National Nothing Day

This is really intriguing, perhaps even kooky.

I read that in the US of A, yesterday, January 16 was actually National Nothing Day. 

San Francisco Examiner columnist Harold Pullman Coffin created the holiday in 1973 "to provide Americans with one national holiday when they can just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything".

This holiday of nothing has continued to be celebrated, I think. It's pretty hard to measure the popularity of a holiday where you do nothing!

I am making a promise here that next year, I will observe National Nothing Day!

Yesterday, I was again at an EcoWorld Toastmasters meeting – but at a different venue, i.e. Bukit Bintang City Center in Kuala Lumpur. I was there to take up the role of General Evaluator. 

The Lunar New Year mood is already present and just as on Wednesday, we had "yee sang"!
