December 15, 2020 – Cat Herders Day | Bill of Rights Day

Does Your Job Description Include Herding Cats?

Welcome to December 15th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate inalienable rights and impossible jobs.

Many jobs are essential and require a particular set of skills.  But some jobs require the patience of a saint: Kindergarten Teacher, wildlife photographer, sound engineer.  These jobs and many more are often referred to as “herding cats” mainly because the things you’re responsible for have a  tendency to wander off.   Sorry, John.  You’re not alone if you find that nothing stays where you put it or your team seems to be in left field while you’re in the right.  If this sounds vaguely familiar then kick up your feet today and give yourself a well deserved day off on Cat Herders Day.

The first 10 amendments to the US Constitution are more commonly known as the Bill of Rights. Congress created 14 official copies of the original document, one for the federal government and one for each of the original 13 states. It turns out the copies were a good precaution as somehow four of them went missing. North Carolina’s copy of the Bill of Rights was stolen by a Union soldier during the Civil War and was missing for almost 140 years before the FBI tracked it down. Two other copies have been found over the years: one is housed in the Library of Congress, and the other is kept at the New York Public Library. Thankfully these rights are inalienable and while the paper version may go missing, on Bill of Rights Day we celebrate the permanence of this most important document.
