History of Admin Day

Administrative Professionals Day (also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day) is an unofficial "holiday" observed (in North America) on the Wednesday of the last full week of April (April 24 in 2013). 

Mary Barrett, then president of the former National Secretaries Association, and C. King Woodbridge, then president of Dictaphone Corporation started the idea of the holiday. They served on a council addressing a national shortage of skilled office workers. The account executives at Young & Rubicam originated the idea for a National Secretaries Week.

Originally, "National Secretaries Week," was held June 1–7 in 1952, with Wednesday, June 4, 1952 designated as National Secretaries Day. The first Secretaries Day was sponsored by the National Secretaries Association with the support of corporate groups.

In 1955, the observance was moved to the last full week of April, and in 1981 the name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week. In 2000, another name change - this time to Administrative Professionals Week in order to include the expanding responsibilities and wide-ranging job titles of administrative support staff. 

In the United States, the day is often celebrated by giving one's assistant gifts such as flowers, candy, trinkets, lunch at a restaurant, gift cards, or time off (we like the flowers idea, but we could be biased there.)

Christmas Poinsettia Plant

Poinsettia PlantEvery year, when the Christmas season comes around, people usually find themselves soaked with twinkling lights and red and green lushness. The holidays are pretty uniform this way, especially with the use of specific flowers as Christmas ornaments.  Take the poinsettia, for example. These gorgeous plants are easily one of the best selling florist products during the Yuletide season.

For those who are not very familiar with Christmas plants or flowers, there is actually a good reason for why Poinsettias are found just about everywhere during Christmas time. For one, this time of the year is when Poinsettias actually bloom; around the month of December. And with these plants being completely covered in red and green foliage, Poinsettias are easily associated with this happy holiday season.
