Work
Holidays

We know it can be a bit of a drag to get out of bed, make the commute, occasionally spill coffee on your shirt along the way… it’s all in a day’s work, literally! Over a third of our day is spent at work — for some, maybe more — and while some of our work days can get a little humdrum, work-related holidays were created to combat just that! There are over 20 holidays that celebrate work, workplaces, and different job titles. What’s a holiday you want to celebrate about work?
