World Laughter Day 2023: Every year on the first Sunday in May, World Laughter Day is observed in an effort to bring joy to all people. The date of this year’s World Laughter Day is May 7, 2023. This day is observed annually on the first Sunday in May in more than 70 nations.

Laughter is healthy for everyone. It is among the greatest medicines in the world. It improves mood, enhances immune system, lessens discomfort, and guards against the negative effects of stress. According to the study, a person who laughs frequently lives longer, is healthier, and is happier. So, every year, a day called “World Laughter Day” is observed to recognise the value of laughter.

World Laughter Day: History

The first World Laughter Day celebration took place in Mumbai, India, on May 10, 1998. Dr Madan Kataria, who started the global Laughter Yoga movement, organised the day.

The facial feedback hypothesis, which holds that a person’s facial expressions can have an impact on their emotions, served as inspiration for Dr Kataria, an Indian family physician, to launch the Laughter Yoga movement.

Many community organizations—known as “Laughter Clubs”—regularly engage in simple international laughter exercises that support health and general well-being all over the world.
