Happiness is Contagious: Pass it on, if You Dare
Happiness is Contagious, Let's Spread it Together
If you had the chance to spread some happiness throughout the world would you take it? That is the question I posed to myself before writing this hub and as you can see, my answer was a resounding yes! Maybe it's because my nickname is "Happiness" and my real name means "joy" but the chance to take part in a free project that can help increase the world's reserve of happiness at a time when most of what we see and hear on the news and TV is laden with misery, was just too good to pass up.
Now here's the deal: Edward Monkton, author of the book, "The Pig of Happiness," has created a four minute film of his book. The video can be viewed and enjoyed by adults, kids and families and has a simple message about happiness. Together we can choose to spread joy, quietly, gently, from person to person until everyone watching this uplifting video is infected.
Or, like Scrooge at Christmas, you can say, "Bah Humbug!" followed by, "I refuse to take part in such nonsense and will have no part in spreading joy!"
If you want to be part of this project, click on the free video, "The Pig of Happiness," and if you like what you see, share it with your family and friends.

Babies Help us Laugh Even in the Worst of Times
Yes, times are tough and some days stress seems to hit us wherever we turn, but even on the worst of days, it's possible to find some humor to alleviate all that tension. This delightful video shows an 8-month-old boy laughing hysterically while at-home daddy rips up a job rejection letter.
