Backgammon Day, Forgiveness Day, American Family Day, more

August 4th, 2013, is  Backgammon Day, Coast Guard Day, and National Chocolate Chip Day.

On Backgammon Day, enjoy this two-player classic that dates back to Mesopotamia. Do you remember the rules?

National Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in August. Call your friends and have a party, or just swap some tweets.

National KidsDay was established in 1994 by KidsPeace, a national children's charity, "to encourage adults to spend more meaningful time with their children."

Today is the 16th annual International Forgiveness Day, as designated by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance. Life is short - forgive someone so you will both enjoy a more contented future.

On National Sisters Day, spend time with your special life-long companion, your sister, who is there long after other friends come and go.

On American Family Day, spend time with your sister and other family members who share your history and many precious memories.

Coast Guard Day honors the U.S. Coast Guard, who guard our shores and waterways. These days they also assist with Homeland Security.

Today is National Chocolate Chip Day - not the cookie, just the chip. Do whatever you want with those chips, including eating 'em straight out of the bag!
