There are all sorts of laughs. Start with a little tehee while reading the comics in the morning paper. When you pick up your cell phone and go on the internet, look for the jokes and humor on your favorite social media site for a few LOLs. Then, move on to the chuckles, hahas, hohos, giggles, hearty roars, and those deep and resonating belly laughs.

The Benefits of Laughter
Forget about the old saying “An Apple a day keeps the doctor away”. If you want to be healthier, we encourage you to enjoy the many benefits of laughter. Laugh heartily every day and many times a day. They say “Laughter is the best medicine”. There is plenty of truth to this statement. Medical studies have shown that laughter lowers the level of the stress hormone cortisol in your body, which reduces stress. Laughter lowers blood pressure, increases the immune system, and increases your heart rate. It lightens your mood and makes you happier. Laughter is also proven to help you sleep. It takes energy to laugh, burning calories. These should be enough reasons to cause you to laugh as often as you possibly can.

History and Origin of Let's Laugh Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day or any other information about its origin. It appears to have been created in 2017 or possibly a year or two earlier.
This holiday clearly began as Let’s Laugh Day. Somewhere around 2019 or so, a few websites began to incorrectly call it National Let’s Laugh Day. We found no documentation in congressional records to confirm that this is truly a national day. Nor, did we find a presidential proclamation.
