February 13th Get a Different Name Day

Don’t like the name your parents gave you? Well today is the day you can change it to something you think fits you better. It is a bit involved and something you might come to regret later but there are cases where it may be called for. I knew a girl named Mary Cutter once who was proud of her family name and when she got married she did the three name thing… shew married a man named Buttoff. I am not sure she thought this one out because she became Mary Cutter-Buttoff. Then there was another girl who was named Mary, a good Christian name if there ever was one. The families last name was Juana. You figure this one out!

How to celebrate – Give yourself a new name for the day. Ask Wellcat.com why they copyrighted this day. Learn to live with the name you’ve been given.

January 7th National Bobblehead Day

January 7th National Bobblehead Day

When we think of our favorite celebrities, political leaders, sports figures and cartoon heroes having a big head maybe what we are really thinking of is their bobblehead. The bobblehead has been around for a hundred years or so, making many of them antiques! A bobblehead museum actually opened in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to celebrate those who’s heads are so big they needed to be housed where we could go visit them. So, I can only conclude that if you get a big head made to look like you, you have finally placed yourself in the annals of history.

How to celebrate – Visit the Milwaukee museum of bobbleheads. Start your own collection of bobbleheads. Think of all those you feel should be remembered with their own big head.
