Laugh and Get Rich Day

February 8 is Laugh and Get Rich Day. A day for enriching your life with happiness.

While the origins of this unofficial holiday are not known, it seems that the unknown creators of the holiday wanted to encourage people to spend the day laughing and being happy.

Happy and Healthy

While being happy won't make you laugh all the way to the bank, it will certainly help improve your mood and your health. Studies have shown that people who are happy and laugh often tend to have less stress, lower blood pressure, and a better immune response. Laughing and sharing jokes can also have social benefits. Happy people tend to have more friends and are easily accepted by social groups.

More Productive

Being happy can also help a person professionally. Joyful workers are more productive and liked by their co-workers compared to cranky and unhappy professionals.

Other happy days to celebrate are Happiness Happens Day, Let's Laugh Day, I Want You to be Happy Day, and International Moment of Laughter Day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Laugh, laugh, and laugh! Tell jokes and solicit jokes from friends and co-workers to put you in the mood to think up of money making ventures.
  • Watch the 1931 American comedy movie, Laugh and Get Rich starring Edna May Oliver and Hugh Herbert with family and friends.

Did You Know…

…that laughing can burn calories? Scientists have found that 15 minutes of laughter can burn as many as 50 calories.






Q: What's a good holiday tip?

A: Never catch snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have gone south for the winter.


I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up ... they have no holidays.


A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.


A Holiday Quiz

“Pretend to be someone you’re 
not, and receive candy.”
Halloween or 
Valentine’s Day?


In fourth grade, my son had a huge crush on a classmate. So for Valentine's Day, he bought her a box of chocolates and took it into school. When I returned home from work, I found him on the couch eating the same box of candy.

"What happened?" I asked.

"Well, I thought about it for a long time," he said between chews. "And I decided that, for now, I still like candy more than girls."




While shopping for a bathroom scale, I found one that tracks not only weight but also body fat, bone mass, and water percentage. I nixed that one in favor of a low-tech model.

As I told the salesperson,

“I don’t need to be depressed four ways; one is quite enough.”
