Smurf Day is a holiday that the Smurfs observe every year, which Papa Smurf in " The Magic Egg " calls "the smurfiest day of the year". How the day is observed was usually up to the Smurfs to decide, which could include a parade, fireworks, or even a dance with an orchestra. In their search for eggs, they had come across a magic egg created by Gargamel that allowed whoever tapped on the egg to have their wishes granted. However, the Smurfs got so silly and selfish and un-Smurflike with their wishes that Papa Smurf used it to restore everything to normal before he wished for the magic egg to disappear for good.
The Smurflings are so annoyed when they see the grown-up Smurfs having fun that they are not allowed to have just because they are Smurflings -- even Empath and Smurfette. Tapper , who feels sorry that he cannot allow the Smurflings to share in the same fun as the grown-up Smurfs, tells them that they shouldn't be in a hurry to grow up because someday they will find out that being grown-up isn't all fun and games, and that they should enjoy the time of youth they are given so that they can learn to be wise and patient. But none of the Smurflings feel really convinced that staying as young Smurflings is the best choice for them. One day Papa Smurf is visited by an old friend of his -- Blossom the wise old woodelf, who showed the young Smurfs her power to make things grow and mature. Farmer and Smurfette appreciated her help in restoring weak plants back to health and making young plants grow and mature.
