We have successfully completed half a year. 2020 is flying by like a shooting star, and here we are at July. It is a long year ahead just like the months that went by. The days that passed have taught us many things and we are going to rock the rest of the months as well. We bring to you the different reasons we should be celebrating each day through this Today column so read on to know why you should.
World Emoji Day
Emojis are the souls of our online conversations. As we switched from phone calls to texts, we have had no ways to emote through the screens. The emoticons although present did not add the necessary emotions to the sentences we uttered. Then, came the creation of emojis as we know them today. The yellow circular smileys are plenty in number now, that any emotion, any sentence could be complemented with a proper emoji. Today celebrates these graphic representations of our emotions. Not to forget it has evolved over the years.
The day is also a sort of tribute to the makers for making our emotional game easier in online conversations.
Celebrating the day is the easiest task. You just need to open your phones or laptops and have some quirky emoji game with your friends. You can simply have a creative brainstorming session thinking of new emojis or using the present emojis in a never been done before way. It would be interesting to post your favorites online and ask others on social media to do so.
Etching something permanent on our skin and keeping them forever on our bodies is an act of bravery. It does take inner courage to play with our skin more than what the needles would cause pain. Tattoos are part of our ancient history and each country had its own ways of interpreting the act of getting inked. It is believed that tattoos have been there for a long time and were prevalent far before then when archaeologists say tattoos became a thing.
The day was coined to know about the history of tattoos along with de-stigmatizing the notion of having tattoos. If you wanted to get a tattoo for yourself, today is the best day to do so. It is the best opportunity to get your favorite design on your skin and brag about it openly.
