Date: March 22 Origin: Voice actor Maurice LaMarche, known for his performances on many animated series, including "Futurama," first proposed making the date of Shatner's birthday a holiday for everyone to share their best Shatner-ian impressions. LaMarche shares credit for creating the holiday with Ohio resident Doug VanHorn. The way most celebrate is to speak like Shatner for the day, adding great emphasis and dramatic pauses where necessary.
