Today we celebrate:

Blame Someone Else Day – This day falls on the first Friday the 13th of the year. Whatever you do wrong today, whether you say something politically incorrect, insult someone, trip, dial the wrong number, or something equally horrifying, you can blame somebody else and get away with it. Unless you've broken the law. Then, I'm afraid, you're on your own.

Employee Legal Awareness Day – This is a day to arrange for one or more of your employees to get a legal education so that you can make sure your business avoids legal problems in the future. It's a very complicated subject, since new laws are created all the time and it's rare for old ones to go away. So make sure you pick an employee that can handle all that complexity.

Madly In Love With Me Day or Self Love Day – Far too many people in this country are affected by what we think other people think about us.  Be confident of your own appeal to others. If you fall in love with yourself first, others will be drawn to your confidence and follow your example. And, if they don't, you will be self-confident enough to not care what they think and you'll be a whole lot happier anyway.

World Radio Day – This is a day to celebrate radio all over the world. We are to encourage broadcasters to cooperate with each other internationally and to provide free access to information to listeners. We must also ask major networks and smaller community radio stations to support freedom of expression and gender equality in their broadcasts.

National Tortellini Day – Created in Bologna, Italy, this is a pasta that is stuffed with things like ham, or Parmesan cheese, among other things. The Learned Order of the Tortellini (you can't make this stuff up) is an organization that is dedicated to the preservation of the traditional tortellini. So if you are brave enough to make your own, don't mess it up or there will be trouble.

To celebrate today, listen to the radio while you decide which of your employees would be best suited for a legal education. If your decision makes people unhappy, blame someone else. Then, have some tortellini for lunch and spend the rest of the day falling in love with yourself by making a list of at least fifty great things about you.
