Fresh Breath Day, La Soire i mi Lunasa, Root Beer Float Day, more

August 6th, 2012, is Wiggle Your Toes Day, Fresh Breath Day, Hiroshima Day, H.H. Sheikh Zayed Accession, Picnic Day, Labour Day (Samoa), Canada Civic Holiday, La Soire i mi Lunasa, Shop and Office Workers' Holiday, Independence Day (Bolivia), Independence Day (Jamaica), and Root Beer Float Day.

Wiggle Your Toes Day is a time to let your tootsies dance - on carpet, in the grass, at the pool, or, best of all, in the sand on a tropical beach. Enjoy!

Brush your teeth, rinse, then brush again. Now gargle some mouthwash and check on your supply of breath mints. You can't afford to be caught with bad breath on National Fresh Breath Day.
