National Sunday School Teacher Appreciation Day

When: October 20 (3rd Sunday)

What is Sunday School?
"Sunday school" is the generic name for many different types of religious education pursued on Sundays by various denominations.
Sunday school often takes the form of a one hour or longer Bible study which can occur before, during, or after a church service. While many Sunday schools are focused on providing instruction for children (especially those occurring during service times), adult Sunday school classes are also popular and widespread.

Sunday school teachers are usually lay people who are selected for their job by a church board or committee, normally because of their advanced experience with the Bible—few teachers receive any formal training in education, though many Sunday school teachers have a background in education as a result of their occupations.

Origin of this holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this holiday. This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!
We did find reference to this holiday on several ECard websites.

    It is nice that the teachers are recognized this month as well as well as the pastors.

  Sunday school teachers are usually lay people...

I remember this from my Sunday school classes. Just regular people trying to explain and share their faith.
