Today is Bosses Day!

The origin of Bosses Day dates back to 1958. Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois, registered it with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Why October 16th? It was the bosses birthday and he was  ….her father.

Show the boss what you really think of him or her ~ send flowers, candy or a lucky bamboo. After all, it only comes around once a year.
