Love Your Lawyer Day? Bah, humbug!

Today is supposedly "Love Your Lawyer Day," and you are encouraged to wish us a happy day, thank us for being so awesome, or even send us "a gift, flowers, or a card."

You also shouldn't tell lawyer jokes. (Unless they are really funny.)

I'm not wild about holidays that are manufactured by marketers, and this is reportedly the invention of a lawyer-marketer, sanctioned by the American Bar Association.

I would be in favor of a "Love Your Client Day," but we are already supposed to be loving you every day. (And we do!)

I can't improve on Scott Greenfield's curmudgeonly-but-serious blog post on this holiday, so I'll send you over there. Be sure to follow his links and read the comments.

And have a happy Friday and a great weekend!
