  • idk....i do nice things for people because it makes me happy and it makes them happy. i don't really expect anything from it (or for them to do anything afterwards)

  • I think separating it out is nearly as insulting as Mother's Day.

    Either you live a cooperative, community-minded life where helping others is just how you live, or you pick a day and do it that day as a big deal (for a day)... I'm for the former, just as I'd rather have a spontaneously picked bouquet of dandelions from a 4yo than a commercially-made card 'because it's mother's day' from anyone.

  • I love it and do it every day, but it won't hurt to remind me to keep it current.

  • I love the idea. I try to do it as often as I can but making it a recognized holiday may actually boost peoples spirits.
