Multiple Personality Day
March 5, 2014 in the World
Multiple Personality Day is an opportunity to get in touch with yourselves.
Someone with a split personality has two personalities. Someone with multiple personalities has more than two personalities.  Its a psychological disorder that we hope none of our readers have.
Don’t be surprised to find yourself surrounded by people who are talking to themselves today. You might find yourself talking to yourself, too!
When you wish someone “Happy Multiple Personalty Day”, you may need to do so multiple times, once for each  personality.

Ash Wednesday 2014
March 5, 2014 in the World
Ash Wednesday, in the Western Christian calendar, is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days before Easter, in 2014 at the 05th of March. It is a moveable fast, falling on a different date each year because it is dependent on the date of Easter. It can occur as early as the 4th of February (5th of February on leap years) or as late as the 10th of March.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of repentance. The ashes used are typically gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned. In the liturgical practice of some churches, the ashes are mixed with the Oil of the Catechumens (one of the sacred oils used to anoint those about to be baptized), though some churches use ordinary oil. This paste is used by the minister who presides at the service to make the sign of the cross, first upon his or her own forehead and then on those of congregants.

Lent 2014
March 5 to April 19, 2014 in the World
Lent takes place from March 05 till April 19, 2014. Lent is a solemn observance in the liturgical year of many Christian denominations, lasting for a period of approximately six weeks leading up to Easter Sunday. In the general Latin-rite and most Western denominations Lent is taken to run from Ash Wednesday to Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday) morning or to Easter Eve.
The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, penance, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial. Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events of the Bible when Jesus is crucified on Good Friday, which then culminates in the celebration on Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
During Lent, many of the faithful commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penitence. The Stations of the Cross, a devotional commemoration of Christ’s carrying the Cross and of his execution, are often observed. Many Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches remove flowers from their altars, while crucifixes, religious statues, and other elaborate religious symbols are often veiled in violet fabrics in solemn observance of the event.

National Cheese Doodle Day
March 5, 2014 in the USA
It’s National Cheese Doodle Day! Cheese doodles are a snack food made with cornmeal that has been puffed, baked, and coated with cheddar cheese. Morrie Yohai invented the cheese doodle in the 1940s. After serving as a Marine in World War II, he returned to his home in the Bronx and took over the family business—a snack food company called Old London Foods.
During the 1960s, Wise Foods, Inc. acquired the company and cheese doodles became part of the potato chip division. Today, cheese doodles are one of Wise’s strongest brands. The company produces over 15 million pounds of cheese doodles each year. That’s enough to fill 36 Olympic-sized swimming pools!
To celebrate National Cheese Doodle Day, pick up a bag of cheese doodles to share with friends!
