Today we celebrate:

Clean Out Your Computer Day – This day is always celebrated on the second Monday in February for reasons that escape me. It was started in 2000 by the Institute for Business Technology. It's going to be a big job so you better get started. When you're done, you will probably notice that your computer works faster.

Oatmeal Monday - Also known as Meal Monday, this is a day that is celebrated on the second Monday of February by universities in Scotland. Back in the 17th century university students ate mostly oatmeal which they would make into porridge. They would occasionally be allowed a long weekend to leave in order to go get more oatmeal. So they had these Meal Mondays about once a month until 1896 when the University of Edinburgh made it an official once a year holiday.

Kiss Day - This is the seventh day of Valentine week and today is a day to kiss your loved one. I'm not going to tell you how to do that, I'm sure you can figure it out on your own.

Get A Different Name Day - This is a day for everyone out there who thinks that their parents didn’t have the very best judgement when it came to choosing your name. Maybe it’s too common, or maybe it’s just not jazzy enough, or maybe it’s a little TOO unusual. Whatever the reason, if you’re not happy with your name, today is the day to change it to whatever you want.

Dream Your Sweet Day - Being the day before Valentine’s Day, this is a day to dream about your sweetheart. You don’t need to tell anyone what your dreams consist of, just keep that to yourself, thank you very much.

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.
