National Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

  
National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is recognized on the fourth Thursday in April each year. This annual event is an educational program in the United States and Canada where parents take their children to work with them for one day. It is the successor of Take Our Daughters to Work Day which, in 2003, was expanded to include boys. Most companies allowed both girls and boys to participate since the beginning, renaming the day “Take Our Children to Work Day.”

National Titanic Remembrance Day

image

Each year on April 15th, National Titanic Remembrance Day is observed. This day is dedicated to the memory of when the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean in April, 1912. We remember the more than 1,500 people who died that day.

Known as the “the unsinkable ship”, the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm April 14, 1912, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. Later, in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on April 15, 1912 the Titanic sank, along with those passengers still aboard that had been unable to escape, due to the insufficient amount of lifeboats on-board the ship.

There have been a few movies made about this subject. Most recently Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

This day is observed annually on April 15th in honor of those who lost their lives on aboard the Titanic in 1912. We were unable to find the creator of National Titanic Remembrance Day, an “unofficial” National holiday.

Purple Up!

April is Month of the Military Child, and this Friday is Purple Up! day. This initiative provides an opportunity for Americans to show their support for military families by wearing purple. The goal of ‘Purple Up!’ is for military youth to actually see the support in their school, youth groups and the community. The color purple was chosen as the signature color as it symbolizes all branches of the military.

Tax Day

April 15 of each year is National Tax Day. In the United States, Tax Day is a term for the day on which individual income tax returns are due to the federal government. Tax Day may also refer to April 15 for state tax returns.
Since 1955, Tax Day, for those living in the United States, has typically fallen on April 15.

   

“Federal income tax was introduced with the Revenue Act of 1861 to help fund the Civil War, and subsequently repealed, re-adopted, and held unconstitutional. The early taxes were based on assessments, not voluntary tax returns. Tax payment dates varied by act.” (Wikipedia)
