shedding tears as a response to an emotional state in humans
(Redirected from Cry)

Crying is when tears come out of a person's eyes because they are sad or very happy.

Animals cannot cry. However, animals can release tears for other reasons, such as intense pain.[1]

When over 300 adults were asked how often they cried, they found out that men usually cry once every month, and women cry five or more times per month.[2]
