Hey Moji Maniacs! 

Today's Emoji-A-Day post is lifting up two special occasions - National Kite-Flying Day and Fat Thursday! And as usual, we are combining them to create a more mojified and magical experience - just for you! 🪄

Let's Get the Party Started! 🥳
Think of a field of you and your people gathered, chatting and laughing, full of colorful kites dancing in the wind. In one hand, a warm, fluffy pączki sits, ready to melt in your mouth, while the other holds the string guiding your kite towards the bright blue sky. The air holds a sweetness of fresh cut grass and blends with the thrill of people, flight and the music blasting from speakers blasting the Spotify custom playlist, creating a sensory symphony that celebrates life's simple joys. 🎉

Life. Is. Good. 😎

Here's why kites and Fat Thursday are a match made in Moji heaven:

  • Soaring Dreams -  Let your imagination soar, like a dream, with a unique kite design inspired by Fat Thursday's rich flavors and textures. 🌈
  • Global Unity - Kites originated in China and have connected cultures for centuries. Celebrate this shared heritage by flying a kite and indulging in a global treat like a pączki 🪁🍩🫓
  • Science & Indulgence - Don't underestimate the science behind a kite! Remember Benjamin Franklin's experiment? Be curious, explore and just have fun. 🥼 🥳
  • Creative Inspiration - Decorate your kite with sprinkles, ribbons, or even edible glitter, making it a personal masterpiece. Enjoy your artistry! 👩‍🎨👨‍🎨


      • Longest Kite - Ever wonder how high your kite could fly? The record-breaker measured a whopping 3,394 feet, taller than the Empire State Building! 🏢
      • Electric Spark - Did you know Benjamin Franklin used a kite (and a key!) to prove lightning was electrical? Talk about a shocking discovery! 🗝️⚡️
      • Global Gliders - Kites originated in China over 2,000 years ago, making them one of the oldest flying objects in history! 📜
      • The longest recorded kite flight lasted 180 hours straight, that's over a week! ⏳ 
      • The record for most kites flown on a single line belongs to Japan, with a jaw-dropping 11,284 kites! 🪁 
      • High-Flying Hero - The fastest kite ever recorded reached a speed of 120 mph – that's faster than a cheetah (up to 100 mph) or a tiger (40-50 mph)! 🐅
      • Novel Inspiration - Khaled Hosseini's bestselling novel "The Kite Runner" is a beautiful story set in Afghanistan, where kite flying is a cherished tradition. 📕
      • Fat Thursday Feast - Paczki, the traditional Polish doughnut enjoyed on Fat Thursday, comes in all sorts of flavors like prune, rose, and even bacon!  🌹🥓
      • Emoji Eats - Did you know the "doughnut" emoji was originally proposed as a "bagel with cream cheese"? Talk about a close call - now they have both! 🍩🥯
      • Sweet Stats - The average American eats about 11 doughnuts per year. But on Fat Thursday, who's counting? 😂

      • ‍ Kites have been used for centuries not just for fun, but also for communication, research, and even warfare! 🤩😮
