Jan 26 – Ed, based on Lotus 1-2-3 release date
Feb 29 – Mike Alexander, “I vote to have Spreadsheet Day on Leap Year. In part, because it pays omage to the old Lotus leap year bug. But mainly because it only comes once every 4 years, and I’m fairly lazy.”
Apr 1 – Jon Peltier, “I want to overrule Debra and vote for April 1. The most fitting day of the year.”
Aug 1 – Debra, because it represents A1, the first cell on a worksheet, and avoids the April Fools stigma
