When is National Boss Day?
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.

What is this Holiday for?
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.

Origin of this Holiday?
Patricia Bays Haroski registered "National Boss' Day" with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958. She was working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois at the time and chose October 16 because it was the birthday of her boss, who happened to be her father.

Four years later in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the day.

Workplace surveys confirm that one of the most important elements of job satisfaction is a positive relationship between a supervisor and employee.

Boss Day & Hallmark Holidays
Hallmark did not offer a Boss' Day card for sale until 1979, but increased the size of its National Boss Day line by 90 percent in 2007 by creating collections of new and innovative cards, including Cards With Sound and new humor cards.
