Today is Optimist Day

February 2 is Optimist Day Graphic
Originally, Optimist Day was intended to replace April Fool’s Day.

Focusing on looking at the bright side and remaining hopeful might be a better way to spend the day than falling for stupid pranks, but sadly, April Fool’s Day wouldn’t budge, so in 2013, February 2 was proposed as the permanent celebration to mark the trait of optimism. If you’re a half glass full kind of person, you may enjoy better physical and mental health as a result. Not sure how to stay optimistic? Your local Optimist International club might be able to help!

To celebrate Optimist Day, we’ve selected three books with an optimist main character.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
