History of No Brainer Day

The history of the term “No-Brainer” goes all the way back to the late 1950s. It seems to have appeared in a cartoon called “The Berrys” in 1959. One other early recorded use of the term is from 1968 when it was used in a Canadian newspaper, The Lethbridge Herald, to describe a decision made during an ice hockey game.

No Brainer Day was founded to keep everything simple in life and encourage people to resolve situations calmly. It is thought to have been founded by a woman named Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, who considers herself to be an “eventologist”. The first No Brainer Day seems to have taken place in 1996 and the day has been celebrated annually ever since that time.
