IT Insights Blog — Holidays

A Day to Remember

Posted by TestOut Staff on

Happy Digital Learning Day!

We occasionally shout out some pretty silly national days here at the IT Insights Blog. (Hey, this is a rough gig. YOU try coming up with something new to write about three days a week for an entire year, Mr. Intelligent Trousers.) For example, in additional to being Feb. 27, today is also Anosmia Awareness Day, National Kahlua Day, National Strawberry Day, National Polar Bear Day, and National Retro Day.

Have some cake!

The IT Insights blog is taking the day off, in honor of the Washington's Birthday (also called Presidents Day) federal holiday. We will be back on Wednesday, Feb. 20.

Check out this incredible deal: In honor of POTUSes past and present, you can get your first month's access to our massive Library Suite IT training portfolio for just $5!

By George, what a savings!

Technically there is no such holiday in the United States as "Presidents Day." The federal holiday that is observed on the third Monday of February each year is Washington's Birthday, as established by an Act of Congress in 1789. As a result of passage of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act in 1971, however, the Washington's Birthday holiday can never actually fall on Feb. 22, which most historians agree is the date, in 1732, that George Washington was actually born.

This Little Piggy

2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig

The next few days on the calendar are fraught with animal auspices. If you find yourself taking a serious interest in reincarnation, or maybe even just contemplating a one-time donation to PETA, well, there's something in the air. Saturday is Groundhog Day (which more or less represents the nirvana that ever zany This or That Day out there strives to achieve). On Sunday, we've got the Rams in the Super Bowl. And, perhaps of greatest portent, next Tuesday is the first day of the Year of the Pig.
