Don’t Worry – Be Happy!

smiley faceSmile – You’re in France!

Today (17 mai) is the “Journée de la Joie”! – a sort of “don’t worry, be happy” day, no matter what happens.  Culturally, the French don’t  smile at someone they don’t know, so I find this amusing in context.

Don’t worry, I am happy and smiling as I write this! 🙂

    Love this one Kim…we are in Amalfi! Know it has been raining, here some too, though not heavily. Hope the sun shines on you this weekend. It is coming out here. Ciao. Sandy

  4. Thanks – Enjoy your time there, Sandy – yes, weather has been a little un-seasonal today.

    I hadn’t heard of this holiday, but I love the concept! En fait, j’irai le feter aujourd’hui chez moi!

  6. C’est tres drole! Gardez le sourire. (It’s very funny. Keep smiling!)

  7. What a great video and how very “unFrench”!! I have never heard of le jour de joie but I shall make a note of it in my diary and try to be in France next May to see how it manifests itself on the streets of Brittany!!

  8. This video reminded me of the time I smiled at an older lady in Paris because her dog was cute (who I smiled at first) – the lady looked at me like I had two heads!
