History of World Laughter Day Date

Interestingly, World Laughter Day was first observed in 1998 in Mumbai, India by Dr Madan Kataria, founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement. The first World Laughter Day observance was on May 10, 1998. The celebration was started as a small effort toward spreading positive energy and manifesting peace and happiness worldwide.

The idea of commemorating World Laughter Day by Dr Kataria was inspired to start the Laughter Yoga movement in part by the facial feedback hypothesis, which postulates that a person's facial expressions can have an effect on their emotions. Ever since, this day has helped hundreds of people to get together, join laughter clubs, indulge in laughter exercises or merely just spread some happiness around. We hope that World Laughter Day 2022 fills this world with all the happiness, love, light and laughter we so desperately need. Happy World Laughter Day!
