Shrill or funny, giggly or bubbly, on this day, let out your laughter and laugh to your heart’s content.

On this day, people gather in public places to laugh together and spread joy and positivity. Laughter yoga sessions are organized in many places around the world, where participants engage in laughter exercises and games to promote laughter and joy. Play for Peace also works to spread laughter, which helps us get through difficult times in life, whether we are facing pain, disease, sorrow, loneliness, disappointment, annoyance, or anger. It can also be a way to connect you with someone deeply in a way that goes beyond words.

Shrill or funny, giggly or bubbly, on this day, let out your laughter and laugh to your heart’s content. As Shakespeare said, “With mirth and laughter, let old wrinkles come.” This day is also used to raise awareness about the importance of laughter and its positive impact on mental and physical health. Many organizations and individuals take this opportunity to raise funds for various charitable causes related to health and well-being.

Let's come together to celebrate the healing power of laughter and spread joy and positivity in our communities.

    When Play for Peace's development officer visited our club at a refugee camp in Musselkanaal, Holland, she met with a very special mentor named Roel. Not only has he supported Play for Peace and brought it to the camp, but he’s done it with laughter and compassion that is contagious.
