Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

August 28, 2010 ~ Crackers over the Keyboard Day

Of all the wacky holiday's this one is up there in the top ten I'm sure.  The entire point of this day is to eat cookies or crackers, or anything that would produce crumbs, over your keyboard.  I suppose this is to make sure your mouse has something to nibble on while you sleep.  You should also celebrate your fellow employees who make it a habit of eating crackers over their keyboard and reward them with a can of air.  For those of you that take this day all to seriously, your keyboard may be beyond the help of canned air and it might just be time for a new one.
