National Boss’s Day originated in the mind of Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Chicago. She registered the holiday with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958, selecting October 16 as the date as it was her dad’s birthday. Haroski’s goal was to express gratitude for her boss, as well as to recognize all great employers across the country. She hoped the day would improve and enhance the relationship between employees and their supervisors, bosses and owners. In 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner proclaimed the day an official observance (although it is not a national holiday). In addition to the United States, the day is celebrated in several other countries such as Australia and India.

There may be no one more special people in our lives than grandparents – and given that fact, having a day to recognize them seems like a great idea to us! Grandparents Day is observed on September 10, and was originally the vision of a woman named Marian McQuade. A mother and grandmother herself, Marian did not set out to create a commercial holiday, rather to set aside a time that the elder generation could impart stories, wisdom and history to their kids and grandkids. It is a day to spend time together and enjoy being a family.
