It is Pay A Compliment Day. How will you celebrate?

Today, The Morning Thing shared the good news that today, 2/6/23 is Pay A Compliment Day.

This day was started in 1995 by a lady named, Adrienne Koopersmith. She was riding a bus in Chicago and saw the drive be kind to someone who was cold and wanted to get on the bus. This person wasn’t at a bus stop, but the driver stopped anyway. Adrienne wanted to compliment him for this act of kindness. She realized that sharing a compliment for him actually made her day better.

It’s International Compliment Day and on the Morning Thing and Cameron and Christa spent the morning complimenting each other and talking about the best compliments that you can give or receive.

They also shared some unique and creative compliment ideas and, since this holiday is international, after all, they talked about some compliments in other languages that might not translate so well.

The Impossible Trivia Question was about the lesser known monotreme (mammals that lay eggs) the echidna or spiny anteater. Congrats to Cameron from Utica for getting this one right!
