-- Barbie just might be the most famous doll in the world. She has represented fifty different nationalities. She has stepped into the always-fashionable shoes of more than one hundred twenty careers. She has been played with, studied, celebrated, and criticized for more than fifty years.

Get a Different Name Day
- A day for those who are not fond of the name given to them. At birth, we are given a first name, middle, and last name. It wasn't our choice. 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.

Employee Legal Awareness Day
- A day emphasizing the importance of legal education for employees so 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 is a notorious night for men behaving badly. Unofficially, February 13th is also known as Mistress Day, the day straying boyfriends and husbands set aside for the other woman - since they are 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 a time 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.
