the idea of “The Happy Today”

A Happy Today is basically an excuse to give someone a present under the pretence that you’re very nice. In reality you’re giving a present because let’s face it … giving makes the giver feel good.

You give someone a little present for no reason at all. In fact, it’s kind of a rule that there can’t be an occasion or reason for giving the present at all. Not even nice weather.

I like the idea to give someone something for no reason. The problem with this however is the concept that seems to be part of this day, when people have to return something to someone because they ‘owe them’ in return,

When did we start thinking that we don’t need help or encouragement from others? When did whatever gift we recieved have to be returned in kind…and couldn’t just be accepted?
