Boss Day




"Run, rabbit, run, dig that hole, forget the sun, and when at last the work is done, don't sit down, it's time to dig another one." Now, let's take a closer look at these lines borrowed from the lyrics to the song 'Breathe' by the much celebrated English band, Pink Floyd. You can start off by asking yourself if you are the rabbit, does your boss make you 'dig a hole', forget the sun, and when the work is done, ask you not to sit down because it's time to dig another one. If he/she just happens to treat you this way, go ahead and celebrate Boss's Day. If you are blessed enough to not be treated this way, again, go ahead and celebrate Boss's Day. The point trying to be driven home here revolves around the fact that irrespective of if your boss is a kind-hearted soul or a man/woman with an iron fist; it always pays to celebrate a day set aside for your boss. For details on 'Boss's Day 2017', all you need to do is carve out a few minutes of your time and read on!

Happy Boss Day

The Day
This year, if you are looking to make a huge impression on your boss, don't wait for his/her birthday or his/her '25th Wedding Anniversary'. That's just lame and so much more expected. The one day on which you can surprise your boss by doing something really nice or sweet for him/her just happens to be Boss's Day. Look at it this way; if you go out of your way to do something special for your boss on his/her birthday, he/she probably wouldn't be too surprised, because it's only expected. However, if you do plan on surprising your boss and landing in his/her good books without coming across as a suck up, do so on Boss's Day. Why Boss's Day? Simply because Boss's Day is the day on which your boss doesn't really expect much from any of his/her employees. However, on such a day, if you make all of the right moves and presently surprise your boss, wow, you sure will confirm a place for yourself in what is best described as his/her 'good books'. Traditionally, Boss' Day is always celebrated on October 16th. However, if the 16th of October was to fall on a weekend, let's say a Saturday or a Sunday, the weekday closest to the 16th of October will be celebrated as Boss's Day.

The Celebrations
Celebrating Boss's Day is really up to you. The options at your disposal when it comes to honoring and celebrating your boss are unbounded as the blue skies you see when you look up on a clear sunny morning. From simply giving your boss flowers along with a card that contains an appropriate message to throwing a full-fledged party, the choice is yours for the making. Most employees prefer to use a unique combination of handing over gifts to the boss plus also throwing a party for him/her. This is guaranteed to sit down well with a boss, because here, what he/she's getting is really the best of both worlds. To cut a long story short, on Boss's Day try putting in some serious efforts to make your boss feel special, admired and respected.

That's that, remember, Boss's Day is not just for your boss, it's also for employees. In a way, it's an excellent attempt at bridging the hierarchical gaps that exist between superior and subordinate. Here's wishing you and your boss a very 'Happy Boss's Day'!
