Updated on August 1, 2012

Alright, August is the only month without a recognized holiday. Wait a minute! There are holidays in August. Here's a handy list of reasons to celebrate.

1. August 1st: National Girlfriends Day

This will get you some love. Of course you could get in trouble if you fail to recognize this day.

2. August 5th: International Beer Day

Oh Yeah! Another reason to drink!

3. August 5th: National Underwear Day

Now you know why Mom said, "You wearing clean underwear?"

4. August 6th: National Fresh Breath Day

Some people will never celebrate this one.

5. August 8th: National Dollar Day

On this day everyone has to give me a dollar. Just kidding. Soupy Sales got in trouble for that once.

Do Kindle books count?

7. August 10th: Lazy Day

Good news! This falls on a Friday this year. Love them long weekends.

Forget this holiday. It's my birthday! Everyone call out sick and we will have a huge party!

Well. I've done my part. I've supplied you with 15 reasons to call out sick. There are no Holidays after my birthday. You'll need that time to recuperate after the party!
