NATIONAL SAY SOMETHING NICE DAY

On National Say Something Nice Day we have an opportunity to make June 1st extra pleasant for everyone.

The purpose of this holiday is to counteract bullying and the lack of civility and common courtesy that is growing among people in today’s world.  Hopefully, the practice of saying something nice today will continue onto all tomorrows.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Use #SaySomethingNiceDay to post on social media.

HISTORY

Mayor Keith Summey of North Charleston, South Carolina proclaimed June 1 as Say Something Nice Day in 2006 in recognition of the communication efforts of specialist Dr. Mitch Carnell founder of the day.  Carnell is also the author of Say Something Nice: Be a Lifter at Work. The South Baptist Convention and the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery joined with Carnell to establish the day.
