Kiss and Make Up Day, Banana Split Day, more

August 25th, 2013, is Sacrifice Our Wants for Others' Needs Sunday, Kiss and Make Up Day, Second-Hand Wardrobe Day, National Heroes' Day (Philippines), National Whiskey Sour Day, and National Banana Split Day.

The last Sunday in August is Sacrifice Our Wants for Others' Needs Sunday. How will you participate?

If you sometimes lose patience with the ones you love, here's the holiday for you. Embrace the true spirit of Kiss and Make Up Day.

I try to teach my tween daughter the value of shopping for that million-dollar outfit on a bargain budget. It's a game, a challenge, a valuable skill. Hit the consignment shops, for today is Second-Hand Wardrobe Day.

The fourth Sunday in August is National Heroes' Day in the Philippines.

The whiskey sour is a classic cocktail, around since the 1860s, but often overlooked these days. Did you know that a truly authentic whiskey sour includes egg white for frothiness? Cheers, for today is National Whiskey Sour Day.

If you're under twenty-one or simply prefer not to drink, National Banana Split Day is a great alternative. Banana splits feature enough fruit and nuts to seem sorta healthy, but they also include enough ice cream, chocolate, and whipped topping to satisfy every dessert fanatic.
