NATIONAL RECEPTIONISTS DAY

They also deserve respect. They set your appointments and do all the paperwork to keep everything in order. Without a receptionist, there’s no way an office could go about the day to day business smoothly, Receptionist’s Day celebrates these heroes of office life with their very own holiday. First, let’s see what does a receptionist actually is. We often conflate the terms secretary and receptionist.

A receptionist covers many areas of work to assist your business like setting appointments, record keeping, filing, and a myriad of other office tasks all for the sake of keeping things moving. They are the first contact most people have with a company, and the last face they see on their way out the door.

A secretary, on the other hand, does not work for a business at large. A secretary handles many of these same functions, but they are usually specialized in assisting one individual or at most a small team. A secretary is deeply involved in managing their projects, communicating needs between them and their clients, and organizing the whole mess on a day to day basis, usually to exacting standards.

This day recognizes the efforts of these hardworking individuals. This day was launched in 1991 to celebrate the role that professional receptionists have all around the world, to recognize how important receptionists are. If you own office, give them a paid leave today. Gift them a basket of healthy fruits and energy-boosting snacks. Even a thank you is enough to express your gratitude towards what they do for your company.

WORLD COCKTAIL DAY

No party is complete without a cocktail in your hand. For a fun-filled night out, cocktails provide a wide arrangement of scents and flavors to keep everything exciting and have a long history of becoming a steady staple in people’s lives. So, let us dive in and see what World Cocktail Day is all about.

The history of a cocktail dates back to 1806 when the Balance and Columbian Repository coined the term “cocktail” as stimulating liquor with a wide variety of sweets, waters, and bitters. The Oxford Dictionary defined the term with a different set of connotations, describing it as a horse with a tail like a cock’s, with its tail cocked up instead of hung down. Cocktail as a drink, however, started as a British invention in the 19th century and has since become an American innovation when a Connecticut-born bartender Jerry Thomas wrote the book “The Bartender’s Guide.” The Bartender’s Guide broadcasted an encyclopedia of how to mix drinks and recipes on some of the best combinations of drinks and flavors.

Host a party at your place and mix up some drinks for your friends. Make your own kitchen bar. You can also celebrate this day by taking part in the Drinkaware’s World Cocktail Day event.
