Madly in Love with Me Day, Get a Different Name Day, more

February 13th, 2012, is Madly in Love with Me Day, Get a Different Name Day, Value our Friendship Day, Clean Out Your Computer Day, Palindrome Day, Westminster Dog Show, Employee Legal Awareness Day, and Tortellini Day.

Madly in Love with Me Day isn't about conceit or self-absorption. Christine Arylo of Expanding Possibility, LLC, writes, "While it is true that women and girls have more equality and self esteem than ever before, something isn't changing. We believe that something is self-love.... knowing that you can do anything doesn't stop women and girls from beating themselves up, putting themselves into abusive relationships or hating and destroying their bodies." Loving yourself means protecting yourself and taking care of yourself.

Are you less than thrilled with the name your parents gave you? If so, take advantage of Get a Different Name Day. For inspiration, check out my list of celebrity baby names!

Value our Friendship Day is a nice time to meet an old friend for lunch, make a phone call to catch up, or at least send an e-greeting.

The second Monday in February is Clean Out Your Computer Day. Take time to empty your recycle bin, clear out some files and folders you no longer use, and scan your devices for viruses.

Once again today, 2-13-12, we celebrate Palindrome Day.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show begins today in New York, featuring 2,000 well-bred canines.

Employee Legal Awareness Day stresses the importance of educating employees about relevant legal issues.

Enjoy a stuffed ring-shaped pasta, reminisent of promise rings or wedding bands, while romance is in the air this week. Celebrate Tortellini Day!
