The 1st of July was International Joke Day.

It is the day to enjoy a good laugh as the world celebrates International Joke Day!

Held every 1 July, the day is designed to start the second half of the year with a smile and a chuckle.

Although it’s unclear how the day started, it’s believed to have been created back in 1994 by an American author who wanted to sell his joke books.

The idea seems to have caught on and now people share jokes, amusing stories, riddles or poems, funny videos and pictures every year online.
