Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day


National Doorbell Day - October 31


On October 31, doorbells will ring more than any other day of the year. National Doorbell Day recognizes the little buzzer, unique tones, and rings that alert us to visitors to our doors every day of the year.

More than 41 million American children dress up and trick-or-treat every Halloween. In honor of the workout the door chime will receive, National Doorbell Day recognizes J.Ralph Corbett, the inventor of the first NuTone brand melodious door chime.


Engage visitors with a riddle or tongue twister to celebrate the day. Greet family members with a password or trivia question about the doorbell to gain entry. Enjoy the festivities and stay safe this Halloween! Use #NationalDoorbellDay to share on social media.


NuTone™ founded National Doorbell Day to celebrate the innovative development of the first melodious door chime invented by J.Ralph Corbett during the Great Depression. His invention replaced the buzzers and knockers that often alerted residents to visitors. Today, NuTone is proud to announce the launch of NuTone Knock™, the company’s revolutionary new video doorbell that allows homeowners to see and talk to visitors from anywhere in the world using their smartphone.

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Doorbell Day to be observed annually beginning in 2017.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
