Gloucester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 01, 2009 -- It may come as no surprise, but a survey undertaken by Prezzybox found the happiest time of the week for the majority of people is Friday at 1pm.
World Smile Day has occurred every Rachelfirst Friday of October for the last ten years. Founder of the day, Harvey Ball created the world-famous yellow smiley face in 1963, which went on to become the face of cheer and goodwill worldwide.
The UKâs leading fun gift and gadget site http://www.Prezzybox.com, in line with the impending day of happiness has surveyed 1,248 people and found that the day people are happiest besides the weekend is Friday, by which time the majority of the weekâs work has been completed.
Prezzybox found that the adage about not liking Mondays holds true, as just 6% of people said Monday was their favourite day of the work week.
The publicâs favourite time of the day is 1pm, when home-time for the majority is drawing near and the bulk of the workday has elapsed â making Friday at 1pm the time people are happiest throughout the working week.
Zak Edwards, the founder of Prezzybox.com is conscious that not everybody is aware of World Smile Day, but hopes the British public can get into the mood,
âWeâre keen to spread the word of World Smile Day throughout the UK, and hope the public will get behind the inspiration of Harvey Ball. Itâll mean different things to different people, but a smile at a stranger you see every day on the tube, or making a cup of coffee for somebody you know would appreciate it whilst youâre up anyway are great examples of ways to embrace the day.
âWith the end of the recession in sight according to various analysts, this would be the perfect time just before the weekend to let our hair down and leave the doom and gloom of the crunch behind us. World Smile Day is simple - do an act of kindness. Help one person smile.â
