HARTFORD – Monday is World Emoji Day.

The July 17th holiday was created three years ago by the founder of ‘Emojipedia’, a website that keeps track of all emojis.

Marking the holiday is a no-brainer– just find a cool emoji and send it to your pals.

You can also use the hashtag “World Emoji Day” on social media.

Emojis were first invented in Japan, but they spread in the U.S. after the first iPhone was released.
