International Joke Day

International Joke Day

July 01 2022

Today is International Joke Day! Did you know that there is scientific evidence from numerous studies that proves the emotional, psychological and physical benefits of laughter? It's one of the easiest, most universal ways to boost endorphins and serotonin in the brain, enhancing mood and reducing stress. In fact, joke telling is an art form that has been celebrated and appreciated for thousands of years. During the Renaissance era, people of noble or royal status often had a "fool" or "jester" whose primary role was to tell jokes and offer comedic relief to those they worked for. Today, those who are passionate about comedy and wish to pursue it as a career often attend specialized schools and training programs to build their comedy skills.

So, how can you get in on the fun of observing International Joke Day? Start with a few jokes and send them to friends to brighten their day. Just remember your audience when selecting the jokes! Purchase a kid-friendly joke book for the youngster in your life so they can giggle their way through the afternoon while reading dozens of knee-slapping jokes. Attend a comedy club for an evening of belly-aching laughter with your adult peers. Watch a comedic film at home with a bowl of popcorn and a cozy blanket next to your favorite people or furry companion.
