Daily Holidays August 27

The Duchess Who Wasn't Day “The Duchess” Who Wasn’t Day celebrates the life of Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, an irish novelist who was always published under the pen name “The Duchess” in the United States – also the name of her most popular novel, published in 1887. Margaret is responsible for the popular phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, in her book Molly Bawn, so try and slip it into conversation! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/the-duchess-who-wasnt-day/


Franchise Appreciation Day The grouping of businesses together under one banner to promote sales and make it cheaper to buy, and produce, the items or services that they do. While many people see a franchise as a whole lot of money, that is not always true. A franchise can have very little funds, as they are all tied together in making sure the franchise succeeds. This is a day to celebrate that camaraderie and maybe even embrace it deeper than usual with Franchise Appreciation Day! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/franchise-appreciation-day/

3. Thank You

Great addition and great photo. I'm going to try and do just that, things have been a bit challenging around the workplace these last few weeks and I suspect they will be again for my charming evening shift followed by a quick turnaround to an early morning shift tomorrow, but that is all about to end.
