It’s almost International Joke Day and we love this day for one reason. It’s an easy way to bring laughter to another’s person’s life that just may need a big D.O.S.E of Happy.
Think back to one of those moments in your life when you laughed so hard it hurt or a tough day that turned around in just moments after hearing a really good joke, watching a funny YouTube video or favourite comedy show that had you splitting at the seams.
