Spread Good Vibes on National Compliment Day

First called into existence by Debby Hoffman and Kathy Chamberlin in 1998, this unofficial holiday encourages people to spread good vibes.

The message of National Compliment Day is clear: Go and see someone you love and give them a compliment. We all need more positivity in our daily lives and this is a great way to get started.
