About the Holiday

World Laughter Day started in 1998 by Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement, and and his wife Madhuri. He started Laughter Yoga in Mumbai in 1995. Laughter is a common language than can be shared around the world. Your body doesn't know if you're genuinely laughing or fake laughing and it doesn't matter. You get the same physiological biochemical changes. Laughter promotes a healthy life. Laughter can relieve stress, relax muscles and produce endorphins, which help inhibit pain.
