August Holidays

Aug 01, 2014

Another month is about to begin and you want an excuse to party before school starts. Well, the fact that it's summer should be reason enough to lace up your dancing shoes, but if you need something else to celebrate then check out these quirky August holidays!

Sister's Day: August 3rd

Take this opportunity to show your sis just how much you care. This August holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month and isn't just for blood relatives. It's a chance to let all the girls in your life (step-sisters, best friends, etc.), know how important they are to you. Sorry boys, you're going to have to wait 'til next May to celebrate Brother's Day.

Middle Child's Day: August 12th

Ever feel like you've been left out or your other siblings get all the attention from the 'rents? Feel like you're stuck in an episode of Malcom in the Middle? Well, today is your day to shine, middle kid. Be sure to write it on the calendar in the kitchen so they don't forget your special day - like they did with your birthday last year.

Left Hander's Day: August 13th

Way back in 1976 the organization Lefthanders International declared August 13th International Left Hander's Day. Although close to 15 percent of the world's population is left-handed, they're often treated like big ol' weirdos! But would you believe that the likes of Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth and [kwlink]Prince William[/kwlink] are all left-handers? And don't forget to celebrate your fave left-handed actors like Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts!

Women's Equality Day: August 26th

Women's Equality Day is celebrated on August 26th to remember the day women were finally allowed to vote in the United States. In 1920, the United States Congress added the 19th amendment to the Constitution, thanks to the efforts of feminist Susan B. Anthony. It wasn't until 1971 though, that Women's Equality Day was designated an official holiday.

La Tomatina Festival: August 27th

The world's biggest food fight takes place in the small town of Bunol, in eastern Spain, on the last Wednesday in August. More than 30,000 people flock to Spain each year to take part in this messy tradition.
