World Laughter Day always on 1st Sunday in May
As you are aware that 1st Sunday of every May is celebrated as a World Laughter Day (WLD). I received the information from various laughter leaders around the world, that this Big Day is being celebrated in many countries like India, USA, Australia, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, UK & Hungary. This year Madhuri and I will be laughing on WLD with nearly 8,000 people at the Town Hall Square in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The usual format of WLD celebration is, gathering of laughter club members and the well wishers at important landmark places of the cities like big squares, stadium, public parks or auditoriums etc. After gathering, a Peace March is undertaken by walking a few kilometres on the important road of the city, carrying banners, placards with slogans of "World Peace through Laughter", "The Whole World is An Extended Family", "Laugh for Life", "Love & Laughter", "Laughter has No Language", "HO, HO,, HA, HA, HA", "Laugh & Make Others Laugh", "Laughter, A Positive Energy", "Join Laughter Club - It's FREE", "I Love to Laugh" (anyone with more ideas about slogans on this day, please send us on our e-mail: ).
During the Peace March, we will chant "Ho, Ho, Ha, Ha, Ha" with clapping and dancing. After walking some distance, the procession stops for a while to do one or two laughter yoga exercises (for example: Milkshake, Mobile, Lion, One Meter, Greeting etc.).
At the end of the Peace March, a big gathering will take place around a stage or platform, from where the Laughter Leaders will conduct a brief 10 minutes laughter session followed by message from Dr. Kataria, to be read out and prayer for World Peace.
