Worship of Tools Day

When : Always March 11th

There are few things that the male population worships more than his tools. To some, a tool is a natural extension of their arm. So, Worship of Tools Day is a logical day of celebration. And, it's definitely a guy thing. Please note however, there are more than a few ladies who love to work with their hands, and find today to be an important holiday.

Need a birthday or Christmas gift idea for one of the "boys" in the family? You're never lacking for tool ideas when you visit the local hardware store.

Celebrate today by working with tools, and buying a tool or two. Receiving a tool as a gift today, makes this truly a special day.

    My background is in computer science, so my toolkit is slightly different. I still consider the programming applications as tools.

    Celebrate by bringing all your tools out and finding an exercise that would bring about some muscle burn.
    I am a woman who loves tools. As an artist, even the simplest tool can help me create art! sometimes it's even good art.

    I only worship the Lord. Perhaps this would be better known as APPRECIATION of tools day.

    I am one of the few ladies, I guess. I have done a lot of home remodeling in the past and am fairly handy at doing minor repairs. Fortunately I have a husband who is very handy so don't have to do a lot of that now days.
