National Tradesmen Day

National Tradesmen Day is an annual holiday dedicated to service workers, like plumbers, computer scientists, cleaners, and many others. We do not need their services every day, but if something fails, you need to contact a specialist. It is celebrated on September 17th.


Representatives of working professions in the service sector are specialists who have acquired certain skills. Without them, it is impossible to imagine our daily life. In order to thank them for their services, in 2011 National Tradesmen Day was established. The creator of the holiday was the large company Irwin Trade, which produces tools for a variety of applications.

In the Ancient World, these specialists were called artisans. They were highly valued. Most often they were engaged in the manufacture of household items, as well as military equipment: swords, armor, or darts. They could make everything you need.

Along with the development of society, various professions also developed. The idea of ​​the division of labor was promoted: each person did their own thing. Today, there is a division of all specialties into two classes: humanitarian (managers, the hotel and restaurant business, office workers) and technical (welders, builders, masons).

Interesting facts

  1. According to statistical studies, by 2050 there will be a shortage of technical professions.
  2. People who have mastered technical professions have better health. They move more and work with their muscles.
  3. An insufficient number of specialists with technical education will negatively affect the global economy, especially in the issue of building new facilities.

How to take part

Congratulate acquaintances and friends who work in a technical specialty. Try to master the skills yourself with the help of training videos or special courses: how to repair technical appliances, install a faucet in the bathroom, and more.
