General Events:
International Moment of Laughter Day
April 14, 2015 in the World
International Moment of Laughter Day is celebrated on April 14, 2015. The goal of this day is to get people to laugh, because “laughter is the best medicine”. Moment of Laughter Day was created by Humorologist Izzy Gesell to encourage people to laugh.
Laughing is an involuntary reaction to certain external or internal stimuli. Laughter can arise from such activities as being tickled, or from humorous stories or thoughts. Most commonly, it is considered a visual expression of a number of positive emotional states, such as joy, mirth, happiness, relief, etc.
A link between laughter and healthy function of blood vessels was first reported in 2005 by researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center with the fact that laughter causes the dilatation of the inner lining of blood vessels, the endothelium, and increases blood flow.
Laughter has also been shown to have beneficial effects on various other aspects of biochemistry. For example, laughter has been shown to lead to reductions in stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine. When laughing the brain also releases endorphins that can relieve some physical pain.

Black Day 2015
April 14, 2015 in the World
Black Day is celebrated on April 14, 2015. Black Day is a South Korean informal tradition for single people to get together and eat jajangmyeon (noodles with black bean sauce); sometimes a white sauce is mixed for those who did not celebrate White Day. The idea is that those who did not give or receive gifts on Valentine’s Day (February 14) or White Day (March 14) can get together and eat jajangmyeon, white Korean noodles with black bean sauce, to celebrate their singledom.

Look up at the Sky Day
April 14, 2015 in the World
Look up at the Sky Day takes place on April 14, 2015. The day is a goof opportunity to go outside and see what’s going on above you. Maybe there is an airplane, the shining sun, funny clouds or a meteor on it’s way. You can also try to look for our milky way in the night.
The sky, also known as the celestial dome, commonly refers to everything that lies a certain distance above the surface of Earth, including the atmosphere and the rest of outer space. During daylight, the sky appears to be blue because air scatters blue sunlight more than it scatters red. At night, the sky appears to be a mostly dark surface or region scattered with stars.
During the day, the Sun can be seen in the sky, unless obscured by clouds. In the night sky the moon, planets and stars are visible in the sky. Some of the natural phenomena seen in the sky are clouds, rainbows, and aurorae. Lightning and precipitation can also be seen in the sky during storms. Birds, insects, aircraft, and kites are often considered to fly in the sky.
