National JoyGerm Day

National JoyGerm Day offers just to be happy and give joy to others! This is one of the most positive days of the year. Passes on January 8 during colds and winter illnesses – that’s why it’s important to celebrate it by changing negative microbes to positive ones!


Joan White of Syracuse founded National Day in 1981. She lived in the state of New York and worked as an advertising specialist. This played a significant role for the holiday – the woman knew how to colorfully present information, people reached out to her, becoming interested in the date. National JoyGerm Day was first celebrated on her mother’s birthday. White admitted that her mother inspired new victories and achievements.

The main purpose of the holiday is clear, but there is one more – to honor a single woman who popularized an interesting National Day in the name of good. Her positivity and incredible energy can be envied. When things don’t work out, remember White and mark the date on any day of the year.
