Happy Laugh & Get Rich Day, Crossroads!
Let me start off with telling you that today's holiday is not about Get Rich Quick schemes or anything of that nature. I'm sure you've heard of the saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness" and that applies to day. The whole "Get Rich" aspect of today's holiday isn't about material wealth but the wealth of love we have for our closest friends and family...and laughter. So, take some time and enjoy the beautiful day with those whom you cherish most, tell jokes, and laugh with the comfort of knowing no one is judging your bizarre sense of humor. After all, that's why they are your friends because they do get you, and your family has no say because you obviously picked it up from somewhere...
While the origins of today's holiday are unclear, it is known that today is for being happy and having fun. While you could spend money to have fun, try to laugh and have fun while not spending a single penny. Can you do it? Heck, did you know there is a movie called "Laugh and Get Rich"? Its a comedy that came out in 1931 starring Edna May Oliver, Hugh Herbert, and a slew of other great actors and actresses. Find out more about the film by clicking here.
On more health related note, laughing is actually healthy for you. Did you know that? It's true. When you laugh you are burning calories.

Gather friends and family, cue up the (insert preferred method of film watching here) and laugh to your heart's content. To learn more about today's holiday and other ways to celebrate, click here.
