When : Always March 5th
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.
When you wish someone "Happy Multiple Personalty Day", you may need to do so multiple times, once for each personality.
