International Thank You Day - 11th January

 


Every year, people all over the world celebrate International Thank You Day that falls on 11 th January. This celebration is the perfect opportunity to show your gratitude to the people who make your days what they are.

The origins of International Thank You Day are unclear. No one knows who established it and when. There is an theory that greeting card companies promoted this holiday to increase their sales. But this doesn't make the concept of International Thank You Day less appealing.

Celebrate this day by showing your appreciation to all the people who make your life better and more beautiful. One single word can make people around you happier, isn't it great?

Unfortunately, we often forget to express our gratitude to others. We only think about ourselves and don't notice all the things that relatives and friends do for us. Be polite, think of others, and a simple “thank you” will make their day better.

This day is considered to be one of the most polite days. But don't forget to thank all people who deserve it during the rest of the year.

Listen to the following songs!

Merry Christmas to all

Remember the Reindeers – a poem

Hang up the stockings.

Decorate the tree.

Presents placed perfectly.

What a sight to see!

Milk and cookies are out,

Kids are tucked in tight.

There’s so much to do

On Christmas Eve night!

Before you take a snooze

And dream of the next day,

Don’t forget some food

For the friends who pull the sleigh!

You see, reindeers need snacks, too

A little love and fun

To help Santa through the night,

And get the important job done!

-Anonymous


Here is a beautiful Christmas song for you!
