Celebrate National Thank You Day on October 20, 2009

September 24th, 2009 by Dianne Peña


There are 2 kinds of definition for this word.

A denotative meaning of the word is here.

The connotative meaning, I think, depends on each of us. On the other note, I ask, does it have a meaning if we don’t really “really” use it?

Thank You, for me, is a word (actually, Its a SENTENCE. A complete sentence.) soooo simple that it became an understatement and has lost its sincerest meaning. I am convicted— so to speak for not giving it for the simplest reason that helped me pass through a day.

On the other note, if you use THANK YOU more often, will it lose its meaning as well? Look at its transition as the world evolves…

THANKS… Thanx… Thnx… Tnx… TY..

What can you say???

Well, I honestly will run out of text character (if there’s a limit like Twitter. LOL) just to name each person, each thing, each moment that are making my life in its homeostasis right now.


Headed by Swiss chocolate brand Toblerone, the 2nd National Thank You Day on October 20, 2009 aims to bring people together to honor extraordinary and inspirational people in the Philippines who deserve to be shown the sincerest appreciation.

In coordination, Rep. Rep. Cynthia Villar (Lone District, Las Pinas City) proposed the declaration of the 20th day of October every year as a “National Thank You Day.” Stated in House Bill 5466.

Ironic how we need this “National Thank You Day” just so we can have a “real” reason or purpose for saying the 2 most simple words known to man, THANK YOU. Do we really need it?

Go on… Say it… It can change the world. :]

I said Thank You to a friend one time and he said, “For what?” Well… that made me uncomfortable for saying it. LOL! Maybe its one of the reason why we don’t say it often, we think its OK.
