🌟 We use emojis every day, so why not celebrate them? Welcome to 📅 World Emoji Day!

🙌 Join in the celebration on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok or Facebook using the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay.

🙋 Why July 17?

July 17 is famously displayed on the 📅 Calendar Emoji, which is why we chose it as the date for World Emoji Day.

💡 The calendar emoji date is the reason this July 17 was chosen, but the day is much bigger than just one emoji. World Emoji Day is a celebration of all emojis.
