System Administrator Appreciation Day

System administrators, or sysadmins, are IT specialists tasked with making sure computer systems are working properly. Among their many jobs, they get servers and operating systems up and running, make sure network connections are safe and working, fix email if it goes down, and update antivirus software. They are often on call, addressing technology issues at all times of the day and night. System Administrator Appreciation Day gives them recognition for what they do for individuals and businesses. On the day, they are given gifts and public acknowledgment to show that all their hard work and dedication are appreciated. Food, cake, balloons, confetti, cards, gifts, and words of affirmation are regular parts of the day.
