Happiness Happens Day, Cat Day, Date to Create, more

August 8th, 2012, is Happiness Happens Day, Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Night, International Cat Day, The Date to Create, Odie Day, Bonza Bottler Day, Nane Nane, and Ceasefire Day.

Happiness Happens Day, celebrated on August 8th, was expanded to encompass the whole month of August back in 2000. But try to be extra extra happy today.

Did your garden get out of hand this year? If so, today is the holiday for you - it's Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Night! If you want to sneak something onto my porch, I'll take zucchini, tomatoes, and money.

International Cat Day is a time to pay special attention to your cat. He or she will probably make their needs known. Am I right, kitties?

August 8th is The Date to Create, so do whatever inspires you most. No one else can judge what's good or bad in the creative realm. Your vision is all that matters.

Today is Odie Day, honoring Garfield's goofy canine friend who is always ready for fun.

Bonza Bottler Day takes place every month when the date and month are represented by the same number. 8/8, for example.

Nane Nane, literally "eight eight," is celebrated in some parts of Tanzania instead of the older Saba Saba, "seven seven."

Iraq celebrates Ceasefire Day every year on August 8th.
