National Compliment Day

24 Jan


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



January 24th, is commemorated as National Compliment Day every year. It is a very special day and celebrated in most parts of the world apart from the USA. This day represents a positive theme – a positive tone in a positive atmosphere – everywhere you are whether it be at home, the grocery market, work or that place the humans feel to punish themselves by what they call “working out”.

Compliments – compliments – compliments – that is what we most do today. Have you ever noticed how someone just brightens up at a compliment, even a complete stranger? Do you notice how much harder you work when you get a compliment? So today, we shall compliment our little hearts out.

So here are some suggestions that can help you today on your National Compliment Day.

Compliment that human that is consistently working out in their hamster ball.

Compliment that human that really has touched you in some point of your life in a good way.

Compliment your spouse. Sometimes you humans don’t express your feelings enough to each other. Maybe if you compliment them, they’ll give you more nuts for the winter.

By all means, compliment your pets. They’re always there for you no matter what, even when you come home upset. They just want to love on you.  They know no hate.

Compliment the guy that cuts you off in traffic this morning. Maybe he won’t hear you but you can smile and wave – with your entire hand not your middle finger – HA!. Maybe instead of uttering fowl language under your breath, think to yourself, “Isn’t he a nice guy for getting in front of me blocking me from any danger.”

Compliment your mother and father – if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t be here. Heck, have your spouse compliment them too. If it wasn’t for them, your spouse wouldn’t have you.

Compliment your pups… I mean children. I’m sure they do something else besides being destructive.

Compliment your teacher. Compliment your bus driver or your chauffeur.

While you’re at it – compliment nature and all of its little creatures, like me 🙂 Hey, you can even throw us some extra feed outside, we won’t say no.

You get the drift. You give out compliments and you give a positive sense of well being. You make someone feel great with just a few words. We all know that words can be so destructive. Let’s turn it around today.

I, Journalist Rocky the Squirrel, challenge you. I challenge you to give out a minimum of FIVE compliments today. I bet you can do more but FIVE is a good start. Are you going to take the challenge?

      PS. Bacon says all your mom has to do is clip your dads cape. I’m not sure what that means.

    There is a fine art to giving compliments but there is also a fine art to receiving them too and sadly to many these days view them with skepticism rather than accepting them for what they are.

    You’re on Rocky. 5 compliments, at least, will be handed out today. Did anyone ever tell you that your pelt is a beautiful shade of red? Do you dye it? That’s called giving a compliment and then hauling it in again…really Rocky love the pelt.
