National Short Person Day

National Short Person Day is a holiday for people of small stature! While the tall ones may have a few more advantages—they can see what’s happening ahead, and it’s easy to get food from the top shelf—it’s not important. The main thing is to be happy, and joy is not subject to growth.


The facts show that height is not only dependent on genetics, but also on the place of birth. Many low people are concentrated in Nigeria due to poor sanitation, lack of clean water, and not-so-developed medicine. The same is true in India. In Sri Lanka, too much high-calorie food with a lot of calories is to blame, creating a lack of nutrients. The tallest people live in the Netherlands and Latvia.

We don’t know who created National Short Person Day, but we know what they wanted to tell the world: life is multifaceted and amazing, and in order to enjoy it to the fullest, it doesn’t matter what height and physique you have. The most important qualities are in our souls.

Interesting facts

Here are five advantages of being short:

  1. Comfortable and spacious when traveling. Remember how friends complained about the cramped space between the seats—in this position, it’s difficult to travel to distant countries!
  2. A wide choice of clothes—100% of jeans won’t be too short and fit perfectly on the figure.
  3. Less likely to get cancer, according to scientists who published a study in Cancer Causes & Control in 2014.
  4. Fast processing of information by the brain.
  5. Activity, incredible craving for life.
