“Smile. It’s Friday”

“Smile. It’s Friday” is a Friday saying that has been printed on many images. Friday is often the last work day of the week.
   
“S-M-I-L-E IT’S FRIDAY” was printed in the Globe-Gazette (Mason City, IA) on April 7, 1972. “Smile, It’s Friday !!! (the 13th but Friday!)” was printed in the Detroit (MI) Free Press on May 13, 1977. “Smile It’s Friday T Shirt” was posted on X/Twitter by Southernia Wilson on August 20, 2022.
