Is it time to trim the “friend fat” and unfriend folks?
What does “NUD” stand for? Well, it’s not a nickname for NoHo. According to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, NUD is the acronym for National Unfriend Day. The Late Night host even made it into a verb, “nuddening.”
For Facebook users, we all know what to “unfriend” means. So on Monday, November 17, 2014, get your fingers ready to hit that “unfriend” button. We’ll actually be celebrating the third annual National Unfriend Day or as the NoHo Arts District dot com team likes to call it, virtual clean out day. The holiday should be an excuse-free day to get rid of those annoying people (we all have our lists of reasons), high school mean girls/bullies, random folks you’ve picked up along the way or anyone you feel deserves the boot. Mr. Kimmel even came up with a point list. You can create your own if you’d like or add on to his list, which is pretty accurate.
How can you celebrate National Unfriend Day in North Hollywood?
- Have a dinner party at Pitfire or The Eclectic and invite your flesh and blood friends
- Have drinks at Bow and Truss or The Federal and make new friends to add back to your friends list
- And for the more experienced and brave unfrienders or nudderers, actually unfriend/break up with a friend, face to face, not via Facebook.
However you decide to celebrate, we hope you have a Happy Unfriend Day, North Hollywood!
