National Memo Day
About National Memo Day
When is National Memo Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 21
Take a memo… Today is National Memo Day. What is it for? Who created this May 21 holiday? Why? These are questions awaiting an answer that may never come. Every once in a while, we discover a special day with no known history or description. As a result, people are inundating me with memos to do further research on this holiday. My response is on a memo I just sent back.
Have a pen and paper handy. Go grab a post-it note. Stand ready at your PC. We suggest you enjoy National Memo Day by giving and taking memos wherever and whenever possible.
Note: If we had a say in the creation of this day, we would rename it “National No Memo Day“. Then, your boss and co-workers wouldn’t be burying you with requests that are on those notes. And, think of the extra time you’d have if you didn’t have to write any memos today!
