August is National Golf Month but each day there is a different thing to be celebrating. On the first day of the month you can celebrate the internet because it is World Wide Web Day.  Then on the 8th you can have a joyful day because it is Happiness Happens Day.  Two days later on the 10th is S’mores Day, so gather around the campfire.  After working hard that week take a day off and relax on National Relaxation Day which is the 15th. Be sure to save some room for dessert on the 18th, because its Cupcake Day.  You can also pig out on waffles on the 24th because it is National Waffle Day.  And to finish the month off on a sweet note, make toasted marshmallows on the 3oth for National Toasted Marshmallow Day!
