World Emoji Day

 Happy World Emoji!

Do you know why we celebrate World Emoji Day on July 17th?

It's because on the original calendar emoji, the date shown was July 17th! This is what I get when I search for a calendar emoji:

But the typical calendar emoji we can insert easily is more vague: ๐Ÿ“†

If I had to pick a favorite emoji, it would probably be ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

In my youth, I spent a lot of time in chat rooms (I'm showing my middle-age) and we used emojis before they actually existed. >:-) was my favorite then, and that has continued into adult-hood. But now that we have the pineapple๐Ÿ, it might take the favorite slot for me now. My husband and I used it so much that he named me Pineapple in his phone and all of our rooms have pineapples everywhere!
