After American secretary Patricia Bays Haroski registered 'National Boss' Day' 1958, employees who simply couldn't get enough of their fantastic boss have been marking Oct. 16 - the day she picked to commemorate her boss. That day also happened to be her father's birthday - and Haroski worked for him.
Hallmark Cards began offering a Boss' Day card in 1979.
Didn't get anything for your boss today? Don't sweat it! National Boss's Day has become an international celebration and is observed in countries such as Australia, India, South Africa, Ireland, and Egypt - and in Egypt they celebrate the day on Dec. 10 so just remember to do something special then.
