Tell a Lie Day
When : Always April 4th
Tell a Lie Day..... if you ever need to tell a lie, today is the day to do so.
We don't create these days, we only report them. Why someone would create a day to encourage a person to lie is hard to comprehend. Be that as it may, today is the day to tell lies, big and small.
Tomorrow, we can all get back to the virtue of "honesty is the best policy".
If you find today a bit discomforting, you can look forward to National Honesty Day later in the month.
Important Note: If you choose not to participate in this day, we will look up to you!
Origin of "Tell a Lie Day":
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
We believe that the creator of this day will be the only person who answers "no" to the following question.... "Did you create Tell a Lie Day?" In keeping with the spirit of this day, everyone's answer will be a lie. Therefore, everyone will say "Yes", except the creator .
