national nothing day

national nothing day

Hello to you January 16th! And apparenlty also National Nothing Day! 

Apparently just by writing this post I am going against the entire theme of this day according to one of my favorite websites, Holiday Insights. They describe this day as: This day is an "un-event". The expectation is that we do not create or otherwise promote this day. In other words, we do nothing. And, to say anything more would contradict the purpose of this day.

It is also described as a day to provide Americans with one National day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing or honoring anything.

Apparently this day was created in 1973 by Harold Pullman Coffin a newspaper dude who apparently just wanted to NOT CELEBRATE ANYTHING that day. In America we do observe a lot of holidays so I am a big fan of celebrating the holiday where you don't celebrate holidays. Ok... I am confused but I love the message. 

Seems like the right kind of day to celebrate for a Slow Movement blog! So plan on doing nothing today. I have the day off and am doing a photoshoot with a favorite photographer of mine and my dogs so that is my 'nothing'. 

Make it a great nothing day and see you tomorrow with an outfit post!
