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!
