You're Welcome Day
Date When Celebrated : Day after Thanksgiving
You're Welcome Day encourages us to simply say "You're welcome". It helps to put manners back into society.
This very special day comes the day after Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day we say "Thanks" for what we have. So, it only seems natural, that "You're Welcome" immediately follows a thank you.
Participating in this day can happen anywhere that you are, and anywhere that you go today. Just speak a profusion of "thank you's" for even the slightest of reasons. When you say thank you, make sure to be sincere. It will go a long ways.
Are you enjoying this special day? If so, You're welcome!
Thought for Today: The average American, over the course of his life, spends 6 months waiting at red lights.
Determining the proper date of celebration:
We surfed through countless sites. We found that this day is referenced as occurring on either November 23, 24, 25, 28, or 29. The 23rd was the most common date. We also discovered that most sites that also noted the year, had it occurring the day after Thanksgiving. Recognizing that the single reference to the meaning and content of this day had it noted on the day after Thanksgiving, one can only conclude that this is the correct day of celebration.
In our experience, this is a classic case of individuals and websites copying a date for a special day, without understanding that it may not occur on the same date every year. Keeping the dates correct, takes a lot of effort and research.
Origin of You're Welcome Day:
It is very likely that this special day originated on a blog in 2002. The blog was posted on blogs.salon.com, declaring that day, the day after Thanksgiving, as You're Welcome Day . Unfortunately, the creator did not identify themselves.
