Today is Honesty Day and most of us will know that if we tune into our Social Media.
Honesty Day is also known as National Honesty Day and it is celebrated on April 30th.
The day was chosen in part because April begins with April Fool’s Day, which is based on deception.
What is the purpose of having tricks and dishonesty at the beginning of the month and then have the opportunity to redeem those lies, so we can enjoy Honesty Day at the end of the month?
WHY is this making no sense at all?
The day was created in the early 1990s by an author who wrote a book about Lies, which tells us we lie around 200 times a day.
Some of us may be interested in this topic, some of us will not agree and outright refute that we Lie that much and others no doubt will laugh at all of it.
Regardless of our beliefs and opinions, let us explore a bit more about Honesty in this article. (1)
