October 16th every year is National Boss Day, a day for celebrating the people in your life who keep us employed! The boss is also slang used to describe a person or thing that is excellent. So if you’re blessed with an amazing boss, do a little something for them this day!
History of the National Boss Day
In 1958, National Boss Day was registered by Patricia Bays Haroski as a holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce in honor of her father, which was supposedly also her employer. She made this holiday to improve the official relations between the supervisors and the employees and raise the cognizance of all the hard work that the bosses put into their jobs. She felt that the younger employees did not appreciate their bosses enough, and when she knew how much her father contributed and what he went through to run the company smoothly, it changed her viewpoint entirely. However, it was not till Illinois Governor Otto Kerner had supported her registration four years later that this day was officially a national holiday.
