A Brief History of National Honesty Day

National Honesty Day had its first internet recognition on 30th of April, 2015, when we detected an avalanche of 11302 honest-loving online mentions. It's enough to make Pinocchio's nose shrink! The inception of this day though, is traced back to M. Hirsh Goldberg, who after spending years researching and publishing 'The Book of Lies', decided a day should be dedicated to the 'honest truth' and thus the National Honesty Day was born.

Embracing the Truth

Distilled down to its purest form, National Honesty Day encourages a day of truthful communication between friends, family and colleagues. It might be tougher than swallowing a dictionary, but the truth can indeed set you free.

Honesty in Various Spheres of Life

Be it in finance, where honest financial management can save one a penny or two; to properties, where truth in transactions can avoid future tussles. From raising awareness about the benefits of honesty in our daily lives, to its romantic implications (admit it, honesty is pretty darn attractive), it's no surprise that a day dedicated to the virtue of truth has made such online waves.
