STRETCH YOUR LAUGHTER

1. Stretch your smiles into laughter this weekend in Phillipsburg.

The Perfect Christmas Tree Farm will host two 30-minute Laughter Yoga sessions at 10 a.m on Saturday and Sunday.

Laughter Yoga combines self-induced laughter and yogic breathing. It does not move humor or comedy, but you might feel the joy as you ease your way from pose to pose.

The Perfect Christmas Tree Farm is at 999 Route 22. Info: 908-387-1225 or at http://www.perfectchristmastree.com.
