National Thank You Day
annually on September 15th
People are kind to each other every day. They let others go ahead of them in line, they hold doors open for strangers, they give gifts, and they speak words of encouragement. How can these words and deeds of kindness be acknowledged? By saying "thank you," of course! Words of thank you should be spoken regularly, but especially today, on National Thank You Day. Not only can people show they are thankful to others by saying a simple phrase—they can often do it by returning a favor or giving a gift as well.
How to Observe
Celebrate the day by making sure to say "thank you" whenever someone does something nice for you, or by showing your thanks to them with your actions or by giving a gift. You can show your thanks for a specific thing someone does, or you can show thanks to them in general. For example, you could buy a treat for a loved one out of thanks for all they have done and continue to do for you.
