Okay that is not really a holiday, it is just the way I feel almost every day, lol. So without further ado (whatever that is, lol) here is your list of not-so-usual holidays for this month. Happy August!!!!!! (side note: have you ever tried to google any of these days, you would be surprised at the level of celebration for some of these - it is really interesting)
August 3 - National Watermelon Day
August 6 - Wiggle Your Toes Day
August 5 - Friendship Day and Sisters Day
Friendship Day is dedicated to the bond of friendship and companionship and is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year. The concept of Friendship Day originated in USA in 1935 and is now celebrated worldwide. This is the day when we express our love for our friends by exchanging gifts like cards, flowers, bracelets and friendship bands.
Several countries across the world have adopted the tradition of dedicating a day to friends and with the commercialisation of Friendship Day has gained new heights. The festival is enthusiastically celebrated amongst the youth, and exchange of friendship bands is the highlight of the day where friends compete with each other as to who gets the maximum number of bands. Some people also throw Friendship Day parties to enjoy the day with friends.
It is the perfect occasion to show your friends that you care and to recollect sweet memories of the time spent together. True friends are hard to find, so if you have one, make sure that you let your friend know on this day how much they mean to you.
Sister's Day celebrates being or having a sister. That means a lot of us will celebrate this special day.
Sisters are truly special and unique. Sure, we may argue and fight. But, when it comes right down to it, sisters are the best, the very best.
Celebrate Sister's Day by spending time with your sister. Make it a special day in some way for you, and for her.
