Today, October 20th, should truly be a national holiday. Why, you ask? Because it is the day that one of the most amazing men on this planet was born: John Krasinski.

If you don’t love Jim Halpert, you are very wrong. If you don’t love John Krasinski, you are even more wrong. In fact, I wouldn’t even believe you if you said it to my face. I have never met him (thank God) but he seems pretty damn near perfect. He and Emily Blunt are adorable. He was so heartwarming in Away We Go that the world is still swooning five years later. He is funny, charming and handsome and honestly Ryan Gosling can sit down for a moment because John Krasinski is important too (I still love you Ryan.)

So in honor of his 35th birthday (you look great bb), I decided to round up 35 times that John Krasinski was better than any other person on this whole planet.

You’re welcome.

1. When he smiles and suddenly the sun comes out, even if it is night time
