Well, I don't know if you have this where you live, but at least here, in Romania, we use to celebrate a so-called "Name's Day".
In the (Christian religion) callender, each day has some saint (or several of them) associated with it, and today happends to be "Saint John" (John/Joan the Baptist, the one that supposedly baptised Jesus Christ), ring a bell ?
Anyway, Happy Name's Day to all the ones carrying the name Jon, John, Johan (and especially) Jonathan (*snicker*) or other variation of the name.
Have fun !

Never heard of it, and I can't see the point...
Salketer, you say we have this in Canada?
