January 16 is National Nothing Day


January 16 is observed as National Nothing Day.

According to CNBC, the holiday was allegedly created in the early ‘70s by San Francisco Examiner columnist Harold Pullman Coffin.

The holiday was created to provide Americans with one day where they can just sit without celebrating, observing or honoring anything.  

Americans are encouraged to spend the day without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything.

The day has not been established as a national holiday, which requires an act of Congress.
