Chicago is for Doers: Make Something Happen on #NationalNothingDay January 14, 2014 There’s an un-holiday for every ridiculous thing you can think of. National Dress Up Your Pet Day, Squirrel Lovers Day, Sports Wives Appreciation Day. Heck, there’s even a day for people with two different colored eyes! But on this day, January 16, Americans recognize the most ludicrous holiday of them all, National Nothing Day. A day dedicated to the idea that “nothing is possible.” A day that insults the “make-it-happen spirit” that Chicagoans embody 365 days of the year.
