Some different national appreciation days include Employee Appreciation Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Bartender Appreciation Day and System Administrator Appreciation Day. National appreciation days are also held for animals, such as bats and manatees.
Commemorative days are issued by governments, as well as awareness clubs, non-profit groups and other organizations. Some commemorative days, like national Lineman Appreciation Day, are set by Senate resolutions. Appreciation days for humans are intended to recognize and honor employees, specific careers and spouses.
Animal appreciation days are often used to raise awareness about declining species numbers or to highlight the benefits of an unpopular animal, such as the use of bats in pest control.
