September – 2022 Holidays and Observations
Hello September. The end of the federal fiscal year is near. Does this affect you at work? Let us know!
Below you’ll find some month, week, and daylong celebrations/observations (mostly US based). They are holidays/observations related to the content of this site that we’ve selected to highlight. Maybe we missed some, maybe we added some you don’t think apply.
If you’re interested in Food/Drink/Travel holidays, we have a list of those too over at Grecobon.
Which celebrations will you be making note of this month?
International Update Your Resume Month
Even if you’re not in the market for a new job, use International Update Your Resume Month to take some time to update your resume. You never know when the ideal job may present itself. What skills or certificates have you acquired recently, that may be missed if you are in a hurry to put your resume together? Market yourself, and be prepared!
National Mortgage Professional Month
Mortgage Professionals help people finance homeownership. They understand every emotion we are feeling in the process regardless of what that is. Mortgage professionals include loan officers, processors, underwriters, servicers, insurers, and more. You can observe this month by recommending someone who was helpful to you to someone else looking to purchase a home, amongst other things like sending snacks or just giving the people you worked with a shout out or a positive review on social media, yelp, google, etc.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
The second week in September is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. Delivering our goods are about one million professional truck drivers in the US. It is a very demanding yet vital job. So, thank you truck drivers, we appreciate you!
September 3 – US Bowling League Day
Did you know bowling used to be an outdoor sport? Called ninepins, it was popular with gamblers. Connecticut outlawed the game in 1841, this resulted in indoor lane owners adding one pin to their alleys to get around the law. US Bowling League Day celebrates the formation of groups and rules set in place for the game.
Do you enjoy bowling? Keep yourself safe and your shoes lane ready with these bowling shoe covers from MyShoeCovers.
September 6 – National Read A Book Day
Grab a book, relax and spend some time reading. Read to your children, or to grandparents. Encourage your kids to practice their reading skills by reading to you or finding a local shelter program so they can read to shelter animals, a great bonding experience for both.
I’m personally excited about this day in particular this year as I do have something new coming up for September that I’ll be announcing on September 6th.
September 10 – National Swap Ideas Day
Whether it’s at work, in a volunteer organization, or at home, swapping ideas and brainstorming can lead to endless possibilities. Maybe you’ll have the idea for a successful new product at your job, the most successful fundraising campaign your non-profit group has ever had, or you’ll conquer that writers block, design dismay, vacation itinerary holdup, or whatever else you may be struggling with. You can never be sure how your ideas merge with someone else’s ideas to create something amazing. So get together with you need to get get to creating and idea swapping!
September 12 – National Report Medicare Fraud Day
Medicare Fraud is a crime that affects us all. $650 billion dollars is spent annually on Medicare and $65 billion of that is lost to Medicare Fraud. Like in so many other situations – if you see something, say something.
September 12 – National Boss/Employee Exchange Day
Observed the Monday following Labor Day, Boss/Employee exchange day is the opportunity for workers and those above them to spend a day in each other’s shoes. This could be a vital day for some business as higher ups can see how those they manage spend their day and manage their time, perhaps realizing what is needed for a healthy work environment. In contrast workers can see things from their higher ups’ perspectives and the difficulty of managing many people on top of other assorted tasks.
September 13 – Day of the Programmer
Celebrated the 256th day of the year, Day of the Programmer thanks those who make all electronic things work! 256 is the highest power of 2 less than 365 thus the holiday date choosing. On leap years it is celebrated on September 12.
Matt is a programmer if you want to send some love his way – @deedniblog on instagram!
September 16 – National Working Parents Day
This day honors parents who are pulling double duty parenting and working to provide for their families. They juggle both family and work life, daycare schedules, sports schedules, their own schedules, on top of day to day child rearing.
September 16 – National Tradesmen Day
Celebrated the third Friday in September, National Tradesmen Day honors the professionals who keep our lives running and our world spinning. They keep our roads, water systems, power grids and more running. Thank you Tradesmen, Tradeswomen, and Tradespeople!
September 17 – National Professional House Cleaners Day
Working behind the scenes, professional house (and business) cleaners make our world a more beautiful place, literally. While you may not employ one at home, certainly a business or establishment you frequent does and they are an integral part of keeping the smooth ship sailing.
Tell us in the comments, do you have a house cleaner, are you a house cleaner, would you hire one if you don’t have one? We want to know pros and cons!!!
