(WBNG) -- Monday is world emoji day.
To mark the holiday- just find a cool emoji and send it to your friends.
The July 17 holiday was created three years ago by the founder of "emojipedia," a website that keeps track of all emojis.
You can also use the hash tag "#worldemojiday" to share on social media.
Emojis were first invented in Japan, but they spread to the United States after the first i Phone was released.
