When the Day of the accountant is celebrated in the world
Today, only a few know when the Day of the accountant is celebrated all over the world. In fact, all the representatives of this rather ancient profession celebrate their holiday on November 10 each year. Representatives of this profession can be called irreplaceable, since without their direct help, a debit will never converge with a loan, and quarterly financial statements will be executed with errors.
This ancient profession was born several centuries ago on the territory of Egypt. From the first days of the birth of society, people began to think about the need for correct and competent accounting of economic activities. However, it is worth noting that the ancient forms of conducting such accounting were somewhat different from the modern ones. For example, instead of the usual accounting books and spreadsheets, primitive notches on trees, marks on clay tablets, knots on ropes, etc. were used before.
It is commonly believed that "the father of modern accounting" is Luka Pacioli. November 10 (the date when the accountant's day is celebrated today) 1494 Pacholi published his book entitled "Everything about arithmetic, geometry and proportion." One of the chapters of this book was also called "About accounts and other records". It described in as much detail the basic principles of accounting that were in effect at that time in Venice. It is important to note that some of the principles that Pacioli used are popular today. It was the date of publication of this book and it became a traditional day, when the Day of the accountant is celebrated all over the world.
Of course, the International Day of the accountant is not the only way to congratulate the representatives of such an ancient profession on their holiday. There is also a certain date in different countries of the world when reporting workers can be congratulated on a professional holiday. For example, in our country this is November 21, because on that day the corresponding federal law "On Accounting" was adopted.
Undoubtedly, on this day, colleagues and relatives hasten to congratulate the familiar accountants on their, of course, professional holiday. Most of them when choosing a gift, first of all, are guided by those presents that are directly related to money. A great gift is the so-called money tree. If you decide to show your originality, order a safe from chocolate or come up with an unusual scenario. Day of the accountant in this case will pass unforgettably.
You can also refer to the teachings of Feng Shui and present a present related to water. According to the wisdom of Feng Shui, it is water that attracts money. A good gift can be a small aquarium with goldfish or a medium sized indoor fountain.
If your friend the accountant prefers more modest gifts, present a picture with the river or the sea. In any case, when choosing a gift, one should be guided not by its value, but by the feelings that you put into it.
