This weekend we’ll all be seeing green. That’s right, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Unfortunately, the holiday falls on a weekend so the Smiley Central office can’t celebrate like we usually do. However, we’re sure that the day will be spent wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage and celebrating just as we would right here at work. St. Patrick’s Day has been celebrated here in the good old US of A since 1737. The first American celebration for the patron saint of Ireland was held in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1766, New York City held the first official St. Patrick’s Day parade. And since everyone likes to pretend they’re Irish on the special holiday, over 100 U.S. cities now boast St. Patty’s Day parades.
To get your crew of hooligans ready for the holiday, Smiley Central has a special surprise, just for you! Share your excitement for St. Patty’s Day with the Smiley Central St. Patrick’s Day iPhone Smileys. No need to paint yourself green, just download the smiley pack and start sharing with your friends from wherever you may be. It’s the perfect way to be festive and fun from your phone. Download the St. Patrick’s Day Smileys and start sending them to all your friends!
An ongoing conversation here at Smiley Central has us thinking about nostalgia. These days, instances of nostalgia are seen everywhere, but nowhere more so than the entertainment industries. Just take a look at this year’s Academy Awards, which aired last Sunday. Nominated movies included Midnight in Paris, which focused on one writer’s desire to live in Paris in the ’20s, and The Artist, which was a throwback to silent films. Some of our favorite television shows these days don’t even take place in the present. Downton Abbey and Mad Men both have a huge fan base. What is it about nostalgia that makes us think everything is cooler in retrospect?
Take The Godfather movies for example. Those dudes in their suits, ties and guns seem so cool, when they were really wreaking some serious havoc on their families and communities. But they just look so awesome when they do it. Now we’re not telling you to go wild, but maybe you could channel a little more of the swagger seen in The Godfather, Mad Men and Downton Abbey to feel more connected with the past. And donning a slick suit or fancy hat never hurt anyone either.

Many thought that the Giants wouldn’t even make it to the playoffs but this past weekend they managed to crush the Atlanta Falcons in their first playoff game! This makes them that much closer to getting another Super Bowl ring! Here at SmileyCentral only some of us are excited about the win!
A couple coworkers decided to watch the game together being that some of us are Giants fans and some are Falcons fans. All of us had been talking all week about stats and who would win the upcoming game. Some were convinced that the Falcons would win some were convinced the Giants would win. Well when the Giants came through with flying colors us Giants fans whipped out our phones and onto Football Smiley Pack. We all chose our favorite look alike Giants smileys then quietly sent it to our Falcons fans and twenty other friends in celebration!
If you have any rivalries coming up this weekend we suggest you go and get the smiley pack for your phone if you don’t have it already! It’s much more polite than doing a victory dance in the middle of the living room!
Hi everyone! We hope you haven’t missed us too much, it’s just that things have been crazy here at Smiley Central and we let the time get away from us. We hope you all have had a wonderful fall and Halloween!! And how is it that Thanksgiving is next week?! The best part about Thanksgiving is that it’s all about eating. No presents to give, no fancy outfits or costumes to wear. Just good food with good people. Am I right? At Smiley Central, we’ve been preparing for Turkey Day in several ways. First, we started by watching several Thanksgiving-themed movies like “Mouse on the Mayflower,” “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” “A Miracle on 34th Street,” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.” We’ve also been practicing by eating copious amounts of food and watching hours upon hours of football… we’re pretty good at that.
The most important thing we’ve done to prepare ourselves for Thanksgiving is by downloading the Thanksgiving Smiley Pack for our iPhones! Whether you’re texting your family about how excited you are to see them, betting your little brother that you can eat more candied yams than him, or just getting into the Thanksgiving spirit, your phone and messages will be super festive with our latest download. You only have 8 days until Thanksgiving, so download the Smiley Pack today and get to messaging everyone you know!
Have you been searching for the perfect way to show your friends how you feel about starting another school year? Well at Smiley Central, we searched high and low in our stock of thousands of smileys to find one that personifies the mix of excitement and fear that accompanies the start of a new year. Without further ado, here’s what we’ve nicknamed the “End of August, Back to School Smiley”:
Isn’t it perfect? Going back to school is definitely scary, especially that moment you realize you forgot EVERYTHING you learned last year! Plus, you have to deal with new teachers, a new schedule and harder classes, tests and papers. There’s also the pressure to plan out your entire life – how can people ask you what you want to be doing in five years if you’re not even sure what you’ll have for lunch?! Of course, not everything about starting school again is terrible. Usually, you head to school with fresh supplies and an even fresher wardrobe. And if they’re going to force you to sit in a building for nine hours a day, at least you get to spend it with your best friends, right? If you’re an athlete, you have the new season to look forward to – we bet it will be your best season yet! Now that you’ve thought about it more, isn’t this smiley perfect? To send it to your friends, just download the Smiley Central App for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and start sharing today! We have a feeling your friends will agree that this Back to School Smiley is the best one out there!
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Doesn’t it feel great to have a short work week? Only four days and then we’re on to the next weekend – awesome! The reason for the shortened week, of course, was the big holiday. Yesterday, the ol’ U. S. of A. celebrated its 235th birthday! A favorite holiday for a lot of us at Smiley Central, the 4th combines all of our favorite things about summer: cookouts, vacations, fireworks and America. What’s your favorite part about the holiday? Honestly, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and relax, like this cool smiley in a hammock. Spending the afternoon swinging in a hammock may be one of the best things in life. All you need is a good book, a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and a spot of shade. Better yet, take your iPhone along to keep you company and you can send this and other summer smileys from the Smiley Central app to all your friends!!
This Sunday is Father’s Day! What are you all getting your dads aside from cards? You should download the Father’s Day inspired smileys pack for iPhone! It’s quite possibly the coolest iPhone pack yet- Pops will love it. We suggest you hurry up and get it, there are only a few days left before the weekend. For all you slackers out there…this is the perfect gift! It requires NO crowded shopping malls and NO breaking the bank!
Let us know what your favorite Father’s Day inspired smiley is and how many you send by commenting on the Smiley Central blog!
Hope everyone is enjoying this fantastic June weather! New York is going to have record breaking temperatures these next few days and we all know what that means: beach time! The team here at Smiley Central is looking forward to heading to Long Beach Island.

Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer, so it’s only appropriate to download the latest pack of summer inspired smileys for iPhone!

Happy Memorial Day weekend and God Bless the USA! Thank you to those who’ve served our wonderful country…your contributions do not go unnoticed.
