Crazy Holidays Of August… Who Has Some Extra Zucchini?

Anyone who has been following the trends will see that we are rapidly approaching over-saturated territory with these “holidays” but for whatever reason people just can’t seem to get enough!

So why not take a closer look at some of the craziest holidays in August to start planning the road trips and parties accordingly.

We won’t call it a drinking game but if you were to take a sip every time a plant or animal was mentioned we promise not to hold it against you.

Crazy Holidays Of August… Who Has Some Extra Zucchini?

First off are the month-long holidays and celebrations:

  • Admit You’re Happy Month
  • Family Fun Month
  • National Catfish Month
  • National Eye Exam Month
  • National Golf Month
  • Peach Month
  • Romance Awareness Month
  • Water Quality Month
  • National Picnic Month

Then we have a few week-specific observances:

  • Week 1: National Simplify your Life Week
  • Week 2: National Smile Week
  • Week 3: Friendship Week
  • Week 4: Be Kind to Humankind Week

Then we get into the nitty-gritty with the day by day revelries.

Some of the holidays I look forward to the most are Frankenstein Day (08/30), Relaxation Day (08/15), and Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day (08/08).

Just when you thought all those fake holidays were behind us we unload the mother… well… load. Do all these holidays give you cause for celebration? Do they give you anxiety and frustration? Why so serious? Maybe you need relaxation day after all…
