What Is JoyGerm Day And How Is This Comic Related

I know what you’re thinking, what the hell is National JoyGerm Day? Is it a happy thing? Is it a germ thing? Why is this a National day? And yea, there has been some pretty weird national days, but I promise you, this isn’t the weirdest. 

Well, you know that old saying “you should smile because it’s contagious”? Yes, that’s the idea behind calling it “joy germ”. Because germs and other pathogens spread from person to person so readily. So it seemed a good idea that happiness should also be highly infectious.

The day was thought of and created in 1981 by Joan White who has the first JoyGerm Day on her mother’s birthday, as it was her energy that inspired White to have the day to honor her.

So in celebration of this day, I will help spread this JoyGerm by doing a good deed of kindness. Yes, this is true, I will do ONE act of kindness for my NNS readers and that’s it. Nobody ask me for anything else cuz that’s all I got! I will give you my very bias favorite all ages comics to help inspire the young minds of tomorrow, TODAY! That’s right, comics for the little ones. So here they are in no particular order.
