*Boss's Day* is a secular holiday celebrated on October 16 in the United
States and Canada. It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank
their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year.


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 8
because she forgot that the birthday of her boss, who was her father, was
actually on the 16th. Four years later, in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto
Kerner backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the
day.^[/citation needed/]

Hallmark Cards did not offer a Boss' Day card for sale until 1979. It
increased the size of its National Boss' Day line by 28 percent in
2007.^[/citation needed/]

National Boss's Day has become an international celebration in recent years
and now is observed in countries such as Australia, India, South Africa,
Ireland, and Egypt. Note that Egypt celebrates their equivalent holiday on
10 December every year.^[/citation needed/]
