he received $50 from the customers. What Harvey Ball offered to representatives of the State Mutual Life Assurance Company of America was what almost any Internet user today would unmistakably call a smiley.
The company produced souvenirs with this logo and distributed them to its employees. The success was so great that after a few months, smiling faces appeared not only on the company’s business cards and badges, but literally everywhere, starting from matchboxes. I also did not stay away from this holiday, as I publish books of riddles for children. I try to write my riddles with humor, so that they evoke only smiles and positive emotions in children. You can see my children’s books here https://booksnt.site/books-for-children/
I recommend them to those who have children under 10-11 years old.
