Awesome August Holidays

Aug 01, 2014

Besides all the crazy, weird and totally bizarre day-long occasions that happen, August is the official month used to recognize Catfish, Golf, Eye Exams, Water Quality, Romance Awareness, Peaches, Foot Health, American Artists, Home Businesses and Inventors. And then there are the week-long observances in August: Clown Week (first week), Elvis Week (second week), Apple Week (second week), Smile Week (second week), Air Conditioning Appreciation Week (third week) and American Dance Week (third week).

No matter what you celebrate, we at Kidzworld wish you a Happy August!

You sound like you're being discriminative against others and their views. I think you need to lighten up and stop being such an extremist about your religion. One has to be right, or they're all wrong.
