Today we celebrate:

National Banana Split Day – I prefer the ice cream without the bananas, but banana splits have been around for a long time so I guess there must be quite a demand for them.

Founders Day – On this day in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act which was basically a mission statement for the National Park Service that had also just been created. There are probably some celebratory activities going on in the National Park near you.

Go Topless Day – This is a day that is celebrated on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, which is tomorrow. It is all about the “if men can do it, women can too” premise. I believe that to a certain degree, but I have no desire to prove it by going topless. I don't particularly care that men can go topless, I just think that means they have more surface area to put sunscreen on and frankly, I don't have that kind of time. If you do, there are many cities throughout the nation that will be having Go Topless Day protests, feel free to join in. 

Kiss and Make Up Day – On this day, give up all your grudges and arguments and squabbles. It is time to kiss and make up with whomever you are upset with whether it's your spouse or your sibling or a friend or that person who is driving so darn slow in front of you and making you late for work.

National Second-hand Wardrobe Day –
This is a day for recycling clothes. Clothes do not have to be purchased brand new to be worn by you or your kids. You can get some great deals at thrift shops, consignment shops and second-hand stores. You can also hand clothes down from kid to kid and even give them to friends for their kids. Use them until they cannot be used anymore before you throw them away.

National Whiskey Sour Day
– Celebrated by most on this day, but some celebrate on the 29th of August. There is a video at this sight to tell you how to make one.

To celebrate today, go topless in the privacy of your bedroom while you are making your bed and getting ready for the day. If you are adventurous, feel free to do more than that. Then, get dressed in your second hand clothes and head to the park for some Founders Day fun. When you get home, kiss whomever you need to kiss to make up from whatever argument you had most recently and share a whiskey sour (hold the whiskey if you are underage) and a banana split.
