April 14, 2011
When : Always April 14th
International Moment of Laughter Day is a special day that will put a big smile on your face. The objective of this day is to get people to laugh, and to laugh more often. After all, "laughter is the best medicine".
Moment of Laughter Day is also known as National Moment of Laughter Day, and
plain old Moment of Laughter Day.
We don't care whether you celebrate today as a local, national, or
day. What's important is that you bring about laughter (and happiness)
you come in contact with today.
To celebrate this special day, simply tell
jokes or do
funny things that cause people to laugh. A smile is not a good enough
Successful participation in this day results in whole-hearted laughter.
Origin of "Moment of Laughter Day":
Humorologist Izzy Gesell created Moment of Laughter Day to encourage people to laugh.
We found varying dates for this celebration, all in the month of April. But among them, April 14th is the day designated by the creator as International Moment of Laughter Day.The world of hospitality is supposed to be one of making people feel welcome, to enjoy themselves and to often celebrate life. We encourage you to take some time on April 14 or anytime with regularity and take that Moment to Enjoy each other, our guests and all we come in contact with.
