About International Moment of Laughter Day

When is International Moment of Laughter Day? This holiday is always observed on April 14

 International Moment of Laughter Day is a special day that will put a big smile on your face. The objective of this April 14 holiday is to laugh more frequently and to share a good laugh with others to laugh, and to laugh more often. Make it your goal today to share a whole-hearted belly laugh or two we people you know and love. After all, “laughter is the best medicine”.

We all could use a little more laughter in our lives. A good laugh relaxes us and eases stress levels. You want to be healthier, don’t you? Well, studies show that people who are happy and laugh a lot live longer.

This 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 international day. What’s important is that you bring about laughter (and happiness) to those 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 reaction. Successful participation in this day results in whole-hearted laughter.
