World Laughter Day falls on May 7th this year. It’s a great day to plan to spend some down time with your family or friends and do nothing but...laugh! Whether you’re spending it with your siblings, your children, your spouse or even a group of friends, it’s a great opportunity to take the day to bond and create even more happy memories.

Spending positive time together as a family will help create stronger ties and deeper relationships with each other. If you have children, it’s important to try to set aside regular time to reconnect as a family. Ensuring you provide your children with a safe and happy place will also help set the path for them to confide in you and feel comfortable talking to you about important topics or situations. We wanted to share five simple ways you can connect with each other and celebrate World Laughter Day as a family or a group of friends. Enjoy!
