#218 – Sad August
Of all the months of the year, I think that August has to be the saddest. All of the other months have a major Holiday or some other memorable date that falls within it, August, has nothing. It is the Island of Misfit Toys of the Holiday circuit.
There are some rather interesting lesser holidays that fall in August that I think should become more popular, tho that likely is not going to happen.
Aug 10 – Lazy Day
Also known in the United States as National Lazy Day, this unofficial holiday of unknown origins honors sloths, slackers, layabouts, idlers, and lazybones. It also provides an excellent excuse to those among us who are stressed and over-worked to take the day off and recharge.
Aug 15 – Relaxation Day
The origins of this holiday are unknown, though it is thought that the holiday began as National Slacker Day in Britain.
In the hustle bustle of their daily lives, most people often forget to slow down and take some time for themselves. This can create stress and other stress-related health issues like high blood pressure and heart problems.
Aug 26 – Dog Appreciation Day
Founded in 2004 by pet and family lifestyle expert and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige, the day honors dogs for all that they do to enrich our lives and communities. The holiday also aims to raise awareness about dog adoption and the importance of providing rescue dogs with a safe and loving environment.
