Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Today is National Let's Laugh Day.  

The day is observed annually around the world on March 19 according to National Day Calendar.com  

We have all heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine." Well, some studies have shown laughter can actually aid muscle relaxation, improve the immune system and even relieve pain. There's a reason people say "I could use a laugh." 

Chuckling has inspired famous quotes, movies, TV shows and books. 

"Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand." — Mark Twain

"If you would not be laughed at, be the first to laugh at yourself." — Benjamin Franklin

Some might agree laughter is even contagious - so don’t forget to take a moment and laugh today.
