September 24 - National Bluebird of Happiness Day
Today is National Bluebird of Happiness Day. Sing out about the joys of life.
The bluebird became the symbol of happiness after a writer named Maurice Maeterlinck wrote a play called 'The Blue Bird' in 1908.
The author received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1911. The Blue Bird was considered one of his greatest achievements. The Betrothal is a little-known sequel to The Blue Bird. The path that Tyltyl, a fearless searcher for good, walks in the two stories is the way all men must go as they fulfill their destiny.
