Chicken Soup for the Soul Day

National Chicken Soup for the Soul Day is celebrated on November 12 in America. The date aims to extract feelings, negative emotions, anxiety from the most hidden places of the soul, to pull out of the darkness and shed light even through the heaviest black clouds. The Chicken Soup for the Soul Day book series has been released to help everyone in need! After all, sometimes it’s so difficult to get out of a depressing state on your own …


We are sure that National Day caused a feeling of hunger, but as you already understood, it is not dedicated to a warming delicious dish. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen created not just books, but real manuals on how to solve problems and finally become happy. Can every person do it? Definitely YES!

An interesting and unusual name was not invented momentarily. The creators spent a long time thinking and meditating. Jack ended up thinking about the chicken soup his grandmother used to make. He drew a simple parallel: if the soup cures a person with a physical illness, then it will also cure a psychological one.

The first edition came out in 1990. It described stories from the life of ordinary people who lived their hard time. All this is inspiring, because they coped with everything that destroyed them, which means that others will succeed too! Today there are more than 250 books on the subject. They also describe the stories of readers who decided to change their lives.
