World Laughter DayThis Sunday, the 7th of May is World Laughter Day which originated in Mumbai in 1998. It was arranged by Dr. Madan Kataria who also founded Laughter Yoga.

Laughter, even when forced, is said to have a number of health benefits, both physically and mentally. There are a number of Laughter Yoga events going on this World Laughter Day, from Devon to Gateshead.

If you can’t make it to one of these events, and forcing laughter seems a little weird for you, here are some of our favourite jokes for you to share:
