This Day in Pop Culture for July 17

Emoji Day is Born
Because everything has to have its own “day,” emoji’s got their’s on this day in 2014. This sudo holiday was created by Jeremy Burge the founder of Emojipedia, an emoji reference website. At the time, he had no activity plans for the day, but some has suggested that people only communicate using the icons throughout the day. In 2015, Pepsi celebrated the day with specially-marked Pepsi cans and bottles. In 2016, Sony Pictures Animation used the day to promote their upcoming The Emoji Movie (which was released in 2017), Google released a new series of emojis that were more inclusive to women from diverse backgrounds and Emojipedia created the first World Emoji Awards. In 2017, London’s Royal Opera House presented 20 operas and ballets in emoji form. Not to be outdone, this year Kim Kardashian has released three new “Kimoji” fragrances.


Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955
Opening Day at Disneyland
While it may be considered to be the happiest place on earth and Disney always presents a class act, Disneyland’s opening day, held on this day in 1955, was a little less magical than originally planned. Forever known as “Black Sunday,” the park was open to the public AND filmed live for ABC TV. A variety of technical glitches happened that day. Famous people who were scheduled to show every two hours, ended up showing up all at once. The drinking fountains didn’t work due to a plumbers’ strike which made people think that it was a stunt to get them to buy more Pepsi. Vendors ran out of food. Asphalt that had been poured that morning was still soft causing some ladies to get their heels stuck. There was a gas leak causing part of the park to shut down for the afternoon and parents would toss their children over the crowd’s shoulders to get them onto some of the rides.
