What's better than a smile?
How about two smiles? Some would say there's plenty to be glum about these days, but to help you grin and bear it, we brought in this pair of hyacinth macaws saying 'cheese' for the camera.
These cheery birds are here to celebrate World Smile Day with us. The observance is Harvey Ball's second-most famous invention – after the famous yellow smiley face, of course. Held the first Friday of October, World Smile Day was founded by Ball as a time to smile, spread good cheer, and perform acts of kindness. Can you make someone smile today?
