Today we celebrate:

Boss's Day (or National Boss's Day) – This is a day to celebrate your Boss. Maybe give them a small, tasteful gift, or invite them out for lunch, or simply wish them a Happy Day today.  This day has been celebrated since 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski selected it to honor her boss at the Illinois State Farm Insurance Company.  Her boss also happened to be her father and this was his birthday.

National Dictionary Day – On this day in 1758, Noah Webster was born. Mr. Webster, of course, was a teacher, author, rabid speller and the creator of the dictionary. Happy Birfday Mr. Webster! Wait, how do you spell that again? I guess I'll have to look it up.

National Feral Cat Day – Created in 2001 by the Alley Cat Allies, this is a day to raise awareness about feral cats. Many feral cats are cared for by people who worry about their well being. Whenever possible, many people try to capture them, neuter them and then return them to their territories if they are not good candidates for adoption.

World Food Day – On this day in 1945, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations was founded. The goal of this organization is to work to eradicate hunger in the world. Most hunger is not because of a lack of food in the world, but a lack of access to resources needed to thrive.

Get to Know Your Customers Day – This is the fourth Get to Know Your Customers Day for the year. It is celebrated on the third Thursday of each quarter.  Use the opportunity to find out what your customers need so that you can be better prepared to provide it.

Get Smart About Credit Day – This is a day for bankers to reach out to their communities by going to the high schools and colleges and teaching the kids about budgeting, using credit cards wisely and building a good credit history.

To celebrate today, use your credit card to buy food to serve to your favorite customers and your boss at the party you are throwing.  Then use your dictionary to find out what feral really means before you try to explain it to your children.
