Unusual Things to Celebrate in August

Your calendar may not have all of these holidays on it, but we found a website that lists a plethora of things to celebrate before the summer ends.

First and most importantly of all, August is Family Fun Month. What better excuse do you need to dress up as a family? After all, the family that plays together, stays together!

It can be an educational activity too, since August is also National Literacy Month. Challenge each family member to dress up as a character from their favorite book. Kids might like to dress up as characters from Harry Potter, or fairy tales, Cat in the Hat or maybe you can choose a book to read together with a historical storyline. It’s Pooh Friendship Month too.

Adults can dress up as characters from a historical romance, military suspense, or even from that all-time best-seller, The Bible. You can find costumes to fit any of these themes by going to the top left corner of any page and entering what you’re looking for under where it says “Search by Keyword”.

August is International Air Travel Month, the third week in August is National Aviation Week, and Orville Wright's Birthday is August 19th (he was born in 1871). See what our search for pilot costumes turned up! August is also Little League Baseball Month, so we did a search for “baseball”. The second week in August is Elvis Week and August 16 is Elvis Presley Commemoration Day.

This weekend you can also celebrate things like Victory Day, today, August 14. Our search for “military” brought up some cute options. Saturday, August 15 offers two choices for fun costumes: Wizard of Oz Day and “I Love Cowboys and Cowgirls Day”. And if you want to celebrate early, Monday, August 17, is Davy Crockett's Birthday– need a coonskin cap?
