Forgive Your Foe Friday, Holistic Pet Day, more

August 30th, 2013, is Forgive Your Foe Friday, Daffodil Day (Southern Hemisphere), National Frankenstein Day, National Holistic Pet Day, Victory Day (Turkey), Constitution Day (Kazakhstan), Feast Day of Santa Rosa of Lima, and Toasted Marshmallow Day.

Maybe lawyers or litigants have been your foes lately. If not, surely someone else has held you back or put you down. Wipe the slate clean, if you can, for today is Forgive Your Foe Friday.

Daffodil Day is the premiere fundraising and awareness event sponsored by the Cancer Society, observed in the Southern Hemisphere in August while daffodils are in bloom. "The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, whose bright yellow blooms remind us of the joys the new season will bring. It represents the hope there is for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer."

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.

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.
