Tell The Truth Day

If you’re prone to bending the truth or telling the occasional white lie, then you might not be happy with Tell The Truth Day. This holiday is observed on July 7th and encourages everyone to put their lying ways aside for the day and to tell nothing but the truth. Although for many people that’s not going to be all that difficult, we anticipate that there are probably quite a few people who would find spending the day telling the truth to be a very arduous task.

The History Of Tell The Truth Day

We cannot tell a lie; at this point in time, we simply don’t know who created this holiday or when it was created. We’ll continue our research, but we hate to say that this holiday has probably been lost to history.

Interesting Facts About Lying

Want to learn more about lying? If you do, then we’ve gathered together some very interesting facts that you can share with friends and family members on Tell The Truth Day. Okay, let’s get started and find out all we can about lying.

People Lie The Most While Writing

Something we’ve discovered about lying that surprised us is that people tend to lie more when writing emails than they do in person. Actually, people don’t just lie more in emails; they also lie more in chat messages and text messages as well. And when letter-writing was more popular, people also tended to lie more in letters than they did in person.

Lying Is Bad For You

One study suggested that lying can be really harmful to your health. That’s because lying adds stress to a person’s life, and that can have a detrimental effect on your health. So, the moral of the story is if you’re trying to stay healthy, then avoid lying whenever you can.

People Are Bad At Detecting Lies

Most people think that they would always be able to tell if a person is lying, but science seems to suggest otherwise. Several studies have shown that the average person can only detect about half of the lies they hear. This is mostly due to the fact that the visual cues that people supposedly display while lying aren’t true indicators of lying.

People Trust Bearded Men More

One study has shown that clean-shaven men are considered to be less trustworthy than men who have beards. It seems that bearded men are regarded as being more charismatic and reliable.

How To Observe Tell The Truth Day

As we stated earlier, the best way to observe this holiday is by spending the day telling the truth. Sure, it might be hard for some people, but it’s absolutely necessary to celebrate this holiday properly. Once you’ve done that, you can take the time to teach your children about the harmful effects that lying can have on relationships and the damage it can do to society.
