World Emoji Day - It’s a Thing!

Have you ever noticed the date on the calendar emoji? Yeah … me neither! Turns out, the date on the calendar emoji is July 17th, and that is the official date of World Emoji Day!  According to WorldEmojiDay.com, July 17th is the date that iCal was first announced at MacWorld in 2002 and in 2014, the founder of Emojipedia created World Emoji Day based on that event. Emojipedia oversees World Emoji Day and is the source of official emoji definitions, emoji changes, and is the first to announce new emojis. This year is the tenth annual global celebration of World Emoji Day! Use the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay to join in the celebration.

Emoji Puzzle

The word emoji comes from Japanese e (picture) + moji (character). However, it is merely a coincidence that the word emoji is so close to the English words emotion and emoticon

Emojis are so popular that the Oxford Dictionary named the Face with Tears of Joy emoji the Word of the Year in 2015!!

Emojis even have stats to back them up. In 2017, a large-scale study of emoji usage found that Face with Tears of Joy was the most popular emoji, Heart was second, and Heart Eyes was third. The study also found that people in some countries such as Australia, France, and the Czech Republic use more happy emojis, while people in other countries like Colombia, Chile, and Argentina use more negative emojis.
