Say something nice Jan. 24

Mark Twain once said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” With an attitude like that, it’s likely the author would have enjoyed celebrating National Compliment Day.

Held each year on Jan. 24, the day provides an opportunity to praise your friends, family, favorite teacher or neighbor.
