Happy You’re Welcome Day!
You’re Welcome Day is celebrated each year on the day after Thanksgiving, which makes sense, considering Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks.

Read his struggle with accepting “No problem” as a replacement for “you’re welcome” here.
Use You’re Welcome Day to re-appreciate the importance of the phrase “you’re welcome.” You could also conduct this little social experiment: take any opportunity you can to tell people “thank you” and see how they respond (and how polite or impolite society is today).
