Nothing to Fear Day for the year 2023 is celebrated/observed on Saturday, May 27th. There are until the next observance.

Every year on May 27, “Nothing to Fear Day” is commemorated. President Franklin D. Roosevelt remarked on this day in 1941 that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Fear is a vital and normal survival response. It may, however, be a bad feeling if it drives us to act unreasonably. When we allow fear to govern our lives, we view things differently, become more cautious and timid, or overreact to situations in potentially disastrous ways for ourselves and others. Nothing to Fear Day is an opportunity to assess oneself and identify one’s anxieties. It leads us to do things that prevent us from becoming our best selves.

Franklin D. Roosevelt took office as the 32nd president of the United States on Saturday, March 4, 1933, on the East Portico of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Roosevelt’s inaugural address was keenly anticipated since the nation was in the throes of the Great Depression. Tens of millions of Americans heard the speech, which was broadcast all over the country on several radio networks. It made Roosevelt act quickly in the face of the crisis.
