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?

    I’m only going to see one person today so I guess I’ll have to compliment her five times. 🙂 This could be interesting.

    Sam happily accepted and ignored all of 87 of my ‘compliments’ {get over here, you boneheaded mutt being repeated many times while he was dallying in 25 degree freezing weather this morning and I was freezing} Does that count? 😉

    Here are a couple for YOU, Rocky:

    1. You are so CUTE! I think you prob’ly have some relatives living here where Mom & I do, btw, but I’m not positive (they always disappear whenever I come out to play, so I’ve never gotten a really close look at them).

    2. You do a great job keeping your eye on the nuts of the world – and I, for one, really appreciate it (especially with what’s going on in America NOW)

    Woof! TINK

      Oh my… you are so sweet dear friend. Thank you so much. And you know what, we appreciate YOU so very much as well – Rocky
      P.S. Bacon asks if you have sent him his email yet. Not sure what the oinker is speaking about.

        Tell Bacon thanks for the reminder.

        I gave it to Mom – she probably spaced out and didn’t turn it into the kind of doc she could attach or something — I wrote it in a notepad — TextEdit (.rtf ).

        She’s ADD, you know – if it weren’t for me I think some days she’s forget to blink!

        I’ll get her on it today – she can at least cut and paste .txt into an email and hit send, even if she can’t get that MSWord thing together.

        Snorts with piggy laughter. I know how mom’s are sweet friend – I have one too. Shaking my head. You just don’t want to know. Some days I don’t know how she functions without this oinker – snorts! Wanted to make sure we didn’t miss it. XOXO – Bacon
