Nat'l Nothing Day
This un-event is one of those "Hallmark" sort of holidays; I don't think it's ever been made a "national" day, which requires an act of Congress. It was first observed in 1973, created by newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin "to provide Americans with one national day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything." Funny that this desire for uneventfulness should come from a man whose entire career depends on something happening every day, eh?!
Celebrate this day by doing ... nothing! We didn't - we had a nice family get-together at my sister's house where we dined on spaghetti 'n sauce w sausage and salad ... YUM! ... and visited w my eldest brother who's in town for the week, watched How To Train Your Dragon, and Jenn use the Wii. Fun day.
