🎂😊 In 2021, World Emoji Day occurs on July 17
Nowadays, pictorial communication is increasingly important. We live in a world where almost all events can be described/commented with memes. Emoticons or emoticons are a similar example of graphic communication that is extremely common and has permeated everyday life. These distinctive smile, heart or animal icons even have their own holiday, which falls on July 17. Emoticons are used to highlight our emotions, but also to embellish a statement. A smiley face, a grimace, a kiss, a strained bicep, a rose, a pizza, a dog or hundreds of other images called emojis have become popular with the rise of cell phones, the Internet and social networking sites. Text communication is playing an increasingly important role in our world, so it's no wonder that someone came up with the idea to establish World Emoji Day.
The holiday was created as a result of Jeremy Burge's initiative in 2014. People from all over the world consciously paste a mass of emoticons on this day, often using the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay in posts on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. World Emoi Day is also an opportunity to present special awards, Internet users decide on the best new emoji, the most anticipated emoticon, or indicate the emoticon of the year. The whole event takes place in a very prestigious place, which is certainly the New York Stock Exchange - the largest stock exchange in the world.
