National Nothing Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: January 16, 2017 is National Nothing Day.

Nothing Day

Nothing Day continues to be commemorated since 1973. Your day generally is about not doing anything whatsoever, placing it inside a similar vein with other such surreal non-occasions being an Not-Birthday or Buy Nothing Day. There's simply no purpose or intended structure with this pointless celebration.Your day was initially suggested through the late American newspaper writer Harold Coffin. Nothing Day began using the intent of eventual self-destruction, through satirically reigning with what Coffin considered a glut of lately established, useless commemorative days. Coffin’s Nothing Organisation was concurrently created to be able to raise awareness. Fittingly, the organisation has not held just one meeting. The ongoing official festivities stand proof of Coffin’s ultimate failure.As it's all about spending without trying on honoring practically nothing, Nothing Day may also be about honoring existence itself. The only real limits how your day is spent would be the imagination and bank balance from the participant.Your day also boosts some quite interesting questions about a philosophical level. Can something useful truly spring from nothing? Based on your point of view, Coffin could either happen to be a latter-day David Hume or perhaps a quotable newspaper writer slightly too clever for their own good.

Yeah, it was a bit of a nothing day of Test cricket at the SCG. But it was good just to watch a little cricket without the hype. Nothing can be really something in a world full of something. That's the Seinfeld lesson and it's one of the best lessons ...
