    It slipped right past me.

    I remember when it was Secretaries Day.
    I also remember when they had the freedom to smoke at their desks.

    It's celebrated by 11 countries. The other 184 aren't quite so desperate for perpetual affirmation.

    The WIKI page on this holiday cites several reasons for the holiday being criticized:
    -too consumeristic
    -sexist
    -"ghettoizing" of administrative staff (I'd say you just can't make this stuff up, but apparently somebody has.)
