World Laughter Day
I came across this poster as I was walking home the other evening, and was instantly intrigued by a day dedicated to laughter. Checking out their website I discovered the event is hosted annually by the local chapter of the Canadian Laughter Club, and is part of more than 2000 of such clubs worldwide.
The unique idea of Laugher Club was discovered in March 1995 by Dr Madan Kataria, Physician from Mumbai (India). His Laughter Yoga website contains all the basic information on the movement.
This Sunday May 7th there will be a gathering under the willow trees at Kits beach starting at 3pm, and at the Bandstand in Queens Park in New Westminster between 1 to 4 pm. Both events are rain or shine. Admission is free with games, music and prizes, face painting, laughter competitions, and “special guests.” Contact Teri McLean for further information at 604-451-1304.
