This day is an 'un-event'. The expectation is that we do not create or otherwise promote this day. In other words, we do nothing. And, to say anything more would contradict the purpose of this day.

Origin of Nothing Day:

All we know about tis day, is that it was created in 1973 by newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin.
