January 16: National Nothing Day


A day to celebrate nothing, created in 1973 by newspaperman Harry Pullman Coffin, is the ultimate unvent, the ultimate dull day. Coffin said he founded the day “to provide Americans with one national day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything.” Harry will have no difficulty doing nothing on January 16. He died in 1981. Harry was a native of Reno Nevada. He died in Capitola California.
