How Different Countries Laugh Around The World
Have you ever wondered how different countries laugh around the world? We certainly didn’t! It was pretty cool to find out what types of symbols do people from all over the globe use to express laughter. To be honest, we thought that laughing is a universal sign, but when you start to travel around the world and make friends from different cultures, texting with them can be quite tricky.
You know you belong to a Western culture if “hahaha” is your way of ‘smiling’ online, but how about if you use a “5”, or “XaXaXa” to express your joy? What do you make of that? Well, fear no more, because the guys at Latinos Post created a quick guide for beginners on how to laugh all around the world without ever being misunderstood.
