Where does 🍋 - lemon emoji come from?

Lemons are associated with many things, including food, health, beverages, the much beloved performer Beyoncรฉ, fabric and decorative design, and of course, the occasional bump in the road (a lemon) with which the resourceful person might make lemonade.

Since lemons are sour, the metaphor works to suggest that life is not all sweetness and ease, and when one has a difficult moment, one should make the best of it. Often attributed to self-improvement guru Dale Carnegie in the 1940s, the first to use lemons as a “bad thing,” according to Wikipedia, was one Christian anarchist writer named Elbert Hubbard, in a 1915 eulogy for a friend: “He picked up the lemons that Fate had sent him and started a lemonade-stand.”

Then, 100 years later theย lemon emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. And so the story goes.

Who uses 🍋 - lemon emoji ?

Pucker up! Ok, lemons might cause some weird facial expressions, but in the right context, they are a delicious food item, an essential ingredient in some adult beverages, and they also make for a quite delicious decorating motif, among other things.

Sometimes, all of those ideas are rolled into one earnest social-media post!

The lemon emoji is often used in social-media posts about the pop star Beyoncรฉ, ever since her 2016 album “Lemonade” was released. It’s used especially in combination with theย beeย emoji here.

And of course, don’t forget celebrating the beauty of actual lemonade, especially when amazing people do amazing things with the zingy yellow fruit!

The emoji also illustrates the idea of “making lemonade,” i.e., when life hands you lemons (as if lemons were a bad thing …).
