August is a Time to Celebrate!
Here comes August, the symbol of summer winding down and school starting once again. August is one of those months that contain no holidays or special daysâ€”or does it? Although it is true there are no national holidays during August, there are plenty of designated special days during this month that you could get excited about. Here are some of my favorite days.
Letâ€™s start the month off with National Clown Week. Everyone enjoys a good clown (except those of us with coulrophobia). This week was first proclaimed by President Nixon in 1971 and covers the first week of the month. If you happen to be near Baraboo, Wisconsin celebrate by stopping by the International Clown Hall of Fame and Research Center.
