Celebrated annually on April 30, the day was created in the early 1990s by M. Hirsh Goldberg, the former press secretary to the state of Maryland in the United States.

Speak the Truth

Goldberg created the holiday as a way to encourage people to speak the truth and to "honor the honorable."

A Rare Quality

Famous American singer-songwriter, Billy Joel once sang that honesty is such a lonely word, suggesting that honesty is a very rare quality in all kinds of relationships - personal, professional, and social.

This unofficial holiday, also sometimes called National Honesty Day, emphasizes that honesty does not need to be a lonely word and that truthfulness can strengthen relationships and make them more productive.

How to Celebrate?

  • Be truthful. Embrace truth and honesty.

Did You Know…

…that the phrase honesty is the best policy was coined by Benjamin Franklin?
