Ringing in 2016

Ringing in 2016

I want to wish you a Happy New Year and want to close out the 2015 blog year with a look forward to 2016. It will be a leap year and we will have to work on February 29th which falls on a Monday.  As a business owner I welcome the extra day because it gives me one more day to Turn Things On End To Achieve Results!

The holiday schedule doesn’t look particularly good since Christmas 2016 and New Year’s Day 2017 fall on a Sunday. More bad news for restaurant owners is that Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve fall on the weekend which is generally unfavorable.    The unofficial summer season; measured between Memorial Day and Labor Day is about average since Memorial Day is late on the 30th and Labor Day is also late on the 5th.  In between, there is some good news in that the Fourth of July falls on a Monday.

Other items to note; daylight savings time will begin on March 13th but end on November 6th. Anyone who is involved in the payroll process should be aware that Veteran’s day, November 11th, falls on a Friday so if your pay cycle falls that day you will have to accommodate the bank holiday.  From a quick scan of the calendar, I believe that is the only Friday bank holiday.

The Summer Olympics are being held this year in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from August 5th to August 21st. On February 7th the 50th Super Bowl will be played in Santa Clara, California.  Also falling on the 7th is the start of the Masters Golf tournament in April and the Kentucky Derby in May.  The most significant sporting event will begin on April 3rd which is the opening of the Major League Baseball season.    Opening “day” is the next day on 4/4/16 which is also known as square root day – for obvious reasons.  I suspect the Pittsburgh Pirates will begin their dominance in the National League Central Division that day.  One can hope anyway…

I hope 2015 was a good year and that your Christmas season was meaningful. If not, as an optimist*, I always believe that tomorrow is another chance to get it right.  Have a great week and a Happy New Year.

* a bit of sarcasm to end the year – free of charge!
