Some would say August 8th is Happiness Happens day. A day in which you are to go out of your way to make someone else happy. Smile, laugh and let yourself be happy too. BetterWorldCalendar.com has all the information you could want to know about this holiday.
Others might say August 8th is Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors Porch Night. This is the night that you share your overabundance of zucchini with your neighbor by placing it on their doorsteps. Established by Pennsylvanian Tom Roy, this day encourages sharing. Check out allrecipes.com for some great zucchini recipes and a few of Tom Roys ideas for how to successfully sneak zucchini onto your neighbors porch.
Still others might say August 8th is the Date to Create. I am not sure what this date is or what you are to do, but I can imagine it has to do with creating something.
Whatever day it is for you, enjoy today!
