August 1st: Rabbit! Rabbit!

It is August 1st!
Time to say Rabbit! Rabbit! again in hopes of a lucky month for all of us.

Do you know what else August 1st brings to us? No? Well, you are lucky that I'm here to fill you in!

August 1st (in alphabetical order) is:

  • Girlfriend's Day
  • Lughnasa (a Celtic Festival)
  • National Minority Donor Awareness Day
  • National Raspberry Cream Pie Day
  • Respect for Parents Day
  • Rounds Resounding Day
  • Spiderman Day
  • US Air Force Day
  • World Wide Web Day

  • The month of August is:
  • Admit You're Happy Month
  • Family Fun Month
  • National Catfish Month
  • National Eye Exam Month
  • National Golf Month
  • Peach Month
  • Romance Awareness Month
  • Water Quality Month
  • National Picnic Month

  • The first week of August is National Simplify your Life Week

    Today I am going to simplify my life by donating a minority to my Celtic girlfriends, delivering raspberry cream pie to my friends who sing in rounds (- think "row, row, row your boat"...I had to look up Rounds Resounding Day), and use forceful air to remove spiders from the wide webs that reappear overnight on my front porch. I think that covers everything for the first except for respecting parents which I do every day.

    Now go ahead and admit you're happy, that this was fun, that I'm a peach and you love me. That will knock off four monthly observances for you!

    This particular August also brings us a Blue Moon. We won't see another until 2015.

    Look up and enjoy!
