No News Is Good News Day

No News is Good News Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on September 11th. This is a day that celebrates the common phrase: “No news is good news.” This is a saying that basically assures us that everything is all right since we don’t have any information that contradicts that position.

It’s a day to breathe a sigh of relief when we open our mailboxes and notice that we don’t have any mail. That means that we also don’t have any new bills! In other words, it’s just a day to be positive for once and to push away the affliction of doom and gloom that many of our brains continuously process.

The History Of No News Is Good News Day

It’s believed that the first recorded use of the English expression was by James Howell in 1640. He wrote about an Italian proverb known as “Nulla Nuova, buona nuova,” which means “No news is good news.”

We can’t seem to find out who invented it, why they invented it, or even why they placed it on the 11th of September. It seems to be a holiday whose origin has been lost to time.
