Happy Birthday Esther!
Esther Earl is the inspiration to John Green’s novel The Fault In Our Stars. Esther was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 12 and passed away after her 16th birthday. The book is currently #1 on USA Today’s Best-Selling List. It was then turned into a movie. The Fault In Our Stars (2014) has reached a total of $2.56 million dollars in the box office worldwide.
Esther Day “is about telling the people you love that you love them, even when it’s difficult to do so — in fact, especially when it’s difficult to do so. We have a holiday for romantic love, but love isn’t just about romance, so that’s why Esther created Esther Day.” says Green in USA Today Book Buzz.
To celebrate Esther Day, post a hand-heart photo (like below) to social media and tag #estherday. Then tell a friend or family member that you love them.
