When is Compliment Day? This holiday is always observed on January 24

Today is Compliment Day, a January 24 holiday. Today is a great opportunity to say something positive about the people you come into contact with. Everyone has good attributes. …that’s right……. everyone. So, try giving a compliment to everyone you see today. It’s easy….. How nice of you to visit our site today. I can see by your choice of websites, that you are an intelligent person. You are a kind and inquisitive person. I love the way you……

  • It’s a cinch to find compliments for family and loved ones, even for your Mother-in-Law. (Tip: She’s probably a good cook.)

  • Friends are friends because you see something good about them. Here’s an easy compliment to a friend: “Wow, you’re very intelligent…you choose your friends wisely”.

  • Saying something positive about your boss or people you don’t like is a little more difficult. Take up the challenge. We know you can do it!

Remember: Mama said,  “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything”. After a long search for something good, if you just can’t find a compliment for them, then silence is golden.

Compliment Day is celebrated by offering sincere compliments to people you know and meet. You must be sincere. People will see right through insincerity, and you will do more harm than good.

How many compliments should you give out today? The common suggestion is five. Yes, they should be five different people.
