Enjoy National Let’s Laugh Day With Old Town Pizzeria!
A day that you may not have heard of but should be celebrated by all is National Let’s Laugh Day. On March 19th it’s time to get together with friends and family to tell jokes and share a laugh. Here are some other activities and ways you can take part in this special occasion.
History of Laugh Day
First, let’s take a look at how Laugh Day came about. Jokes have always been the easiest way to share a laugh. The oldest joke can be dated back to about 1900 B.C. Aristophanes was one of the first comics and created his comedy using political satire. Stand-up comedy took off in the 1930s and became a regular source of entertainment. It was most popular in New York, especially the Catskill Mountains. The famous laugh track you hear during your favorite tv show was then invented in the 1950s by Charles Douglass.
Benefits of Laughing
Laughter has many benefits to your mind and body, it’s no wonder why laughter is called the best medicine. The Mayo Clinic determined that laughter can stimulate your organs and enhance your intake of the oxygen-rich air. It can also stimulate your heart, lungs, muscles, and endorphins that are released by your brain. Frowning is also known to cause wrinkles but laughing more can solve that problem. Laugh Yoga has become a popular activity that uses laughter as an exercise for the muscles in your face, abdomen, and lungs.
Why Should We Celebrate?
One major reason to celebrate Laugh Day is to eliminate stress. Laughter helps release endorphins that lower the stress hormone cortisol in our bodies. Laugh Day was created to help raise awareness on how laughter provides positive effects on our minds and body. If you want to improve your general well-being, celebrating Laugh Day is a great way to start.
Laugh Day Activities
There are many ways to take part in this special day. You can choose comedy movies to watch with your loved ones and enjoy some candy that includes jokes on the wrappers. If you want to get out of the house you can even visit your favorite local restaurant. Getting a bite to eat and sharing jokes and laughs around the table will put a smile on everyone’s face.
