Dimples are not too common. Only 20- 30 % of people around the world have them. Scientists disagree whether they are genetic, a birth defect, or just a random occurrence. They are a natural indentation of the skin. They are formed by a defect or variation in the zygomaticus major muscle. This muscle controls facial expression. Cheek dimples are the most common and are visible when smiling.
People who have them usually have two, one on each side of the face. In rare occurrences, it is on just one side of the face. They also may appear in the corners of the mouth. Some people have a dimple or chin cleft. And, they can occur on the lower back. They are called “Dimples of Venus”. Venus is the Roman goddess of beauty, love, and sexual desire. Women who have this are considered very beautiful. For men with them on their lower back, it is called “Dimples of Apollo”. Apollo is the ancient Roman sun god.

History and Origin of National Dimples Day
Graceful Grady from Atlanta, GA. is the founder and Chief Dimples Officer of National Dimples Day LLC. This fun-filled holiday was created in 2022. After hearing about all kinds of daily holidays in the media and from friends, Grady searched the internet for a holiday to celebrate dimples. Unable to find one, Grady created this fun holiday.
According to their website, the goal of this holiday is to “spread the word and celebrate globally the rarity”. In that sense, we are surprised this day is not called World Dimples Day.
Graceful Grady selected July 9 “because I wanted a day where we didn’t have to share it with multiple holidays, I definitely wanted it doing the summer but after the 4th of July and before Labor Day, and a day where all dimples can be displayed…including Dimples of Venus and Dimples of Apollo. July 9th was perfect.
