January 24: Global Belly Laugh Day

Laughter [image credit David Shankbone at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Laughter_2_by_David_Shankbone.jpg]Global Belly Laugh Day encourages people across the world really laugh out loud  on January 24. In fact, the Belly Laugh Bounce Around the World suggests that  at 1:24 p.m. local time you give yourself over to a great big belly laugh, no matter where you are. If people are confused, that’s okay, because they’re sure to start laughing too. Even if you don’t explain it to them, you’ve all had a good laugh (and they’ll probably laugh more later when they tell their friends about the wacko laughing at nothing!).

“Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.””

Genesis 21:6

P.S. January 24 is also Compliment Day, so check out last year’s post and pass out the compliments!
