Growing weary of all the gloomy news of late, I was pleased when a surprise popped through my letterbox: The Happy News! I had completely forgotten that I had ordered it earlier in the year, so I welcomed its arrival with open arms.
The newspaper, created by Emily Coxhead, was made to “celebrate all that’s good in the world”, a response to the negativity and sadness in much of modern media. In addition to being a source of positive news, it is also beautifully illustrated by Emily herself, and so colourful and cheerful.
People being happy for people who are happy is such a magic thing.

The paper covers a range of news from around the world in a clear, digestible way. You’ll find headings like ‘World’s Oldest Man Credits Cake, Hot Springs and Sumo Wrestling’, and ‘Homeless Helped By Four Year Old Superhero’ – I promise you, you’ll get a warm, fuzzy feeling from almost every one of them. There are also illustrated quotes, recipes, fun facts (did you know that a group of rabbits is called a fluffle?) and advice pages.
It is not only informative, too. Several articles have actually inspired me to make changes in my life to offer a little more to people and the community.
Did you know? The voice of Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger, Jim Cummings, calls children’s hospitals in his spare time to cheer up sick children.
