Laughter is What Makes us Human

Laughter is unique to humans according to Aristotle.
I heard this on a podcast recently. It’s accepted that laughter has healing properties, is infectious (in a good way), and can deepen our relationships when it’s shared. Yet, Aristotle might be wrong that only humans can laugh. We just might not know how to recognize laughter in animals. I’ve seen squirrels playing in the park and, for me, it’s not too big a leap to imagine they can laugh. I think the idea makes our world feel even more magical.
