Wonderful Weirdos Day
Today is the day to show your appreciation to all the “weirdos” in your life. You know, those oddballs who have taught you to think outside the box and dare to be different. Give them – or yourself, if you’re the weirdo – a hug today.

“Neither Snow Nor Rain” Day

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

Celebrating the anniversary of the opening of the the James Farley Post Office, the main Post Office branch in New York City, which bears the above famous inscription attributed to the ancient Greek historian Herodotus.

FYI: Contrary to popular belief that this is the motto of the US Post Office, there is in fact no official motto!

Play Days (09/06-10)
<sigh> The summers over. The 3 day weekend is over. Its back to the real world kiddies! Damn work sucks! </sigh>

Well don’t get too down cause there’s some hope for us yet. The HUMOR Project hopes to show that while it may be called work, we can still “play” just a little while longer. By using humor, make your workplace a better, more humorous and maybe even an enjoyable place to work.

Labor Day (US)
The first Monday in September is an annual and national tribute to the contributions that US workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the country.

Labor Day is generally observed with parades, speeches, barbecues, and picnics. The day has also become the unofficial end of the summer season with many colleges, secondary and elementary schools beginning classes immediately after the Labor Day weekend.
