World Emoji Day is an annual unofficial holiday occurring on 17 July, intended to celebrate emoji; in the years since the earliest observance, it has become a popular date to make product or other announcements and releases relating to emoji.
The day encourages us to use emojis to send unique messages. Before the emoji, there were emoticons. Emoticons (emotion + icon) was developed as an expression of emotions in the cold hard texts that were devoid of them.
World Emoji Day was something I created a year into starting Emojipedia. As for why Apple chose July 17 for the generic calendar emoji in the first place, it was mostly an Easter egg, the placeholder date used on Apple products since iCal for Mac was launched on that date in 2003.
