Fun Facts About Names Day, Say Hi to Mom Day, more

March 5th, 2012, is Fun Facts About Names Day, Say Hi to Mom Day, National Multiple Personality Day, Crispus Attucks Day, Casimir Pulaski Day, Custom Chief's Day, and National Cheese Doodle Day.

Monday of Celebrate Names Week is Fun Facts About Names Day. Learn about the history of your family name, or look up celebrities' real names, or discover how your hometown got its name. For fun, check out my list of unique celebrity baby names.

I can't find much documentation for this holiday, but since I'm a proud mom I'll mention that today is Say Hi to Mom Day.

National Multiple Personality Day is a day to either share jokes about multiple personalities, or, if you know someone who actually has multiple personality disorder, learn how you can help.

Crispus Attucks Day honors a man thought to be a runaway slave, the first to die in the Boston Massacre.

The U.S. state of Illinois celebrates Casimir Pulaski Day on the first Monday in March. Pulaski was a Polish-born soldier who fought for America's independence in 1779.

The island nation of Vanuatu celebrates Custom Chiefs Day, in appreciation of the many tribal chiefs who reject European influence in favor of preserving local customs.

Look for the tell-tale orange-stained fingers that reveal celebrants of National Cheese Doodle Day. Join them when you feel snacky.
