Hide 'Last login:' on bash login

Everytime I open a new Terminal on my Mac, I get a line like this:

Last login: Thu Nov 25 09:07:55 on ttys004

This annoys me. I don’t care when I last opened a local Terminal.

To hide this “Last login” message when logging in to bash you need to create a file in your homedirectory.

touch ~/.hushlogin

With this .hushlogin file in place you won’t see the “Last login” message and go directly to your prompt, where you want to be.
