Over the past few years, how we communicate with one another has changed drastically. We no longer write letters in class to communicate with our friends. Now, we can communicate with friends in a much different way — through emojis.
Whether it’s a text, a 140 character Tweet or a comment on Instagram, today’s generation has given up on handwritten notes and is turning to smiley faces and animal emojis to share their thoughts.
And since we all use emojis on the regular, we had to share that this Sunday (July 17th) is actually world emoji day! The day is basically another made-up holiday to celebrate the world’s favourite, ubiquitous graphic icons.
So how can you join in on the fun? You can share what your favourite emojis are on Twitter with the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay. You could also throw an emoji party and ask every guest to dress up as their favourite emoji characters. The Yo Sox team calls dibs on the dancing twins. You can also send emoji-only texts — just avoid replying to any important texts with emojis… like from your boss for example.
Finally, you can rock a pair of our awesome Yo Sox emoji socks. We have crew socks for both men and women featuring the traditional smiley face emojis as well as women’s animal emoji crew socks. These socks are perfect for every emoji lover you know and can be found in our online sock shop!
