August Holidays

Aug 01, 2017

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 7th

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 13th

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 13thInternational Left Hander's Day. Although close to 15 percent of the world's population is left-handed, they're often treated as different! 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 30th

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.

I Just looked it up and Here is what i found....: At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas  it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion , the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now. Because of declining growth rates, it will now take over 200 years to double again. So, There are definitely more people on earth now...huh?  Bravo
