FebruaryGet a Different Name Day
- for those who are not fond of the name given to them. At birth, we are given a first name, a middle name and a last name. It wasn't our choosing. Rather, our parents bestowed it upon us. If you like your name, good for you. If not, then today is for you. Take advantage of today to change your name.

National Tortini Day
- Tortini means "little cakes" in Italian (from the word "torta", meaning "cake".) This, of course, essentially means it can be just about anything, from cupcakes to pie to quiche.

First public school started
- The first public school in America was established by Puritan settlers in 1635 in the home of Schoolmaster Philemon Pormont and was later moved to School Street. Boys from various socio-economic backgrounds attended Boston Latin School until 1972 when girls were also accepted.

Employee Legal Awareness Day
- A day emphasizing the importance of legal education for employees so that large and small businesses reduce their risk of legal problems.

Madly In Love With Me Day
- A day of self-love, created to inspire women and girls to say “Yes!” to falling madly in love with themselves again and again for the rest of their lives. The day before Valentine’s Day because you have to love “me” before you can love "we".

Mistress Day
- It's a notorious night for men behaving badly. Unofficially, Feb. 13 is also known as "Mistress Day," the day that straying boyfriends and husbands set aside for the "other woman" - since they're spending the actual Valentine's Day with their girlfriends and wives.

Man Day
- held the day before Valentine's Day (AKA Woman's Day). It is to celebrate the men of the past, present, and future. A day to celebrate all things macho with a barrage of tattoos, stiff drinks, friendly competition, and good times.
