Happy had caught a cold and was stuck in bed, feeling a bit glum. Joy and Cheery wanted to do something special to lift their friend’s spirits.

Joy suggested, “Let’s create a get-well surprise for Happy! We can make him smile even when he’s not feeling his best.”

Cheery agreed, “That’s a great idea, Joy! What should we do?” They put their heads together and came up with a plan. Joy painted a cheerful get-well card with bright colors and funny drawings, while Cheery thought of baking Happy’s favorite cookies.

They worked quietly to keep it a surprise, and soon, they had a beautiful card filled with colorful flowers and playful animals. The cookies were warm, sweet, and smelled delicious.
They rushed to Happy’s house, their gifts in hand. When Happy saw them at the door, he was surprised and delighted. “Wow, a get-well card and cookies! You guys are the best!” Happy said with a weak smile.

Joy handed him the card, and Happy read it aloud. “Get well soon, Happy! We’re here to fill your day with joy and cheer.” Cheery added, “And we brought your favorite cookies to make you feel better!”

Happy’s smile grew bigger, and he felt grateful for his thoughtful friends. “Thank you, Joy and Cheery. You’ve made me feel so much better already.” They spent the afternoon together, chatting, laughing, and enjoying the cookies.

Holidays are a time when families and friends come together to have fun and share special moments.

One sunny day, Joy and her friend, Sammy, were talking about an upcoming holiday called “Harmony Day.” It was a day when people from different backgrounds celebrated their unique traditions and cultures.

Joy asked Sammy, “What do you do on Harmony Day, Sammy?” Sammy replied, “On Harmony Day, my family and I make colorful paper lanterns. We hang them up around our house to bring light and happiness.”

Joy thought that sounded interesting. She smiled and said, “That sounds lovely, Sammy. On Harmony Day, my family and I like to make a big pot of soup with all kinds of vegetables. We invite our neighbors to share the meal with us.”

Sammy thought that sounded wonderful too. He smiled and said, “Joy, even though we celebrate Harmony Day in different ways, it’s all about sharing joy and happiness with others, right?” Joy nodded happily. “You’re absolutely right, Sammy! It’s about celebrating our unique traditions and finding joy in them. And when we share them with each other, it makes the day even more special.”

Sammy agreed, “I think learning about how others celebrate can be fun too. It helps us understand and appreciate different cultures and traditions.”

Joy smiled, “Exactly, Sammy! We can find joy in celebrating together, even if it’s different from what we’re used to. It’s like a big, colorful rug made of many threads, and each thread is important and beautiful in its own way.”

Sammy understood and said, “I can’t wait for Harmony Day! I’ll bring some lanterns to share with your family, Joy.”

Joy beamed with happiness. “That would be wonderful, Sammy! Let’s celebrate together and find joy in our unique traditions.”

One bright morning, they heard about a community center that needed help to bring joy to those in need. Joy and Happy knew they had to do something to brighten the day of the people who visited the center.

They put their heads together and came up with a plan. “Let’s organize a Happiness Mission!” Joy exclaimed.

Happy grinned, “That sounds amazing, Joy! What’s our mission?”

Joy explained, “We’ll gather art supplies, puzzles, and board games. Then, we’ll visit the community center and spend time with the people there, playing games, making crafts, and sharing laughter.”

Happy’s eyes sparkled with excitement. “I can’t wait to see the smiles on their faces!” They worked together to collect the supplies they needed and headed to the community center. There, they met people of all ages, from children to seniors, who were looking for some joy in their day.

Joy and Happy started by organizing a craft station. They helped everyone create colorful artwork, which filled the room with laughter and creativity. Then, they moved to the game area, where they played board games and had friendly competitions.

The smiles and laughter in the room were contagious. Happy even told one of his famous jokes, and everyone laughed so hard that their worries seemed to disappear.

As they wrapped up their visit, an elderly woman named Mrs. Miller approached Joy and Happy. She said with a grateful smile, “Thank you both for bringing so much happiness today. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this cheerful.”

Joy replied, “It was our pleasure, Mrs. Miller. Bringing joy to others is what makes us happiest.” Happy added, “And it’s a reminder that even a small act of kindness can brighten someone’s day.”

From that day on, Joy and Happy continued their Happiness Missions, bringing joy and happiness to those in need. Their mission was a reminder that spreading happiness could make the world a brighter place.
