BANNERS: National Workplace Napping Day | National Napping Day (#NationalWorkplaceNappingDay) (#NationalNappingDay)

It's a much appreciated day because we could all use some extra Z's after turning our clocks ahead one hour for the beginning of Daylight Savings Time!!!..

This day was created thanks to Boston University Professor William Anthony, author of the book The Art of Napping, who says that the first Sunday of daylight savings time, should be celebrated as “National Nap Day.”

The day was originally celebrated on the first Sunday of daylight savings time and was known as National Nap Day, but that eventually changed to the Monday after it, taking on another name in the process - National Workplace Napping Day.

However you enjoy your cereal, grab life by the cereal spoon with an extra large bowl today.

BANNERS: National OREO COOKIE Day | March 6 (#NationalOreoCookieDay)

March 6 is National Oreo Cookie Day, not that we need a reason to celebrate 'Milk's Favorite Cookie' and quite possibly America's best-selling cookie since its introduction in 1912.

The origin of the name Oreo is unknown, but there are many hypotheses, including derivations from the French word 'Or', meaning gold (as early packaging was gold), or the Greek word "Ωραίο", meaning tasty, beautiful, nice or well done. Others believe that the cookie was named Oreo because it was short and easy to pronounce.

The "Oreo Biscuit" was first developed and produced by the National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) in 1912 at its Chelsea, Manhattan factory in the current-day Chelsea Market complex, located on Ninth Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets. Today, this same block of Ninth Avenue is known as "Oreo Way."

The first Oreo was sold on March 6, 1912, to a grocer in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Did you know, in 2013 research on rats at Connecticut College revealed that Oreos might be as addictive to them as cocaine?

Happy National Oreo Cookie Day!

Today is the day to reward your employee(s) because it's Employee Appreciation Day! This unofficial holiday celebrated in the United States and Canada is a day for companies to show their employees how much they appreciate their hard work and effort throughout the year.

Employee Appreciation Day was created in 1995 by Bob Nelson, a founding Recognition Professional International board member, together with his publishing company, Workman Publishing. The purpose of Employee Appreciation Day is also to strengthen the bond between employer and employee.

Happy Employee Appreciation Day!
