Secretaries Day ?? April 22

OK, so I’m in the middle of a debate with a bunch of other florists scattered across North America regarding the name of what we used to call Secretaries week, which this year is April 20-24th with April 22 being THE DAY! The day to send your Secretary/Administrative Professional Assistant some beautiful flowers from Smith’s to show them just how much you appreciate their efforts, and maybe even their coffee…

For years it was called Secretaries Day, a time to honor the “Secretary” in the office/company that did all the “dirty work”, paper work and you bosses know what I’m talking about, often the office had a secretary and then other office staff that were not quite as important as the head “secretary”.

But in this day of political correctness, several years ago the name of the week was changed to Administrative Professional Assistants Day (try to fit that on a sign) and the battle began to rage among florists, and it’s been brewing ever since.  What the heck should we call this event?

What ever you call it, remember, this year it’s the week of April 20-24th, with the 22nd being the day!

Secretaries Day?  or is it Administrative Professional Assistants Day??  What say you?  Leave us a comment below, we really would like to know what you think!

Thanks and have a great day!
