This month has some funny, exciting, and wacky holidays to celebrate all month long. In fact, there is at least one holiday to observe each day during the month of August (with the exception of the 2nd). Here are some suggestions for celebrating each day in August.
August 1: World Wide Web Day – Celebrate this holiday by spending your day exploring the World Wide Web.

August 3: Watermelon Day – Try different recipes using watermelon. Eat watermelon at every meal. Don’t just eat it – drink it!
