September is filled with many reasons to celebrate and some of the celebrations have “no rhyme or reason”.

Actually, National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, which is annually celebrated on September 1, is celebrating words, in the English language, which do not rhyme with any other words.   These are words that poets try to avoid using at the end of a sentence.

For example, they are words such as:

  • Orange
  • Month


We hope that in each and every way,
You have yourself a very good day.
And if today you are writing a poem,
Once your mind begins to roam,
Do not take any extra time
Trying to use words that will not rhyme.



Make a list of words that you believe cannot be rhymed with, and check if you are correct. Post on social media using #NoRhyme(NorReason) Day to encourage others to join in.


Our research was unable to find the creator or the origin of National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, an “unofficial” National holiday.
