National Thank God It’s Monday Day

National Thank God It’s Monday Day is a holiday that encourages people to think about the start of the week a little differently. People who have to head out the door for work and children heading to school usually dislike this day of the week, but that shouldn’t be the case.

It’s a day that should be viewed as a new opportunity for individuals to begin their journey toward accomplishing their personal goals. Employers and teachers can help make Monday a more pleasant experience by hosting special events on this holiday to boost morale. Perhaps a small party or special event could make those who attend happier.

The History of National Thank God It’s Monday Day

We really don’t know who invented this holiday. Was it a teacher trying to raise the morale of their students? Or perhaps it was an employer looking to increase workplace productivity?

After all, this holiday is observed on the first Monday in January, and traditionally, that’s the time when workplace productivity is at an all-time low. If we ever find out who invented this holiday or when it was invented, we’ll share it with everyone, but for now, it will have to remain a mystery.

Observing National Thank God It’s Monday Day

We think that this is a holiday that everyone can appreciate and on which everyone can make that Monday more pleasant. For employers, that means giving their workers a bit of a break and maybe offering them the chance to dress casually or to have a small office party.

For teachers, it’s a good day to do something nice for the class. And for workers and students, it’s a good day to do something to make the office or the classroom the best it can be. If we all work together, we can improve the status of Mondays and ensure it’s never a day that people dread.
