August 2013

Did you know that during the month of August there are NO National Holidays, BUT there are still many commemorative events taking places and lots of good things to celebrate.  For me, its all about those family birthdays, just to name a few – my brother, my sister-in-law, my father-in-law ( celebrating #75), my mother, my aunt, and my sister…let ‘em cake!

August 3rd – Lailat al-Qadr – the holiest night of the month of Ramadan

August 6th – Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima – event took place August 6, 1945

August 14th – V-J Day – Japan surrenders to the Allied Forces, thus marking the end of WWII

August 15th – Assumption of Mary – departure of Mary from this life
