World Laughter Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of May every year in most large cities worldwide. And to join in on the fun, we have a fantastic collection of funny shirts to get you in the right mood, next to some fun facts about laughter you may not have heard before!
You may be thinking, what is World Laughter Day? Laughter day was created by a family doctor in India, called Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of the Laughter Yoga movement. This type of yoga is based on the facial feedback hypothesis, which says that a person’s facial expressions can affect their emotions.
To celebrate the day, people gather and start the laughter yoga in a big World Laughter Day gathering. Nowadays, you can even find laughter clubs around the world, a terrific way to celebrate.
But you don’t necessarily need to join a club. You can add a touch of fun by wearing funny t-shirts, like this design right here. They will bring out a smile in anyone that sees you.
