September 1 is National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day.
You must be wondering what this holiday is all about. Usually, the name of the holiday gives it all away. Well, it’s pretty simple; this day celebrates words (in the English language) that don’t rhyme with any other word. Hey, I don’t make them up, I just report them!
On this day your job is to go on a cupid word hunt, see how many words that don’t have a rhyming buddy you can find. Once you have a list of those words, find them a close match.
