Religion & Spirituality
Angels are thought of as being supernatural spirits or beings that can protect humans. On Be an Angel Day, humans play the role of protector or helper for fellow humans. The day was founded by Reverend Jayne Howard Feldman as a day to do small acts of service for someone and be a blessing in their life. It is a day to selflessly do random acts of kindness and to help others in need.
How to Observe Be an Angel Day
Celebrate the day by doing random acts of kindness and helping others in need without expecting anything in return. You could perhaps help others anonymously, so they really think they are being helped by an angel. There are many things you could do to be like an angel. You could mow someone's lawn, you could pay it forward at a restaurant or coffee shop, you could talk to someone who is sitting alone, you could volunteer at a charity organization, or you could do something else that brightens someone's day.
