Belly Laugh Day - January 24, 2022


Belly Laugh Day which I have never heard of was started by Elaine Helle in 2005 to celebrate the gift of laughter. 

Laughter is by far one of my favorite things to do and the thing that most attracted me to my husband and to some of my friends and the reason I love spending most of my time with my daughter. She makes me laugh like no one else. 

These days everyone is butt hurt and offended over everything but back in the day, laughter was the best medicine. Now you have to rethink everything because you just may offend someone. This statement may very well offend someone. At 55 I truly think if it does, please move on. It is not your job to school someone on what may be offensive to you. We are all different and thankfully so. Watching standup comedians as a child I realized there were things my parents laughed over that I just didn't get and that may very well be you.  It is very well my own daughter. She hears me laughing at some comedian and comes into my room, stands there and says, "I don't get it." 

Whatever makes you laugh, share it on your socials today. Someone you know may just need to laugh at that very moment! Don't worry if you think it may not be funny to the masses because it will certainly upset someone somewhere. That is the way life is these days. However, remind yourself that the beauty of the internet is we can keep scrolling or if in person walk away. If you are one of those people who feels the need to school someone as to why something isn't funny or may not be funny to others, maybe share something you find funny instead. No one really wants to hear why it isn't funny to you. 

Here are some things that make me laugh:

Benny Hill

I Love Lucy

Silent Movie 

Movie Bloopers

Anna Kendrick
