SEPTEMBER 19, 2017 | NATIONAL IT PROFESSIONALS DAY | TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY | NATIONAL BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING DAY
NATIONAL IT PROFESSIONALS DAY
Observed annually every third Tuesday in September, National IT Professionals Day is set aside to honor the venerable geeks of the world we all rely on to keep us connected. The IT (information technology) professional is the unsung hero of modern business, but often under-appreciated by it. Whether it be desktops, laptops, mobile devices, applications, servers, networks, databases or cybersecurity, IT professionals keep business humming. However, there is often a lack of understanding by business leaders and end users of the important role they play and the difficulties and complexities associated with modern IT.
HOW TO OBSERVE
If you’re an end-user, simply say thank you to the IT professionals that make your life easier. Also, share #ITProDay on Social Media to increase awareness of just how important our IT professionals are.
If you’re a business leader, in addition to saying thank you, also recognize and seek out the unique insight your IT professionals can provide in today’s always-on, always-connected world to help you make smart strategic business decisions that will lead to a greater competitive advantage.
National IT Professionals Day was submitted by Solarwinds, a provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, in March 2015 and proclaimed a National day by the registrar of National Day Calendar.

NATIONAL BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING DAY
National Butterscotch Pudding Day is observed annually on September 19. The primary ingredients in the making of butterscotch are brown sugar and butter. However, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt are also sometimes used. In a 1848 newspaper, according to “Housewife’s Corner” and Masluk Cream Co., the real recipe for “making Doncaster butterscotch is one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle, boiled together.”
Butterscotch is often used as a flavor for items such as sauces, candies, and frostings.
