Finally, we have something to smile about in 2020. The residents of Olten, a small town in Switzerland, woke up on Friday morning (Aug 21, 2020) to find their town dusted in chocolate.

Lindt & Sprüngli has chocolate manufacturing facilities in their town and this includes several furnaces where they roast the cocoa beans that produce chocolate.

Apparently, the ventilation systems malfunctioned and that combined with strong winds covered the town in chocolate.

A Twitter user shared a photo of the chocolate dusting:

I hope that brought a smile to your face, because a recent study concluded that smiles, even forced one, can cause you to feel happier. READ: Smiling more often — even faking it — ‘tricks’ your brain into feeling happy, study finds

But the Bible has been talking about that for years:

A cheerful heart is good medicine,
    but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 22:17)
