On This Day: National Fun at Work Day

Fun at Work DayAs if Friday wasn’t enough of an excuse to have fun at work, April 1st is National Fun at Work Day.  You may be thinking, “But it’s April Fool’s Day”.  We love how assertive you are, but there’s not need for us to state the obvious.  Perhaps you can incorporate some of your April Fool’s festivities into the Fun at Work Day celebrations?  If you can’t pull that off, there’s a long list of other holidays you can celebrate today.  In fact, we were wondering if it was an April Fool’s joke that so many holidays fall on the same day.  Check it out!
