Happy World Emoji Day! Today we are celebrating those cute little ideograms of smiley faces (and the ever popular ‘Pile of Poo’), that are being used to liven up or express an idea or emotion, and for many have become the popular was of communicating.
According to emoji history, the first emoji (created by Shigetaka Kurita) made its appearance in Japan in 1999, and was actually a board of designs, not one individual emoji.
So who do we thank for this colorful emotion packed World Emoji Day? That would be entrepreneur Jeremy Burge, creator and founder of Emojipedia in 2014, whose purpose was to promote using emojis as well as spreading the enjoyment they bring to everyone.
Emojis are showing up everywhere, from cookies and cakes, to party decorations and games. If you are not sure how to celebrate this unofficial holiday check out some fun for everyone suggestions below.
