Leadership Success Day
- the best leaders know that one of the keys to success is keeping things simple. People who you lead want to know that you can be relied on. Demonstrating your reliability and showing that you can be depended on to help others achieve and defend them when the going gets tough are two simple ways of demonstrating your reliability.

Boy Scouts Day
- celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with over 4.5 million youth members in its age-related divisions. Since its founding in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA

Laugh and Grow Rich Day
- Recognition of laughter’s power to add to the bottom line. People who laugh are more effective and tend to remember things better, and laughter helps to lower the turnover rate. The point of this holiday is to see the good points in your job and forget about the bad points in your job. Or another angle that is talked about is to "See the humor in your work no matter how bad the job is" and grow rich! So this holiday celebrates laughing and growing rich!
