World Compliment Day

It is a global initiative to create the "Most Positive Day in the World".

What makes World Compliment Day ‘better’ than events like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or Secretaries’ Day, is that there’s no commercial connotation – the only gifts you’re meant to give on this day are compliments, and they’re free.

World Compliment Day is billed as the most positive day in the world. It’s hard to argue, what with all those compliments being passed around. There is an art to it, though. A true compliment must be genuine, or the receiver will see through it. As importantly, the receiver must accept the compliment with a heartfelt “Thank you!”. It’s no good being self-effacing; you’ll wring all the positivity out of the situation, making for a dull Compliment Day.

If done properly though, World Compliment Day is undoubtedly a force for good in this crazy world. Let’s really go for it. Compliment people you’ve never complimented before. Compliment people in the street. Send a wave of positivity around your hometown. Anyone ever tell you you’re wonderful?

March 1st every person pays at least three people in his/her environment or (social) network a genuine and sincere compliment we will definitely create the Most Positive Day in the World!

History
The day started off early in the 21st century in the Netherlands, where this year marks the 11th edition of Compliment Day. Since it’s inception, it has spread to Belgium and Norway, prompting the initiators of the day to re-brand it as an international event, calling it "World Compliment Day".
