March 4th is GM's Day, time to show some appreciation for your GM(s).

Geek's Dream Girl has some useful suggestions.

This isn't a naked plea for prezzies from my players, but instead a reminder that it would be nice to tell your GM how much you appreciate what s/he does to entertain you. GMing is fun (or I, at least, wouldn't do it), but it's always nice to hear that your work is appreciated.

GM's Day is actually several years old, and happens to be the anniversary of Gary Gygax's death.  This is a coincidence, as GM's Day predates the passing of that gaming icon.  Here's a posting from ENWorld from 2005 discussing how it began in 2002 (original thread).

Do something nice for your GM(s) in March - even a sincere thank you is always nice.

GMs DayIt's that time of year again, for the benign manufactured holiday for role players - GM's Day!   It's a day to let your GMs know how much you appreciate their hard work in making a world for you to play in.

Here's a link to my previous entry on this subject.

Do something nice for your favorite GM this week.

Now, that's a holiday I can get behind. [livejournal.com profile] spunkart over in the [livejournal.com profile] gmworkshop community, tried to get this going in EN World a while back, and it sounds like a nifty idea to me. Here's the initial entry, for your edification.
March Fourth for GM's Day!! This is inspired by the "Pay to play" thread...
It's clear that many out there don't feel appreciated, and clearer still that many players don't appreciate the amount of work their GM's are putting into their games*. So what I propose is GM'S DAY
GM's day is the day the gaming community would celebrate all the hard work our GM's do for us. It would be like Mother's day or Father's day, and give us all the chance to pamper our GM.
Maybe we could run a game for them as well!**
Of course, it would get all commercialised, and gaming stores would put ads up like "What are YOU getting your GM this GM's day?" and we would all end up spending lots of money, but that all comes later. What we need now is to pick a date!
All the good ones are taken of course (December 25, April 1, Feb 14th, October 31st) so we all we have left is the also ran dates...
Any suggestions? Which date would be the perfect GM's Day, and why?
Okay, we have a date - March 4th. Now all we have to do is make it happen.
*This is not true of all players and GM's of course. Some Players are very appreciative, and some GM's seem to be getting veneration(!), but you get my drift...
** Oh for all those players out there saying "What about Player's day?" - to paraphase my parents - Every day is Player's Day
Edit: to confirm the date. __________________
