Nothing Day Jan 16, 1973. Anniversary of National Nothing Day, an event created by newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin and first observed “to provide Americans with one national day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing or honoring anything.” Since 1975, though many other events have been listed on this day, lighthearted traditional observance of Coffin’s idea has continued. Coffin, a native of Reno, NV, died at Capitola, CA, Sept 12, 1981, at the age of 76.
