Why do we celebrate the great gift of laughter?

David J. Pollay creator of The Law of the Garbage Truck™ and author of the forthcoming book, The Law of the Garbage Truck: How to take control of your life with one decision.

"When people follow The Law of the Garbage Truck, they make room for happiness and they increase civility in the world. They also make room for laughter. Laughter makes people happier and healthier. We know it from the research. We also know it feels great. There are few things as gratifying as a good belly laugh. Global Belly Laugh Day is a good reminder for us all to make time to laugh with our children, parents, friends, coworkers, and neighbors."

Nanci Tangeman, author of “Forty Excuses to Get Together with the Girls”
"Laughter is the best renewable energy I can imagine. Light up a room, warm up a conversation…and it’s free."

Holly Henson is a comedian and breast cancer survivor, who turns disaster into laughter in her Tickled Pink standup comedy show, teaching the audience how to make breast implants out of common household items and joking about adding a third breast, that makes cappuccino! She credits the healing power of laughter for her recovery and shares the positive energy in a routine that can make you laugh so hard, your fillings ache!

Milton Berle once said "Laughter is the best vacation." "So if you're at work, it's like you're being paid to sit there and giggle. If that's not worth celebrating, I don't know what is!"

Elaine Helle encourages laughing out loud from now until the January 24, 2010 celebratory Global Belly Laugh Day laugh out loud moment. Laughing out loud boosts immune systems, reduce stress hormones, increases positive energy, connection, creativity, happiness, joy and bliss. On January 24 wake up and exclaim, "It is January 24, Global Belly Laugh Day, yeah!" A start-of-the-day positive mood impacts the entire day. To supercharge laughter on Global Belly Laugh Day, January 24 call and laugh out loud with family, friends and colleagues around the world at 1:24 p.m. their time.
