Work Like a Dog Day, Underwear Day, Beer Day, Twins Days, more

August 5th, 2011, is  Work Like a Dog Day, National Underwear Day, International Beer Day, Twins Days, and Braham Pie Day.

Work Like a Dog Day doesn't sound like much of a holiday. I guess it depends on what kind of dog. Police dogs work hard, as do guard dogs and service animals. My dog, on the other hand, just eats, sleeps, plays, and licks.

On National Underwear Day, FreshPair is giving away 5,000 pairs of underwear. Don't know why one underwear is called a pair.

Today is International Beer Day, "because we all need another excuse to drink beer."

Twins Days take place on the first full weekend in August in Twinsburg, Ohio. All multiples and their families are invited to attend.

Braham Pie Day is observed on the first Friday in August in Braham, Minnesota. The festivities include a pie art competition. Art may feature "eating pie, making pie, harvesting or growing pie ingredients, edible pie, mathematical pi, or celebrating Braham, the Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota."
