Let's Be Honest
Honesty Day is celebrated on April 30th in the United States. The purpose of this day is to encourage honesty and straightforward communication in politics, consumer relations, and relationships. This holiday was invented by M. Hirsh Goldberg. He chose the last day of April for two reasons: to counter the first day of April, which is April Fools Day, and since it's the same day as the inauguration of George Washington in 1789. M. Hirsh Goldberg was a former secretary of Maryland and wrote a multitude of novels. He created this day in the early 1900s as a campaign for prevention against political lies. Its purpose is to also urge politicians to stay away from lies and tell the truth. On that day, the Goldberg family gave out honesty awards to companies, organizations, groups, and individuals that tell the truth, and only the truth, to people.
