The idea of creation of System Administrator Appreciation Day belongs to Ted Kekatos. He saw an advertisement in the Hewlett-Packard magazine, in which a system administrator was presented by fruit-baskets and flowers for installing new printers in an office. Kekatos also had installed several printers of the same model at his workplace just some days ago, that is why he decided to create a day, when everyone could appreciate work, that system administrators do.
Sysadmin Day annually falls on the last Friday in July. It's very first celebration took place on July 28, 2000. The most common way to celebrate the holiday is eating an ice cream or a cake. This holiday is not recognized on official level, but it's promoted by may IT professional organizations, like the League of Professional System Administrators, SAGE/USENIX and SNIPhub.Remind me with Google Calendar
