Today we celebrate:

National Root Beer Float Day – This day is celebrated by A&W which is offering free root beer floats at your local A&W Restaurants from 2pm until closing. They will be collecting donations that will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Hiroshima Day – On this day in 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in Japan. It's hard for me to wrap my head around how devastating that was for Japan. We were at war with them at the time and although this event contributed to ending the war, the cost and the pain it inflicted is unimaginable for me.

Wiggle Your Toes Day – This is a day for feet. I don't know who created this day but it's a fun one. Kick off your shoes and wiggle your toes today. It's even better if you have something to wiggle them in like sand or jello. 

National Fresh Breath (Halitosis) Day - How is the smell of your breath? Does it smell like you just woke up all day long? Or does it smell like you just brushed your teeth? This is a day to educate the public on the importance of fresh breath. If you have bad breath, no one wants to talk to you or spend time with you. If you have chronic bad breath, check with your dentist because it can also correlate to other health problems you might be having and not even know about.

National Night Out
- Celebrated on the second Tuesday in August, this is a day to keep the crime out of your neighborhood. It was begun in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a non-profit that supports several different crime prevention programs, as an effort to promote citizen involvement in keeping the criminals out of our neighborhoods.

To celebrate today, wiggle your toes in your bathroom rug while you brush your teeth. Then have a root beer float while you tell your kids all about why we dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Then, this evening join your neighborhood watch program and keep the neighborhood safe.
