Frankenstein Day, Holistic Pet Day, Eid-ul-Fitr, more

August 30th, 2011, is National Frankenstein Day, National Holistic Pet Day, Victory Day (Turkey), Constitution Day (Kazakhstan), Santa Rosa of Lima, Eid-ul-Fitr, and Toasted Marshmallow Day.

National Frankenstein Day commemorates the birth date of Mary Shelly, who wrote Frankenstein at the tender age of eighteen.

National Holistic Pet Day is a time to think about the health of your pets from a prevention point of view. Pets, like people, benefit from proper diet and adequate exercise.

Turkey observes Victory Day on this date, remembering their victory over Greek invaders in 1922.

Kazakhstan celebrates Constitution Day on August 30th. Their current constitution was ratified in 1995.

Peru rmembers Santa Rosa of Lima today as a feast day. Some celebrants drop good will letters into a hollow where St. Rose tossed the key of her belt in penance.

Eid-ul-Fitr, the Feast of Fast-Breaking, marks the end of Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr comes on the 1st day of the 10th month in the Islamic lunar calendar.

Toasted Marshmallow Day is here, encouraging us to spend time together, whether around a campfire or a kitchen stove. The only matter to debate is golden vs. blackened.
