Lame Duck Day- 6 February

Date When Celebrated : Always February 6th Hey, today is everything it’s quacked up to be. Lame Duck Day is set aside to give recognition to people whose tenure in a position is running out. Okay, so you are probably thinking that a “lame duck” is a duck with some sort of injury. If only that were the reason for toady! Rather, a “Lame Duck” by human, definition is a person who is in a position of some kind, and will soon be “shown the door”. The best example is an incumbent politician who lost in the November elections. They usually remain in office until the beginning of January. It also applies to leaders, managers, etc, who are retiring or whose term of office is up.
During the interim period, a Lame Duck is usually far less effective, and frequently ineffective. After all, loyalties will soon shift. It’s impossible to rally the troops to one more cause or project.
On Lame Duck Day… If you are a Lame Duck: Enjoy those final days. Reflect upon you successes, and the joys and rewards the position provided to you. Kick back a little and have some fun today, and in the remaining days. 
If you know a Lame Duck: Supporters should provide recognition and support. Non-supporters can cut the Lame Duck a little slack today. They will soon be gone.If you are a duck and you are lame, seek medical attention.
