During these times of uncertainty, where there seems little to celebrate, I’ve found the month of August has some hidden reasons to indeed celebrate.
Like myself, I’m sure many of you did not realize there’s just about one or more things every day in August that has the potential to make you smile. Here’s a quick list of some of my favorites:
Aug. 7 – International Beer Day
Aug. 9 – National Book Lover’s Day
Aug. 10 – National S’mores Day
Aug. 11 – National Sons & Daughters Day
Aug. 13 – Left Handers Day
Aug. 14 – National Creamsicle Day
Aug. 15 – National Relaxation Day
Aug. 19 – National Potato Day
Aug. 22 – Toothfairy Day
Aug. 25 – National Banana Split Day
Aug. 26 – National Dog Day
Aug. 29 – International Bacon Day
Aug. 30 – Toasted Marshmallow Day
Aug. 31 – National Trail Mix Day
There are many more things to celebrate in August, and every day in every month, that are not on this list. During these uncertain times, though, it’s important to remember to celebrate the people and things in our lives that are helping us get through the times.
Family and friends, your pets, a good book, music, gardening, a long walk, a long talk…whatever it may be that’s getting you through these times, celebrate it, make time for it and keep on keeping on!
