SAN FRANCISCO -- Did you celebrate anything today?

January 16 is National Nothing Day. Legend has it the non-official holiday was invented in San Francisco in the 1970's by Harold Pullman Coffin.

Pullman was a columnist at the San Francisco Examiner. He wrote that there should be one day a year when people have no obligation to commemorate anything.
