12 November is National Chicken Soup for the Soul Day.
Anyone observing Chicken Soup for the Soul day is likely to be in North America although no matter where you live it is an exceptionally heartwarming gift idea. Read on for ideas.
What is Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Generally this now refers to the book written by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen both self help authors. The original book is a collection of stories that really happened to real people. Some are feel good stories, some are funny, some are inspirational but all are designed to touch souls. It extremely difficult to find a copy of the original book for sale, at least at a price most of could afford, luckily the series keeps on being refreshed by the original authors and indeed the 20th Anniversary edition is widely available. It has the benefit of including all the original 101 stories but also adding 20 or more that will keep your heart happy for another 20 years! At least that’s what is printed on the cover.
A Gift for this day?
There is really only one gift for this day and that has to be a copy of the book. The Chicken Soup for the Soul 20th Anniversary Edition Paperback Book is the obvious choice here, and probably the best choice. Saying that, a number of other options directly related to this day such as DVD’s, kitchenwares and clothing to name but a few are available to buy online.
