When words fail… emojis are there to express your feelings or just give detail and attitude into daily responses.

You may have noticed that the date July 17 is forever on the calendar emoji and wondered why that day of the year was chosen.

Well, on July 17, 2002, Apple launched their calendar app, iCal, and for the first few years of its existence the apps logo constantly read July 17 so that date was picked as the date for the calendar emoji as well.

In honor of World Emoji Day share your favorite emojis with the world and join in the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay!
