“Make Up Your Own Holiday” Day
List Mar 26, 2020
In honor of this day, we asked some of our staff back at Technology Networks HQ what they would choose to see celebrated on a global level. If you need a bit of light relief at the moment, these may raise a smile – what a mixed bunch!
I love the satisfaction of growing something I can eat, seeing it through from seed to fork and having the opportunity to get out in the fresh air and work in the garden – good for mind, body and soul 😊

A topic that means something dear to me….. (because if we could keep this to one day of the year only, the world will be a better place).
- Rob, Account Manager
Never underestimate the power of some nice new stationery to motivate a person. I love a novelty pen, and possess every color highlighter under the sun (I only use one of those colors but they look pretty on my desk)

A day out on the golf course in the sunshine with everything going right – best score ever and then a lovely Guinness in the Club House. Or two…. Or three!
- Aggie, Office Administrator
I live in Sheffield where we have the most amazing pork sandwich shops. A classic pork sandwich with “everything on” entails a nice breadcake spread with dripping, stuffing, pork, crackling and of course apple sauce dolloped on there too. I think we should have a day where it’s socially acceptable to eat them from breakfast, lunch and tea. Mmmm!

When I was a child, I used to watch Popeye the cartoon on Saturday mornings, and be fascinated with the superman strength that he received from inhaling a can of spinach. Even though some aspects of the cartoon is now dated (popeye with a constant pipe in his mouth), I still remember it fondly. It was to my delight when I found out that on the 26th March 1937, Spinach growers in Crystal City, Texas celebrated the cartoon character by erecting a full-coloured statue of him, with the creator’s, E.C. Segar’s blessing. Therefore, I think that the 26th March should be Popeye day!
