And Don't Forget to Wiggle Your Toes

You can thank Frank 151 for bringing this month's little-known holidays to our collective attention. I kinda wish my birthday fell on National Cherry Popsicle Day but, close enough.

"Weird August

Today is August 1st, marking the beginning of a month chock-full of special, fun, and mostly irrelevant holidays. The year is full of them, but in our busy lives we rarely get to participate because we aren’t aware they are taking place! Imagine how many “Play God Days” (January 9th, fyi) and “Child Labor Days” (January 31st) have gone and passed all the fun you could have had with them.
Did you thank your exterminator on Ratcatcher’s Day (July 22nd)? We didn’t think so, and who knows what he’s been doing in retalliation. A lot of them have access to master keys. We’re gonna help you out. Here is a list of all those wonderful days for August. You can thank us by having a great National Eye Exam month.
