Today, March 26, marks two very important occasions: National "Make Up Your Own Holiday" Day, and Leonard Nimoy's birthday. With these two facts in mind, I hereby establish today, Thursday, March 26, 2015, to be "National Leonard Nimoy Day."

Celebrated actor and director Leonard Nimoy would have celebrated his 84th birthday today. Unfortunately, this brilliant man passed away on February 27 of this year.

Let's take this opportunity to celebrate the birthday of a man whose contribution to are culture are beyond measure. Let us not only celebrate his birthday, but acknowledge his remarkable talent, artistry, and humanity.

Get your friends together, and celebrate the 1st Annual "National Leonard Nimoy Day." To think, you'll be able to tell your grand kids you were there the first time the holiday was observed.
