Good news, guys - it's finally Friday and the weekend is here.

And in even better news - it's National Leave Work at 4pm Day!

If you're lucky enough to get the extra hour off this Friday, have a great weekend.

But if your boss isn't convinced by this social media holiday, don't worry - stay out an hour longer on the tiles on Saturday night.
