January 11 can be called, without exaggeration, one of
the most “polite” dates in a year, today is the International Thank You Day.We
all realize the importance of good manners, their necessity in everyday life, but
most of the votes we express, as if by chance, are without thinking about their
meaning. However, the kind words have their own magical power, thus with their
help people could give the pleasure to each other, express the attention and
convey the positive emotions, it is something without which our life would be
scant and gloomy. Indeed, many tourist guides and manuals provide the
information that: the word "thank you", even if it said on another
language, increases the speed, quality of service and help to establish a
peaceful and pleasant stay.
