About the Holiday

Belly Laugh Day was created by Elaine Helle (a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher) in 2005 to encourage people to laugh even if they don't feel like to. Merriam-Webster.com defines a belly laugh as "a deep hearty laugh". Laughing is actually healthy and good for you as Gaiam Life's article 7 Health Benefits of Laughter explains.

There are many great quotes about laughter. Here are just a few:

  • A day without laughter is a day wasted. Charlie Chaplin
  • Laughter is an instant vacation. Milton Berle
  • From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere. Dr. Seuss
  • The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up. Mark Twain
