If you've ever attended a meeting, reunion or class, chances are pretty good you've been asked to wear one whether you wanted to or not. You know what they are - those annoying identification badges that you either self-stick or pin on your lapel or shirt that say, "Hello. My Name is _______________." Well believe it or not, there is actually a special day of the year dedicated to name tags.
What's in a Name?
Nametag Day, also referred to as National Nametag Day, is an annual event that takes place during the first complete week in March, during the yearly Celebrate Your Name Week. This year's event occurs on March 7, 2013.
Other special days during the week-long event include Namesake Day, Fun Facts About Names Day, Unique Names Day, Discover What Your Name Means Day, Middle Name Pride Day and Descendants Day. No foolin'!
Whether your name is a traditional one, unusual one or trendy one, be sure to celebrate Nametag Day by proudly wearing a name tag all day long. And you never know. Maybe that little tag will come in handy just in case you forget your own moniker! And if you aren't too fond of yours, why not be someone else just for the day and make one up?
