Chicken Soup for the Soul Day

National Chicken Soup for the Soul Day is celebrated on November 12th in America. This day serves to help bring out the feelings, negative emotions, and anxieties from the depths of the soul, and to bring light even to the darkest of clouds. The Chicken Soup for the Soul book series has been released to aid those in need, as it can be difficult to escape a depressing state alone.


The National Day name may have caused hunger, but it is not dedicated to a warming dish. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen created books to serve as guides on how to overcome and be happy. Canfield thought of his grandmother’s chicken soup and the parallel idea that it can cure physical and psychological illnesses. The first edition released in 1990 featured stories of ordinary people who faced difficult times, inspiring readers that they too can overcome. There are now over 250 books in the series, featuring readers’ stories of changing their lives.

Interesting facts
