National Boss's Day is Tuesday October 16th. When I first heard about it I thought it was a put-on. Of course I thought that about some other 'Hallmark' holidays too – like National Re-gifting day (no lie!) which is celebrated on the Thursday before Christmas. I have no explanation.
So when I looked up Boss's Day I was surprised to find out the following: Boss' Day (also known as Bosses Day or National Boss Day) is a secular holiday celebrated on October 16 in the United States. It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their boss for being kind and fair throughout the year. The holiday has been the source of some controversy and criticism in the United States, where it is often mocked as a 'Hallmark' Holiday (that's not intended as a compliment BTW).
National Boss' Day is usually celebrated by presenting one's boss with a small gift or greeting card. It is also customary to treat one's boss with extreme kindness, very similar to a birthday. Some fair-minded and generous bosses have been known to use petty cash to treat their employees to lunch on this festive day — though it may take some time before this observance becomes widespread.
OK that last bit was actually funny. But presenting the boss with a small gift is a solid tradition and a Boss' Day fake magazine cover
shows your apprecation for not having meetings at 4:30PM on a Friday.
I decided to have a little fun at Mark Zuckerberg's expense making the cover nobody at Facebook dares to design! The point is to have fun making a personalized magazine cover
and making a few people smile or even laugh out loud!
