It's in our nature...

Laughter Facts on Belly Laugh Day:

  • Celtic Symbol Designs: Immortality - the harp representing the soul has three melodies: laughter, slumber, and a sigh.

  • The Symbols Of Pythagoras : Be not addicted to immoderate laughter.

"... this Symbol mentions laughter above all the passions, because this alone is most conspicuous, being, as it were, a certain efflorescence and inflammation of the disposition proceeding as far as to the face... laughter is the peculiarity of man with respect to other animals; and hence he is defined to be a risible animal. It is shown, therefore, by this precept, that we should not firmly adhere to the human nature, but acquire by philosophizing am imitation of divinity to the utmost of our power; and withdrawing ourselves from this peculiarity of man, prefer the rational to the risible in the distinction and difference which we make of him with respect to other animals..." (from Sacred Texts).
