National Honesty Day
April 30 is National Honesty Day in the United States.
We know the different kinds of lies. We’ve spared someone’s feelings or fudged the truth just a little or maybe told an all out whopper. Unless we walked on water, we’ve all told a lie or two. National Honesty Day challenges us to be truthful in all we do.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Celebrate National Honesty Day by answering questions truthfully all day long. Use #NationalHonestyDay to share on social media.
The author of The Book of Lies, M. Hirsh Goldberg, created National Honesty Day in the early 1990s. Former press secretary to a Maryland governor selected the last day of April in contrast to all the foolishness the first of the month brings.
National Honesty Day is often used as a campaign for prevention against the most deceitful lies in history. This day also urges politicians to stay away from lies and tell the truth.
