National Worship Of Tools Day

National Worship of Tools Day is not a holiday that’s designed to be taken literally. You’re not supposed to actually go out there and worship the tools in your garage. What it is instead encouraging you to do is to take the time to inspect, clean, and ensure that your tools are in good working condition.

Too many people neglect their tools and instead leave them to rust or corrode in their toolboxes. Anyone who is dependent on their tools for working around the home or for earning a living will want to observe this holiday on March 11th every year.
