When is Punch the Clock Day? This holiday is always observed on January 27

Every once in a while, you come upon a special day that just defies definition. Punch the Clock Day is one of those days. Despite all of our research, we found no content information on the Internet to define the purpose or meaning of this January 27 holiday. And, you won’t find information about today in an old Encyclopedia either. 

Do you want to get paid? Of course, you do! Many of us punch in and out of work on a time clock.  This records how many hours we worked down to the minute. It allows our company to calculate our wages and to pay us. (I’m all for getting paid.) That makes punching the clock a day worth celebrating.

Not ones to give up easily, we put our thinking caps on regarding the creation of this special day, and we pondered the meaning of this holiday.  We quickly determined that this day is not intended to encourage people to punch their clocks or their watch. This is destructive, serves no logical purpose, and may result in personal injury. But, it just might be a fun thing to do.

Smart as we are (tee hee), we quickly surmised that Punch the Clock Day is a day to celebrate the punch clock or time clocks we use at work. Now, we wondered why celebrate the punch clock at work. This left us bewildered and dumbfounded.

Readers’ Comments:

“This holiday celebrates the system of calculating employee work hours through the Punch Clock system and its invention. On this holiday you are encouraged to share a day of celebration at your workplace. Management needs to have plenty of coffee, tea, and doughnuts in the break room so you and all your workmates can get together on your coffee break and celebrate the punch clock ” …Anonymous
