Psst, hey, don’t let your co-workers see this, but today is National Boss’s Day. You still have time to sneak away from the office to grab your boss’s favorite snack or write a card to show your appreciation.
Or you can always give your boss a shout out on social media with the hashtag #BossDay.
The tradition began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, who worked as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Co. in Deerfield, Ill., registered “National Boss’s Day.” National Boss’s Day is usually observed on Oct. 16, or the closest work day, if Oct. 16 falls on a weekend.
Haroski was employed by her father, whose birthday was Oct. 16.
Never miss a local story.
The celebration seems appropriate because most working Americans spend more time at work than at home, not including sleep, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
So here’s to the higher-ups of the world. Happy National Boss’s Day.
